Wirk[eedit | eedit soorce]

His 1997 beuk Haes Globalization Gone Too Far?' wis cried “ane o the maist important economics beuks o the decade” in Bloomberg Businessweek.

In his article, he focused on three tensions atween the global mercat an social stability. Pointin oot that the sae-cried "globalization" haes a dilemma o promotin internaitional equality while exposin faut lines atween the naition states who hae the skills an caipitals tae success in global markets an those who dae nae hae thes advantage an sees sic free mercat seestem as a threat tae social stability an deeply domestic norms.[3] Accordin tae his analysis, thare are three categories o reasons on why thir tensions arise.

First, the tension is caused via globalization acause reduced barriers tae tred an foreign direct investments draw a vivid line atween naitions an groups that can tak advantage o sic cross-border relations an those who cannae. Here, Rodrik refers tae the first category o groups as heichly skilled wirkers, professionals, an those who are free tae tak thair resoorces whaur thay are maist in demand. The seicont category wad include unskilled wirkers an semiskilled wirkers who, unner globalization, becomes mair elastic an easily substitutife.

Seicont soorce for tension comes acause globalization engenders conflicts within an atween naitions ower domestic norms an social institutions. Mair technology an cultur are bein standardized aroond the warld, different naitions wi different norms an value tend tae shaw repulsion toward sic collectife norms diffused internaitionally in sic standardized form.

Lastly, the third threat o globalization arises acause it haes made it extremely difficult for naitional govrenments tae provide social insurance.
