The Truth of Globalization
Bethany N. Nichols
Dr. Debra Cartwright, Faculty Mentor

Various measurements of economic welfare and social well being are examined to ascertain the true effect of globalization on world and national economies. The time period examined spans 1950-2000 but focuses on 1980-2000 as a period or rapid globalization and major global changes. Data yields mixed results and portions could support either side of the globalization debate when each measurement is examined alone. Overall, the data shows that despite opponents of globalization, the world economy is significantly better off than it was mid century.
