The Economics
of Globalization

The contents of this page comprise what we would consider to be a
Primer on the Economics of Globalization.

If you're serious about understanding the strategies and tangible concerns of globalization, take the time to study some of this background information. You will be startled, informed, empowered and aware of the real conflicts between Democracy, freedom,  human rights... and free trade and globalization. Even more, you'll understand the differences between free trade and globalization.

The Road to Serfdom by Friedrich Von Hayek is a classic. Discusses totalitarianism, shows how economic freedom relates to social freedom. In context, this book explains current political and economic policies.  Hayek Economic Theory is the basis for "free market" economies, and the theory for Reagonomics, trickle-down economics, as well as the economic paradigm first employed by the United Kingdom long ago.

von Hayek and Milton Friedman have produced the economic minds of people like Ronald Reagan,  Margaret Thatcher, Tony Blair, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul O'Neill, George Shultz, Paul Volcker, Alan Greenspan, George Bush, Sr., Dick Cheney and the favorite son of the leaders of the plunderer set is George Bush.. 

Note that the President I left out is Lyndon Johnson (watch Path to War on HBO), and that Jimmy Carter was the designer for the new world order (intended to be more compassionate).  See the 1961 edition of the Encyclopedia Brittannica.  Look up the Tri-Lateral Commission.  You won't get the same explanation as what is on the web, or in later editions.
