Globalization, its friends and foes

This will be the website for Coping With Globalization, a Midcoast Senior College course in fall 2017 taught by Doug Bennett.  This site will be under construction for most of the summer.

We are living in an era of globalization.   We are seeing greater flows across national boundaries of people, goods, money and technology.

This globalization threatens long-standing approaches to providing security and equality for people in many countries, rich and poor. Is globalization something government policy should promote, or should we move towards more protectionist or nationalist solutions?

Who wins and who loses through globalization? How can we pursue justice at home and abroad in the face of increasing globalization?
