GLOBALISATION: AN ANALYSIS OF THEORETICAL PERSPECTIVES AND DOMINANT CAUSES

The paper aims to give an analysis of globalisation in terms of its theoretical perspectives, root causes and general policy implications. Following the presentation of some definitions and of the specific character of globalisation, the paper considers the role of the technological environment and of transnational companies in the process. It then analyses the main theoretical approaches or theses on globalisation: hyperglobalism; scepticism and transformationalism. The subsequent analysis of causation starts with a distinction between driving forces and dominant forces – or causae causantes – of globalisation. The dominant causes are seen as a subset of the driving ones and are identified with those innovative elements in the technological and or organisational spheres which contribute to the development of the productive forces. Conclusions and policy implications follow. Read more
