Economic globalization is one of the most powerful drivers of social change in the contemporary world. This course asks what economic globalization is, why it takes the form that it does, and how it affects the lives and livelihoods of working people in the poor countries of the global South and the rich countries of the global North. We begin by surveying the extraordinary range of economic realities faced by men and women who must labor for their income. We examine recent trends in the working conditions and living standards of sex workers in Thailand; small farmers in Jamaica, plantation workers in Latin America; auto workers in Mexico and the U.S., and low wage service sector workers in the United States. We then consider three social science approaches to understanding these dynamics neoclassical economic theory, world systems theory, and regulation theory as well as the analysis of NGO critics of the current (neoliberal) model of economic globalization. For each type of analysis, we are interested in how they explain current trends, and what these explanations imply forthe best strategies for improving the situation of workers in the global economy.
