It's common for opponents of globalization to use the term as a catchall for
all the features of human life that they don't like; while at the same time
they enjoy many of the fruits of globalization from goods to music to foods.
The core policy issue is whether a border should be used to stop
transactions that would be allowed if both parties were on the same side of
it. To learn the answer come and hear Dr.Palmer's take on this.
