Economics at your fingertips  

Africa—Missing Globalization's Rewards?

Janet Koech

Annual Report, Globalization and Monetary Policy Institute, 2010, 18-27

Abstract: Globalization increases integration of world economies through trade, financial ties, information exchange, technology and the movement of people. The rising importance of world trade and capital flows reflects enhanced economic and financial linkages. Nations with superior access to world markets can more fully exploit their competitive advantages, opening their economies to international competition. With greater capital flows and freedom of capital movement, resources more effectively move to their most productive locations, contributing to rising living standards.
