Public Perception of Globalization’s Impact Shapes Trade Realities

Annual Report, Globalization and Monetary Policy Institute, 2011, 21-25

Abstract: History teaches us that perception often matters much more than reality in shaping public opinion. Accordingly, perception is crucial to understanding the outcomes of globalization, from increased free trade and the breakdown of political and economic barriers to technological integration, greater capital flows and worker migration. Ideally, the public?s evaluations are sound and closely reflect reality. Polling data, however, indicate this is often not the case. Misplaced perceptions may profoundly affect the course of globalization policies.
