Their astute article notes the shifting balance between advanced and developing economies, a change springing partly from digitization, which continues to accelerate the flows of goods, services as well as information around the world. getAbstract recommends this enlightening forecast of “the next – and markedly different – wave of globalization.”
In this article, you will learn
- Why globalization will continue to expand,
- How digitization helps that expansion, and
