UPS executive Romaine Seguin is a champion of trade. She neatly explains that poverty, terrorism and violence recede when goods cross borders. Of course, UPS is a major beneficiary of the global movement of goods, which may explain Seguin’s simplistic, single-faceted outlook – one that disregards those whom globalization has ignored as well as ideology’s role in terrorism. Nevertheless, Seguin’s synopsis deftly encapsulates the arguments in favor of global trade. getAbstract recommends Seguin’s rudimentary introduction to members of developing communities who seek to boost their local economies.
In this summary, you will learn
- What benefits global trade beckons,
- How integration into the global economy reduces poverty and
- How trade reduces incidents of terrorism.
