changes affect production, consumption, and global investment (Stromquist, 2002)
goal of globalization: to erase national boundaries for economic purposes
Internationalization: "specific policies and programmes undertaken by governments, academic systems and institutions, and even individual departments or institutions to cope with or exploit globalization" (Altbach, 2004, p. 6)
typically the focus of our conversations concerning global issues in higher education

“an economic doctrine that sees the market as the most effective way of determining production and satisfying people’s needs” (Stromquist, 2012, p. 25)
