Every era has concepts that capture the public imagination, and "globalization" has recently emerged as one for our time. The term conveys a sense that international forces are driving more and more developments in the world, and thus crystallizes both the hopes of some people that we will finally achieve a global society and the fears of many others that their lives and jobs are threatened by forces beyond their control.
