Understanding the location interdependence of multinational firms and how they agglomerate with one another is critical to designing and improving economic policies. These authors’ analysis, using a worldwide plant-level dataset and a novel index of agglomeration, yields a number of insights into the economic geography of multinational production. In addition to market access and comparative advantage motives, multinationals' location choices are significantly affected by agglomeration economies including not only vertical production linkages but also technology diffusion and capital-market externalities.
Various aspects of globalization are seen as harmful by public-interest activists as well as strong state nationalists. This movement has no unified name. "Anti-globalization" is the media's preferred term. Activists themselves, for example Noam Chomsky, have said that this name is as meaningless as saying the aim of the movement is to globalize justice. Indeed, "the global justice movement" is a common name. Many activists also unite under the slogan "another world is possible," which has given rise to names such as altermondisme in French.
Nothing goes Anti-Globalization. Anti-Globalization is just a misperception by people who don't understand it deeply. Globalization is evolving in a different way for developed and developing countries. By replacing its factories in developed countries and new technology created a panic. Also, China talks to open up its economy for globalization, but it also creates perception of anti-. Because China invest in poor states where it finds an appropriate national agglomeration for their benefit. But poor states ignore the future of economic situations.
I hope people can get the modernization of lifestyles and industries alter work and life patterns more fundamentally.
