Globalisation Versus Nationalism Essay

For much of the 20th century, ideological discussions and debates have centered on liberal versus conservative, left versus right.  No longer.  The ideological divide of the 21st century is emerging as globalism versus nationalism.  Since the end of World War II, global integration and technological progress have fueled a new world order centered on free trade, open borders and interdependent economies.  Goods, capital and people should be able to move freely across borders, which is actually the meaning of globalization.  But Greg Ip of the Wall Street Journal argues that globalism is a “mindset that globalization is natural and good, that global governance should expand as national sovereignty contracts.”  The new nationalist surge has startled and shocked the advocates of globalism.  This new nationalism is the vital center of Brexit and the election of Donald Trump.

In a recent essay, Greg Ip offers several salient observations about this new ideological struggle between globalism and nationalism.

  1. The new nationalists seek to reassert control over their own countries. Their targets are global structures such as the European Union, the World Trade Organization (WTO), NATO, the United Nations and the North American Free Trade Agreement.  However, the new nationalists posit no credible plans for replacing the institutions of globalization they seek to tear down.
  2. The globalists have underestimated the collateral damage globalization has inflicted upon workers. They “placed too much weight on the strategic advantages of trade and dismissed too readily the value that many ordinary citizens still attach to national borders and cultural cohesion.”
  3. Historically, Great Britain presided over the first era of globalization, from the mid-1800s through 1914. They advocated free trade and the gold standard.  That era gave way to an extreme era of nationalism, which produced World War II.  But after World War II, “the logic of globalism shifted beyond trade to grand strategy.  By ceding modest amounts of sovereignty to international institutions, a country could make the world, and itself, far stronger by pursuing its own narrowly defined interests.”  For these globalists, economic and geopolitical self-interest were inseparable.  Hence, the 1957 Treaty of Rome led to the formation of the European Union of 28 nations.  The assumption?  Economic and political integration world make war unthinkable.  For the next five decades, trade, industrialization and demographics produced a cycle of rising prosperity.  By the 2000s, globalism appeared triumphant.
  4. But, when Bill Clinton advocated for China joining the WTO, he predicted that this would “likely . . . have a profound impact on human rights and political liberty.” It did not!  China met its WTO obligations but discriminated against foreign investors and products while maintaining an artificially cheap currency.  “A wave of Chinese imports wiped out 2 million American jobs, with no equivalent boom in US jobs linked to exports to China.”  Furthermore, China became even more repressive at home and antagonistic abroad.  China was undermining the virtues of globalism.
  5. As China and Germany amassed huge trade surpluses, cross border financing made financial regulation of global financial markets nearly impossible. In 2008, these global financial markets collapsed and produced the worst global financial crisis since the 1930s.  This crisis rattled the globalists but did not curtail their passion for openness and trade.  Hence, President Obama’s 12-nation Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) aimed directly at challenging China’s dominance of Asia.  However, with the election of Donald Trump the TPP is dead.
  6. Ip correctly argues that the intense backlash against immigration (and globalism) is cultural, not fundamentally economic. The voters for Brexit and for Trump “were bothered less by competition from immigrants than by their perceived effect on the country’s linguistic, religious and cultural norms.”  This is perhaps the most troubling aspect of this new nationalism—its penchant for xenophobia and for ethnic and religious exclusion.  There are no good examples of this inclination from history.  It can become ugly and lead to violence against minorities within a country.  No sincere Christian should embrace radical xenophobia or exclusion.  Indeed, the first era of globalization, which ended in 1914 with the outbreak of World War I, gave way to a long period of declining inequality and ruthless exclusion (witness Germany, Italy and Japan in the 1930s), in which “harmful countervailing forces played a bigger role than beneficial ones.  History might repeat itself.”

In conclusion, those who have advocated for the ideology of globalism and worldwide economic integration seriously underestimated the risks and potential dangers that would result from large parts of society feeling as if they were left behind due to more open trade with open borders as the world’s economies integrated together.  Those sentiments and real feelings explain why the Brexit vote was successful.  Such developments also explain the emergence of Trump.  Fundamentally, the ideology of nationalism is (temporarily?) providing a meaningful and energized alternative to the ideology of globalism.  Will the alternative of nationalism survive?  Will it thrive and permeate the other nations of Europe?  There are four major elections being held in Europe during 2017.  Each one of these elections could potentially result in victories by the nationalists in France, Italy, and the Netherlands, and even in Germany.  If the nationalist forces all win in Europe, it could mean the death of the European Union.  What exactly Donald Trump will do as he rides the wave of this intense new nationalism is anybody’s guess.  But one thing is for certain right now:  Globalism in the United States (and the world?) as a governing ideology is on hold.  Is it dead?  Only time will tell.

It is true that globalization may provide competition for countries and encourage countries to economically develop, however, we must not forget that as countries become more and more interconnected with each other; a more "dominant" culture will undoubtedly end up overthrowing the "weaker" ones. This means that important traditions, political systems and religions will be lost for many of the "smaller" and "weaker" countries. Now, this does not mean that I believe nationalism has only positive aspects. Most countries/cultures need to lean on others in order to survive, especially with how technology is advancing in a direction to further interconnect us. This means that for a country to be able to thrive in this age and day, they must to a certain extent, be open to globalization.

Both globalization and nationalism are important, globalization helps countries, have greater contact with other countries and cultures, it helps them with trade, technological exchange and more. But nationalism is also important as it should not be replaced by the influences of other countries during globalization.

I think that both concepts are vital for the survival and development for every country and society nowadays. On one hand, it is imperative to mention that every society and culture is vulnerable and sort of exposed to the process of globalization, and this has both advantages and disadvantages. Through erosion of national boundaries, the exchange of ideas, goods and services, and the creation of information networks can favour every country to some extent; satisfying consumers around the globe, improving technologies, and creating jobs, for instance. Also, the process of globalization is important because it is the way the world economy stabilizes nowadays; no one is self-sufficient.

However, I believe that there must be limits to this global homogenization and that nationalism is important in the sense that one must protect and value one's community and its rights. Because otherwise there might be a loss of cultural identity and more.

Globalization is an important element in the development of a country. It aids in the expansion of a country's economy by the creation of new relations with other countries. More developed countries are able to invest in less developed countries to provide more jobs, more capital, advances in technology, among others. Nonetheless, it also involves the flow of ideas. As a nation becomes more developed there can be negative consequences concerning nationalism. Countries tend to lose their ideas and costumes when they become more interconnected with others and begin to adapt to new cultures.

In my opinion, globalization and nationalism should go hand in hand with the development of a country. Globalization helps elimiante barriers between regions, and has connected the world more than ever, making it easier to reach places we couldn't reach before, and arrive at faster times, furthermore it has made it easier to exchange culture, ideas, entretainment almost instantaneously. This if applied correctly can help boost a country's economy, and make people more aware of what happens in other parts of the world.

Nationalism is also a major factor for a country's development, as it is what connects people, based on their history. It is crucial that people feel identified with their nation, as not only does this help unify the country, and avoid internal conflicts, but also if people don't feel identified with their culture, and don't embrace it, the true values of a country will not be represented correctly at a global scale.

In my opinion, first nationalism should be enhanced in our country because we should make use of our resources that we manufacture that will make us proud that yes India has the capability to be a developed country but what happens is that we are most often making use of other country resources which is making India to be called as developing nation, it is not that globalisation should not be done but globalisation should be the second point in the development of the nation. It is also required to promote friendliness, to promote import-export of the country.

Both are important in their own respect. Globalisation has made countries to share technology and ideas which helped the nations to boost their trade, create employment and above all creating a positive environment to respect each other for whatever they are irrespective of background. Nationalism is a must as one shouldn't forget their roots of culture and traditional values and love their motherland. The feeling of your country performing well in any field gives you immense pleasure.

In my opinion, globalization is very important for any country as well as nationalism. For developing country like India, it is very important to be connected to with rest of the world for the purpose of business, communication, finance, cultural exchanges, tourism etc. It helps creating job opportunity.

Definitely friends both these terms play a immense role while prospering of a nation is considered.

It may be just compared to handing over reigns of a buisness to a child when he turns out be capable for this.

In the same way when the country gets internally well nationalised and united then it will be a must to step towards globalisation.

Here is the junction a nation gets to know of its stand in world and enshrine the needed innovations to help solve problem of unemployment, doing away with social evils with liberal thoughts.

In my opinion, firstly every country have to give the first preference to Nationalism. When nationalisation of domestic market goods and services are to succeed, then the globalisation of goods & services will be more successful. But here happening is other country's goods are getting more inside our country. So as per that when we have to increase the utilisation of own country's products and services, then automatically there will be more development in our country.

In my opinion, globalisation is great because it leads to greater international interdependence and thus will eventually achieve world peace. It also expands markets, making them more competitive. This reduces monopolies reducing prices and the cost of living. Wages increase as well as a result of more competition. Bigger markets also give consumers more economic freedom and thus more political freedom to express themselves.

All of these factors have and will continue to increase living standards across the world, so long as we don't head down the path of nationalism that leads to violence and serfdom. If you underestimate the evil of nationalism then remember that it caused two world wars and countless genocides.

Hello everybody.

According to my opinion globalization is one of most plate form to bring the new ideas, establishment of new technology and to know the culture of other countries etc. If I talk about our country economic improvement it is possible due to export and import of goods and dealing with requirement thing with the other country. Earlier year India deals with Russia related to weapons and with japan related to bullet train etc. Really It can never possible without Globalization.

Everybody are interesting to know new things and going to tour in other country and also foreigners are interesting to visit our country to see historical places and know about the Indian culture. A nation can not implement to own self at the world level without globalization.

So Globalization is a Factor related to business with other country and to make the emblazon nation.

In my point of view, the globalization plays a very crucial role in the growth of our country. The growth in terms of economy, GDP, technology and in health also. But to improve globalization we need to the development of our nation, to do the same we have to apply our mind thoughts and creativity to our land so that can able to compete with any other countries. And also after that, we can develop a good relationship between the all other countries in the world. Hence we can say that without nationalism we can not expect globalization and vice versa.

!>>> In my point of view, In a country, both globalization and nationalism should go hand in hand.

Globalization refers to a process by which businesses or organization achieved international influence or start operating at international scale.

A country is to be called developed if it is able to compete with the world in all sectors and gained some rank in superiority in any sectors like IT sectors, Agriculture sectors etc.

Since for these, we need to know other countries technologies, employment skills and many other things.

Globalization helps us to meet the demand of acknowledging these.


Globalization play's a very crucial role in country development.

1. It enhances the employment of country. And also it helps to develop the employment skills of an economy such to compete with the world.

2. Gaining the use of new technologies that far has not yet developed by the nation.

3. It's built strong trade ties with the nations, etc.


Globalization carries some disadvantages along with are as follows.

1. It's bankrupt many local businesses or organization.

2. People of the nation no longer follows its own culture. The began to survive by focusing on less costly costumes, dresses, etc.

Also before competing with world economies we need have an internally developed nation, in these context NATIONALISM coming into the picture.

According to Nationalization, it states the process of transforming private assets into public assets under the public ownership of national government or state.

Nationalization refer's to the context of building a nation without competing with the world.

Small scale organization, firms, and businesses are provided supports from the government for its development such that in future it can compete with the world.

Allowing no taxes on export and low taxes in the import of goods.

Providing good sources of education for skilled employment.

I think both Globalisation and Nationalism are required for the progress and development of a country. With globalization, we can get up to date with the latest technologies, keep our pace matching with that of other countries and at the same time maintain healthy relations with other countries. We never know we might need anyone at the time of distress.

The very idea of nationalism, when linked with Globalisation, is when you get inspired by the technologies and develop your own model so that other countries appreciate it and trade with it. It's not about taking aid from other countries but it's about following the principle of "Aid and Trade". Nationalism comes when you stay in your country and contribute your brain in the progress of the country and take your nation to a higher level and not leave your country in search of opportunities. It's about giving back to the country that created you.

If Globalization is accepted by the world, there will be no boundaries alive for which people could develop Nationalism.

The direct impact of globalization will be observed in a diversion of Government's Huge amount of money flow from Army, Ammunition and other Forces to the welfare of every citizen of the country.

If Technological produce is better in China or Japan and at the same time, agricultural produce and man Power is significant in India then Why not let's share and benefit everybody.

Hey guys,

Although nationalism is important for development within our country and for the growth of our companies, globalization plays a much bigger and serious role. It helps a country to open up to what the whole world has to offer and works together in a healthy competitive society. It helps a country to achieve development and bigger money returns on a larger scale.

And by this I don't mean to tell that a country has to avoid and ignore its small companies, but instead use the revenue and resources that it obtains through taxes and other sources for development and upbringing of the small industries.

If we talk about developing countries there few sector where we can fight with mnc's where we should accept globalization and for example if a area where we still need to develop than we need only to allow come technology and not globalization so totally it depends on condition of country which is better option to grow.

I believe we are leaving in a planet where every one of us are so matured that what is right or wrong. I think that there should not be any kind of inhumanity among the national and globalization and the most important tag the globalization should not forgot that, the implementations, upgrade, superiority of the globalization is all by the efforts of nationalism. As of the current view of the society it has become such away that the products used by one country are bought to the other country and get to be sold which makes that particular country currency down and down. I THINK IF THIS ISSUE HAS A SOLUTION, THERE WILL BE MANY COUNTRIES LIKE CHINA, NOT THE ONE.

Globalization and Nationalization can co-exist, but only to the point when globalization is not confused with Westernization. Post-Independence, we Indians, have had strong infatuations with western traditions and way of life. To globalize does not necessarily mean to adhere to a different philosophy and abandoning our entire belief system. Different countries can co-operate peacefully on economic as well as other platforms without infringing upon the Nationalistic ideologies of another nations.

I would like to add an important historical point here. Back in the day, our country was proud to have Universities like Taxila and Nalanda where students from all over the world came and gained knowledge in various disciplines. The medium of language was partly alien to the foreign students. Still they came and studied. After all, it was the education that mattered and not the language.

It is one of the few examples where we managed to globalize tremendously keeping the nationalistic tendencies alive. There was a huge influx of foreign students at that time. Currently we do have "world class" management institutes but they do not have the same amount of foreign influx. We certainly have globalized a lot post-independence, but that globalization has come at the cost of Nationalism.

And this is what we need to keep in mind. For a country having tremendous cultural heritage, nationalistic ideologies are an intrinsic part of getting Globalized. If we continue on the current trend.

Hello Friends,

Globalization and Nationalism both are equally important for any country to have an eminent stand in the world market. As globalization gives a better way of sharing ideas, technology and knowledge in the current market situation resulting in emerging out better solutions but it should be done in such a way so that it must hinder the ethics of nationalism.

Globalization is the product of multinational corporations greed, exploiting and ravaging poor nations for corporate profit. Multinational corporations from the US have the US govt in their pockets. They rob US jobs with overseas slave wage workers and create dependence on other countries, like the mideast for oil and china for our cheap trinkets. Id be glad to pay a little more for oil and parts and trinkets and stuff to keep jobs in the US. The US through globalization brought on by multinational corporations, most based right here in the US have depleted the independence of the US.

In roman times, all roads led to Rome. The wealth of the roman empire flowed from the rest of the world into Rome. When history looks back, The US empire will be the only one in history to have created such massive wealth and gave it away to the rest of the world who still hated them for it.

In my opinion countries like Iraq, Afghanistan, Egypt or any other country for that matter do not appreciate our help our intervention, our wars, our democracy, our aid or anything about the US.

Globalization might be good for some countries, but it is bringing down the US. Time for nationalistic policies keeping jobs and a good economy at home before we spread the wealth to the rest of the world.

Globalization and Nationalization are two very different terms. Globalization refers to assimilation of the best technology, economic pattern, defense, education, etc. Whereas nationalism symbolizes closeness or adherence to ones own values and culture which includes social, economic, political etc.

In the past due to less or no globalization countries development were stagnated or slowed, those were the days when nationalism was dominant. But at present we are convinced that if it was not for globalization we might have been still ignorant and poor and development a far dream.

Having said that to reap the fruits of globalization we have to create a favorable national environment. In short. We need a good blend between globalization and nationalism.
