Comparative Analysis of Globalization and International Economic Governance
World Politics is a complex area of study with many different sub-disciplines, which are all necessary to understand the workings of world government and global economics. World Politics is often called world order or world government. It is also known as political economy. It is a complex field of study that includes political science, international law, sociology, engineering, business, and Geography. The study of world politics almost always involves an analysis of the relationship of world political leadership to world economics.
Comparative political economy refers to a study of world politics, which examines how the political systems of countries affect the production and use of productive resources. Comparative political economy attempts to give some meaning and some significance to the differences and discrepancies of contemporary political systems in different parts of the world. For instance, national currencies differ quite significantly from one country to another, but each country has a common currency that is accepted worldwide. A nation’s currency becomes highly valuable when national institutions and government share it as a major reserve currency, such as the U.S. dollar. Political analysts have continually tried to provide some meaning to these discrepancies through the comparative study of world politics.
Another branch of comparative political economy, which is equally important to understanding world politics is that of world order. This encompasses a wide variety of issues, ranging from how world politics affect trade and finance, the distribution of income and wealth, and security in the world, to the definition of legitimate statehood and national identities, and finally, the relationship of international organizations to domestic politics and power. These problems have been the subject of books and articles for decades, and these writings form a foundation for most graduate and undergraduate programs on world politics. Without a proper background in the study of world politics and its effect on world order, it is impossible to develop a comprehensive perspective on the matter.
The theories and concepts developed by those who study world politics and global economics have had profound impacts on the way that global politics are understood today. One might even label these theories as the “world view” of international relations. Many scholars point out that, before there was any global internet, the dominant model of how international relations was understood – the Weberian “positives for all” model – was already in place.
With the advent of the internet, however, came the ability to broaden the perspective of those studying world politics and global economics. In particular, scholars have begun to focus more on theories of global governance at the interface of international politics and global economics. According to these scholars, there are two important forms of analysis in comparative analysis: structural analysis, which studies descriptive phenomena, such as globalization, and qualitative research, which investigates descriptive as well as instrumental causes and effects of globalization. More specifically, then, we can talk about these two types of research in the context of studying the relations between globalization and international economic governance. Let’s discuss briefly how global politics and global economics impact the relationship between the two topics.
International political globalization has been accompanied by rapid developments in global economics. The growth of international trade, more flexible international capital flows, and liberalization policies have all played a significant role in the evolution of globalization. As the globalization process proceeds, there is a growing concern that international political challenges may impede the realization of its potential for overall economic development. This concern is not entirely unwarranted, seeing that many of the largest problems of world politics can be attributed to the lack of political openness and freedom. On the other hand, there is no denying the fact that globalization and international relations go hand in hand – whether it is the rise of China as the world’s manufacturing leader or the emergence of a number of highly developed countries in South East Asia as they strive to join the global economic fold; globalization will continue to shape the future of world politics.
