The world seems to be coming apart at the seams. Many of the apparent certainties of the post–Cold War era lie in tatters. In the West, what appeared to be a political consensus on the value of economic integration has given way to increasingly acrimonious debates about who wins and who loses in an age of economic globalization. Are Mexican workers stealing US and Canadian jobs? Has the global 1 percent rigged the game for its benefit? Is China engaged in a malevolent campaign for world domination? Or are we all bound to lose on a planet of untrammelled climate change? In this talk, Professor Roberts sets out a meta-analysis of the competing narratives driving debates about who wins and who loses in an age of economic globalization. This framework helps to make sense of the backlash against economic globalisation and where it might take us in terms of future policies.
