The Globalization Myth: Why Regions Matter

This program is part of our annual International Perspectives Series. To purchase a series ticket, please click the graphic above.

Council on Foreign Relations fellow Shannon O’Neil argues that regionalization, not globalization, has not only been the biggest economic trend in the last forty years, but is also the best way forward. In examining supply chain hubs in Asia, Europe, and North America, she found that when countries have strong commercial ties with their neighbors and participate in regional production, they gain a competitive edge, employ more workers, and avoid ending up in last place on the global supply chain. O’Neill joins us on March 9 for our International Perspective Series to discuss her book The Globalization Myth: Why Regions Matter. O’Neil believes that we should be embracing and deepening regional ties to succeed in an internationally connected world rather than choosing between globalism and isolationism.
