This chapter discusses globalization from different angles and summarizes major critical voices raised against it. The implications of globalization for business ethics are discussed: there is substantial disagreement on a number of ethical topics across the globe, which makes it difficult for multinational companies to find a common ground for meaningful ethical dialogs. An alternative view on globalization is proposed. This view focuses on the establishment of an institutional order that enables the realization of win-win potentials through global networking. The chapter closes with illustrative case studies on the problem of child labor and the global transportation of food.

Keywords:   economic growth, international trade, free trade agreement, value pluralism, global village, child labor, developing countries, World Trade Organization, International Monetary Fund, World Bank
