Is the growing global dominance of neoliberal capitalism increasing the economic and political freedoms of most people on the planet



 Is  the  growing  global  dominance  of  neoliberal  (a.k.a.  “free  market”)  capitalism  increasing   the  economic  and  political  freedoms  of  most  people  on  the  planet?  

  (i)  After  outlining  the  thesis  you  will  develop,  briefly  outline  the  range  of  positions  on  the  issue   along  the  spectrum  running  from  neoliberal/conservative  through  liberal  to  radical  and  indicate   how  your  thesis  relates  to  these  positions.  

  (ii)  As  your  argument  unfolds,  indicate  not  only  where  you  stand  but  also  why,  and  not  only  how   you  justify  your  position  but  also,  at  least  briefly,  what  you  consider  the  main  problems  with  the   positions  you’re  rejecting.      

    (iii)  It’s  vital  to  take  into  account  readings  and  discussions  from  all  four  sections  of  the  course  up   to  February  28  (and  especially  the  section  on  politics  as  well  as  the  one  on  economics),  begin   your  preparation  for  this  paper  (not  necessarily  the  paper  itself)  by  reviewing  and  comparing   what  Norberg,  Steger  (especially  in  Ch.  7),  and  Hickel  2012  (especially  at  the  end)  have  to  say   about  the  relationship  between  what  we’re  calling  neoliberal  globalization  and  freedom  in  both   its  economic  and  its  political  dimensions,  including  their  different  views  regarding  the   relationship  between  neoliberalism  and  democracy.     

here a link to chapter 7, (Steger distinguishes between globalization and three types of globalism – market globalism, jihadist globalism, and justice globalism in chapter 7. Globalization is a social process, while globalism is an ideology that endows a concept of globalization with a particular concept or value. He considers market globalism the dominant ideology of our time and believes that there are five major ideological claims of market globalism. When discussing justice globalism, the book uses, by way of example, the WTO protests in Seattle in 1999 to highlight this emerging social justice movement. Steger does an excellent job of using the 9/11 attack to illustrate the devastating effect that jihadist globalism can have, highlighting the fact that Osama Bin Laden and Al-Qaeda terrorists fed on the perceived “Americanization” of the world to justify their actions.)

please read all the guidelines: GUIDELINES  

  Length  -­‐-­‐  Your  paper should consist of about FIVE pages of writing,  double-­‐spaced,  in  12-­‐point   font,  with  one-­‐inch  margins.    If it contains less than four and a half pages of writing, your grade will almost certainly suffer.      If  it includes more than  six pages of writing,  I reserve the right to base your  grade  only on the first six pages.         Additions  –  It’s  important  to  consider  these  but  don’t  include  them  in  calculating  your  five   pages:     a  REQUIRED  bibliography  that  lists  the  sources  you  cite  in  exactly  the  manner  they   appear  in  the  course  bibliography  (on  the  website  under  Syllabus  and  Course   Documents);  your  bibliography  should  NOT  include  sources  you’ve  consulted  but  not   cited     numbered  notes  -­‐-­‐  these  are  sometimes  called  “footnotes”  but  if  you  choose  to  use   them,  you  should  insert  them  as  “endnotes,”    i.e.  between  the  end  of  your    paper  and   the  bibliography      acknowledgments -­‐-­‐  if  talking  about  your  paper  with  other  people  has  helped  you   write  it,  you  should  thank  them  for  their  help  in  your  first  endnote       pictures  -­‐-­‐  you’re  welcome  to  include  any  you  consider  relevant,  either  in  the  body  of   the  paper  or  between  the  end  of  the  paper  (and  any  endnotes)  and  the  bibliography;  for   each  picture  you  include,  provide  a  caption  that  includes  information  about  the  source      
         Make an argument  -­‐-­‐ Develop your own,  well-­‐reasoned argument backed by carefully selected evidence.    Don’t provide a  “book report” that simply summarizes what others have written and don’t just assert your own opinion or feelings.    Imagine yourself trying to make a persuasive case to  a  fellow  student who doesn’t know much about the subject matter of our course.    


Write  what  you  really  think  –  Don’t  try  write  something  that  matches  where  you  think  I  stand.    I   give  high  grades  for  arguments  that  are  well  constructed  and  low  grades  for  ones  aren’t   regardless  of  where  people  position  themselves  along  the  spectrum  of  views  we’re  considering.    

  Cite  your  sources  -­‐-­‐  Scholars  in  Global  Studies  use  several  equally  acceptable  ways  of  citing   written  sources.    In  your  papers  for  this  course,  after  a  direct  quote  or  summary,  you  should  put   in  parentheses  in  your  text  the  name  of  the  author,  the  year  of  publication  of  the  edition  of  the   text  you  are  referencing,  and,  when  appropriate,  the  page  number  or  numbers  –  e.g.  (Ross   2013:  14-­‐15).      People  often  leave  out  the  year  but  this  is  important  so  please  include  it.    If  there   are  sources  that  you  cannot  cite  in  this  way  (e.g.  information  encountered  on  the  web  or  help   provided  by  people  you  have  talked  with),  use  endnotes  to  identify  them
