Globalization is the great economic and political force of our era. Behind it are: declining costs of communication and transport, the worldwide move towards a liberal market economy and the incorporation of billions of people into the world economy for the first time – argued Martin Wolf, Associate Editor & Chief Economics Commentator, Financial Times at the 2007  CASE Conference “Winds of Change: The Impact of Globalization on Europe and Asia”.
