I suggest Emily avoids writing about economics and social issues in future as she seems to have little understanding of the world outside her little liberal bullble.

The Effects Of Globalization Are Overwhelmingly Positive”
Are they? I wonder if a factory worker in Bangladesh or Nigeria, working in conditions of virtual slavery for 35cents an hour to make the training shoes or sweat shirts hipster in New York and LA buy for $100 would agree?
I wonder if the unemployed who were once factory workers in the rust belt would agree as they watch shiny new cars made from Indian or Korean steel would agree?

I wonder if the British fishererman would agree as his boat stands idle in a small Scottish port, because the fishing grounds his family and their community had worked and sustained for generations are plundered by European factory ships using destructive methods that were illegal in British waters until EU law superseded British law?
However, I’m sure the billionaire Silicon Valley entrepreneur or the ‘million dollar bonus’ investment banker would agree as he takes advantage of his “double Irish Dutch sandwich” arrangement to offshore profits to a tax jurisdiction that levies 0% on corporate profits. If you doubt me on this ask the chief finance officers of Amazon and Alpabet.)

Globalisation benefits only ‘overwhelmingly positive for the rich and corporate businesses. Anyone who doesn’t understand that is a fool. And as the old saying goes, a fool and his money are soon parted. Which is why there are so many poor people — they keep falling for the garbage this article proposes.
