I am soon starting a real-life debate on economic globalization. The resolution is: "Economic Globalization Decreases Worldwide Poverty." This is a topic with which I can learn more. So, I am asking for people to post ideas here backed up by statistics (so that I am not plagiarizing).

I don't have any stats that support this motion (though I do have data against it... which presumably isn't useful). I do know that the main areas of economic globalisation are:
-Interdependence of economies (Greek prime minister utters one sentence, world economy goes down)
-Integration of product markets
-Integration of capital markets
-Integration of labour markets
-Establishment of regional and global intergovernmental economic organisations (WTO, ASEAN, IMF, World Bank...)

so I guess each point should focus on one of these areas.

Also, 'poverty' should involve both getting people out of absolute poverty (in developing countries), and getting them out of relative poverty (in developed countries).

Hope that can help you narrow down your search. ^^
The thing is, I hate relativism. I hate relativism more than I hate everything else, excepting, maybe, fibreglass powerboats... What it overlooks, to put it briefly and crudely, is the fixed structure of human nature. - Jerry Fodor
