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. ^^
I think it is well established that the only reason aliens come to earth is to slice up cows and examine inside peoples' bottoms. Unless you are a cow or suffer haemerrhoids I don't think there is anything to worry about from aliens. - keithprosser
