    "If economic globalisation is inevitable, it should primarily serve humanity rather than the interests of trans-national corporations."

    Discuss.

    By serving corporations, globalization does serve humanity. They are not mutually exclusive at all.

    Seems sort of self-evident to me.

    One of the many questions on that silly test with a premise I don't buy into.

    Economic globalization is an inevitability.....No "if" about it.

    Therefore, the subsequent given dichotomy is false.

    Agreed. The guy who wrote this question must've had one too many Percocet tablets.

    The questions and answers are flawed IMO.

    Economic Globalisation should serve humanity the same way economic capitalism has...that is it should make us all way more wealthy than we were before it and it should also make the companies wealthy.

    I think it should benefit both equally, hence the flaw and my non-answer/non-vote.

    That whole poll was filled with flaws, i hope your posting all the questions :)

    The never ending quest for cheap labor won't do a whole lot for the American middle class (or what will be left of it).

    In fact, corporations aren't being "served." It is poor wording (though done so in a context to solicit a response from the Left).

    Countries sign treaties not to discriminate against businesses from other countries. By reducing protectionism and trade discrimination, globalization actually works against inefficient companies. So some corporations do better and others do worse.
