International Seminar on
THE IMPACT OF GLOBALIZATION ON ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT
Project co-ordinator: Dr. Leo Gabriel (Boltzmann Institute for Latin America)
Date: Tuesday, 13 February 1997, 2.30 p.m. - 5.30 p.m.
What are the perspectives for the redistribution of wealth in a world economy in which global transfers of goods and capital determine the political agendas of the nations? Does the illimited growth of an integrated world market represent the greatest challenge or the biggest defeat for the idea of economic and social development in the South? How can the poor countries with their economic limitations come to grips in a world without political boundaries?
