Globalization does not automatically entail a global, unregulated “free market.” The precepts of globalization do not always coincide with those of an open economic system that ranks some countries above others. It could be within the context of social value, trade under particular nations’ regulatory practices, or a number of other inter-relational scenarios not outlined within the argument here. Additionally, a global free market does not necessarily mean a “race to the bottom” in social values - it depends on what a particular countries seems as most important to its citizens. It could keep regulatory practices in place while engaging in free trade on a global scale. The concept that globalization will inevitably lead to a race to the bottom is illogical.
