at its worst it was elites and special interests seeking new pastures of opportunity even when the overall benefits were in doubt But for the last three decades globalisation was undergirded by a set of meta-assumptions — part myth part possibility — all of which are now being contested Share This Article Related Article The idea behind globalisation was that it is possible to imagine a system of economic interdependencies which are structured in such a way that mitigated the zero sum aspects of global trade In an era that did produce some intra-country convergence notably through the rise of China the big beneficiary of the recent phase of globalisation without seemingly provoking major political backlash in advanced economies this assumption came to seem politically plausible Even after the 2009 financial crisis the inherited system of interdependence was strong enough to withstand calls for rolling back further liberalisation But the basic undercurrent of contemporary politics is that further globalisation is very much a zero sum game The stagnation of living standards in advanced economies has buttressed this argument though the proportion of blame that should fall on technology- and productivity-related factors or globalisation is a matter of debate But whatever the truth globalisation will be blamed This is in part because politicians find it hard to prepare their populations for the idea that continual growth may not be taken for granted It could be argued that the zero sum game construction was always a fantasy; it was an ideological mystification that allowed various policies to be enacted But in a way the paradoxical case for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) that it is about positioning some countries advantageously only gives the idea that globalisation is not about creating a zero sum game The inherited complexity of globalisation may make drastic disengagement difficult; but the political pressure to do so will increase One argument is that the growing inequalities within the advanced countries are behind the resentment against globalisation The scepticism of globalisation is really scepticism of the plutocracy and the privilege that it produced There is much to this argument But this argument also has its limits It assumes that anti-globalisation is a product of the revolt by the marginalised and dispossessed This story is probably more mixed In the United States it appears to have taken roots amongst the white working class the biggest losers in the recent phase of globalisation It would be unfair to place the blame for xenophobia on the doors of the working class; you suspect often the interests of the working class are used by establishments to express their own nativism But the rise of anti-immigrant sentiment right-wing parties and greater xenophobia cannot all be explained by inequality: Scandinavian social democracies are as much susceptible to right-wing backlash as the US; within Europe big successes like Poland are in its grip as much as economies that have done less well The discomforting thought is that the nationalist critique of globalisation is gaining ground Globalisation did make many societies more deeply multi-cultural But its proponents underestimated the political and cultural challenges to assimilation The fears associated with globalisation have turned to embracing ethnic chauvinism Some would argue this fear of ethnic chauvinism must not be generalised In the contemporary era of globalisation it has a specific target Islam In this view the rise of xenophobia and nativism is less a product of globalisation; it is more straightforwardly a clash of “ideologies” Islam has become the “other” of globalisation in ways that now deeply threaten the globalisation project But whether this shows the limits of Islam or the limits of liberal societies is a debatable question But this construction of Islam has contributed to putting under stress the fantasy of globalisation replacing exclusionary nationalism Globalisation also had a complex relationship to military power The fantasy of globalisation was to render territoriality less salient and to mitigate great-power military conflict Territory-based great-power tensions are back on the agenda From China to Turkey the temptation to use power to exercise influence is growing; the contest between assertion of ambition and pure economics is growing The US is also in a complex position In some ways globalisation had this paradoxical positioning for American nationalism At one level it is a projection of American success its ability to create Pax Americana Globalisation was an intelligent way of enhancing its pre-eminence and influence So for a powerful hegemon like the US it was easy to sustain the illusion of national power and globalisation both growing together Liberal internationalism was just a smarter nationalism But this was challenged from two directions On the one hand the ground realities of emerging multipolarity made sustaining that hegemony harder But also the disastrous intervention in Iraq the changes in global energy markets the lowered appetite for bearing the costs of war made sustained intervention in the Middle East difficult Barack Obama ran on a promise of that kind of disengagement Libya was a massive mistake not the least because it reduced options in Syria The Syrian crisis has had far-reaching domestic political reverberations in Europe Obama was caught in a “damned if he did and damned if he didn’t” bind But the net result is that in domestic politics American engagement with the external world is now seen as being undertaken from a position of weakness Hence the demand for a more “muscular” foreign policy is back Globalisation’s critics had a point that it was oversold was uneven in its effects and did not do enough for losers It is being felt by nations as a loss of control But at its best it was a hope of a non-zero sum world a faith in the possibilities of open societies and a hope that the prosaic demands of commerce will trump the more exalted passions of national grandeur As nationalism gains ground there is a real danger that nuanced debates on globalisation will be replaced by a more atavistic revolt against its possibilities The writer is president Centre for Policy Research Delhi and contributing editor ‘The Indian Express’ For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsThe Uri attack could be an inflection point for India its relationship with Pakistan and the geopolitical future of south Asia Or it could be just another deep cut inflicted by a rogue neighbour that enjoys provoking New Delhi secure in the knowledge that India shall remain forever trapped in the delusion of being a "great responsible power" that in reality can do little beyond spewing empty rhetoric followed by routine pusillanimity There is little doubt that whichever outfit may have fronted it the audacious terrorist strike on Sunday morning at the Indian Army headquarters in Uri — that claimed the lives of 17 soldiers and wounded another 19 — was carried out by the Pakistani deep state Initial reports emerging out of New Delhi confirm the suspicion Army’s director general of military operations (DGMO) Lt Gen Ranbir Singh was quoted as saying by Livemint that "all four killed were foreign terrorists and had some items with them which had Pakistani markings… Slain terrorists belong to Jaish-e-Mohammed Tanzeem (militant group) Four AK-47 rifles and four under-barrel grenade launchers along with a large number of other war-like stores were recovered from them" The Army Brigade camp which was attacked by militants in Uri Jammu and Kashmir PTI While Pakistani hand behind the terrorist attack isn’t surprising the timing of the offensive certainly is The act of war against Indian state comes at a time when heads of governments are scheduled to meet at the United Nations General Assembly starting on Monday At first glance Pakistan’s move to sponsor a terrorist attack on Indian soil when its Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is raising Kashmir issue at UN may appear counter-productive On the contrary it is a brilliant move Islamabad or more correctly the army apparatus in Rawalpindi is gambling on the well-considered possibility that the Uri attack will goad India into a knee-jerk response that it may then exploit to its advantage to go with its narrative of "Indian oppression in Kashmir" Given the fact that the West would surely try to defuse the tension between the nuclear neighbours would mean that India would be at the receiving end of global pressure to "show restraint" and "act responsibly"? called Pot Noodle, "The state BJP unit has proposed Pritam’s name as party nominee for Beed Lok Sabha bypoll, our history of references.
