ABSTRACT
Globalization--the increased integration of national economies--has become a blanket term covering a number of facts and fictions. What are the facts? First, it can be argued that in important respects the world is no more globalized than in the 19th century. Second, economic integration is much more pervasive on a regional than global basis. Third, poor countries as well as rich ones benefit from globalization. Fourth, localization is more pervasive than standard measures would suggest.
