ABSTRACT
The article refers to the rhetoric in the government's "Scottish Economic Report" and focuses on the political aspects of globalization in Dundee, Scotland. The issue of economic globalization or the interdependence of countries in terms of trade, capital and labor flows is discussed. The 19th- and 20th-century economic history of Dundee, which is related to journalism, jute, and jam, is noted. Multilateral trade patterns, the mass migration of Irish workers into Dundee, the economic welfare of the working class person, and the influence of the First World War on deglobalization are mentioned.
