NATO’s War in afghanistan and its impact on globalisation and security

The War in Afghanistan has been subject to a lot of debates. This paper gives an insight of NATO’s role in this war and why it is important for globalisation and security on a global scale. Prominence is given to Obama’s new strategy in this region, a plan which might just turn the tides of an otherwise quite an unsuccessful war for the West. Modern wars are not won solely through the military. As the War in Afghanistan proves, the people’s hearts and minds must also be won.

About globalisation

Globalisation is the integration of markets through trade openness; giving countries greater access to newer technology and institutions and is said to eventually lead to price convergence. (Crafts, 2004). Many argue over what the actual consequences of globalisation are. Some say it leads to economic convergence others say it leads to economic divergence. In either scenario, it is still hard to say that globalisation is good for everyone, as there are winners and losers in each scenario.

One aspect of globalisation commonly argued is that it will help lead to global convergence where less economically developed countries will converge to levels seen by better economically developed countries; this convergence is argued to reduce overall global inequality. (Baumol, 1994). As these poorer countries increase their accumulation of new capital, they should be able to catch up and converge with richer countries. (Crafts, 2004). However, globalisation doesn’t benefit everyone the same, for example Baumol elaborates on the “advantage of backwardness.” Less developed countries are able to implement newer technology and therefore can grow at faster rates than already developed countries. This shows that globalisation is better for less economically developed countries and that richer countries will grow at slower rates. (Baumol, 1994). However, it is important to note that it appears that convergence is conditional which means that not all countries catch up and it is conditional on certain factors; such as high education levels, openness to trade, high investment levels, and political stability. Countries that have these factors are said to be a part of the “convergence club.” Again, this shows that globalisation doesn’t help everyone the same and in fact it might lead to global divergence and increased global inequality between countries that are in the club and those who are not. (Baumol, 1994). Even though membership to the club is expanding as more and more countries join by meeting the conditions, less economically developed countries seem to be the ones that can’t join the club and therefore fall even more behind. (Baumol, 1994).
Not all countries benefit from openness to trade. As trade occurs countries will tend to trade in what they have a comparative advantage in, however

Prebisch and Singer argue that countries who have their advantage in primary resources might be negatively affected. (Crafts, 2004). Prebisch says countries focusing on agricultural goods tend to underperform those who focus on manufacturing, this again might lead to overall divergence and increasing inequality. (Crafts, 2004). He argues that countries might need to implement protectionist measures such as tariffs for a while, to be able to set up a reliable manufacturing sector or to prevent negative price convergence, however given globalisation, this can’t be done without the possible consequence of retaliation leading to possible trade wars. (Crafts, 2004).

However, setting aside countries not in the convergence club, convergence doesn’t benefit everyone in the club either. As globalisation leads to factor price convergence, meaning some will experience price increasing, others price decreasing, this is the same for wage convergence. (Williamson, 1997). This can lead to increased income inequality within these countries. Essentially although international equality might decrease, intranational inequality might increase. Due to the increased migration from globalisation the supply of unskilled workers will increase (as migrants tend to be unskilled). This lowers unskilled wages relative to skilled wages, increasing the income gap. (Williamson, 1997).

In conclusion, although some aspects of globalisation seem to be beneficial; such as convergence allowing poorer countries to increase their growth rates quickly. It is very clear that these benefits aren’t extended to everyone and that these benefits aren’t distributed equally, possibly leaving some relatively worse off.
