In the wake of the financial market crash, globalisation is under threat. A number of heads of state have started making protectionist noises. A slow-down in economic activity is likely to reduce trade.
Furthermore, as some perceive international capital flows as one of the causes of problems in financial markets, there is pressure for greater regulation of capital flows and of the financial sector.
Should the events in financial markets lead us to put the brakes on globalisation? How should economists make the case for free international markets in the current climate?
What would be the implications of greater protectionism and reduced international capital and labour flows?
