  1. 1. gg Globalization and it’s impact on Pakistan
  2. 2. Question : What is the truest definition of Globalization ? Answer : Princess Diana's death . Question : How come ? Answer : An English princess with an Egyptian boyfriend crashes in a French tunnel, driving a German car with a Dutch engine, driven by a Belgian who was drunk on Scottish whisky: followed closely by Italian PaparazzI's in Japanese motorcycles; treated by an American doctor, using Brazilian medicines. And moreover this is sent to you by a Indian, using American (Bill Gates') technology, and you're probably reading this on your computer, that use Taiwanese chips, and a Korean monitor, assembled by Bangladeshi workers in a Singapore plant, transported by Pakistan lorry-drivers, hijacked by Indonesians, unloaded by Sicilian longshoremen, and trucked to you by Mexican illegal's..... That, my friend, is "" Globalization ""
  3. 3. Globalization can be described as a process by which the people of the world are unified into a single society. This process is a combination of economic, ecological, technological, socio cultural and political forces. — Markus Gattol • A process which strengthens the links between people, communities and economics of the world. • The greatest challenge faced by globalization is the fight against poverty.

Ensures specialization takes place in areas of comparative advantage. 4. For labor abundant economies this means increased employment as well as growth.

IMPACT OF WTO ON PAKISTAN • Pakistan joined WTO in 1995 when the organization came into being. • WTO negates anything which blocks the way of free movement of goods and services from one market to another on a basic assumption of improving the human lifestyle. • It provides special preferential treatment to developing countries like Pakistan by giving them more time and flexibility to adjust to the global trade liberalization system • Influential trade relations with other countries • Helps Pakistan develop an indigenous model of economic development based on local stakeholders.

  16. 16. IMF AND PAKISTAN The IMF works to foster global growth and economic stability. It provides policy advice and financing to members in economic difficulties and also works with developing nations to help them achieve macroeconomic stability and reduce poverty. SOURCE: http://www.imf.org/external/about/overview.htm • Pakistan became member of International Monetary Fund in 1950 • First loan was borrowed in 1958, amounting to USD 25 million • In a 20 year span, from 1958 -1979, Pakistan has been granted a total amount of USD 460 million in IMF packages.
  17. 17. IMF LOAN 2013 • IMF agreed to lend Pakistan an amount of USD 5.3 Billion (originally asked for USD 7.2 Billion) under the Extended Fund Facility (EFF) to boost Pakistan’s FX reserves and to help the economy • Urgency of the loan demonstrated the precarious situation of FX reserves especially when the State Bank of Pakistan had almost USD 6.25 Billion left in foreign reserves, an amount that couldn’t even cover six weeks of imports
  18. 18. • The Asian Development Bank has estimated that Pakistan will need an amount in the range of USD 6 Billion to USD 9 Billion to meet its obligations. • IMF’s EFF program comes with conditions, the government would have to reduce subsidies, particularly in the power sector which would result in higher bills. Therefore, development expenditure would have to be cut down.
  19. 19. RECOMMENDATIONS • STOP this culture and practice of “BORROW AND WASTE”! • Instead borrow when needed only and invest the borrowed money so that the return can be paid back as debt. • Expand the tax base by bringing in agriculture, services and evaders into the tax net • Promote private investments • Promote an environment that is conducive to attract donor funding in sectors such as education, health, social development and research and technology

  23. 23. RECOMMENDATIONS • Encourage foreign investment • Free trade, and trade barriers removed • Quality and quantity of the exports promoted • Population kept at the optimum level • Increase health expenditure
  24. 24. POSITIVE EFFECTS OF GLOBALIZATION Increased Standard of Living Access to New Markets Increased Competition Investment and Capital Flows Spread of Technical Know-How Spread of Culture Spread of Education Legal and Ethical Effects
  25. 25. NEGATIVE EFFECTS/CRITICISM ON GLOBALIZATION . Weaker countries loose their culture. Counties become more dependent on each other. That is why economic crisis move from one country to other countries very fast. become poorer.  More powerful countries dictate their "rules of game" for others.  Growth of international crime.  Countries are not able to control financial flows and migration. Companies from developed countries move their business to developing countries with less salaries.

  26. 26. Globalization And Its Discontents Joseph Stiglitz
  27. 27. • One of the most celebrated dissenters of globalization. • Chief Economist of the World Bank till Jan 2000. • Nobel Prize in Economics in 2001. • Chairman of Clinton’s Council of Economic Advisors. • Currently teaching at the Columbia University. • Stiglitz says: The average European cow gets a subsidy of £1.20 a day, more than what is earned by half the people in the developing world. For much of that world, globalization seems like a pact with the devil.
  28. 28. THE BITTER TRUTH!
  29. 29. What is the phenomenon of Globalization? • Closer integration of countries & peoples of the world that has been brought about by the enormous reduction of costs of transportation and communication, and the breaking down of artificial barriers to the flow of goods, services, knowledge and people across borders • Creation of new institutions working across borders • Three main institutions govern globalization: IMF, World Bank and WTO
  30. 30. The Promise of Global Institutions Globalization has helped: • Countries grow faster by opening up to international trade • Reduce the sense of isolation • Millions by bringing them foreign aid benefits Then, why has globalization become so controversial?
  31. 31. The Promise of Global Institutions (Cont.) • Growing divide between haves and have-nots has left increasing numbers in the Third World in dire poverty • Neither has globalization succeeded in ensuring stability • Western countries have pushed poorer countries to eliminate trade barriers • Environment has been destroyed
  32. 32. The Promise of Global Institutions (Cont.) • IMF was founded on the belief that there was a need for collective action at the global level for economic stability • IMF is a public institution established with money provided by taxpayers around the world • Major developed countries run the show, with only the USA having effective veto
  33. 33. BUT IMF FAILED! • The IMF has failed in its mission of promoting global instability; has also been unsuccessful in guiding transition of countries from communism to a market economy • Jobs have been systematically destroyed before countries’ industrial & agricultural sectors were able to grow strong and create new jobs • Maintaining tight monetary policies has led to interest rates that would make job creation impossible • Those who lost jobs were forced into poverty
  34. 34. LPG – Liberalization, Privatization, Globalization (Freedom to choose) • LPG surely has the power to do a lot of good. But at what cost? • Pursuing LPG at an alarming rate defeats the very purpose of developing the countries. • Many LPG policies become being an end in themselves instead of being the means to an end.
  35. 35. Freedom to choose? • U.S – the prosecutor, the judge and the jury. • Studies on various countries prove that steps laid out by IMF also did not guarantee progress. (Failures – Bolivia, Argentina, East Asia. Success - Chile) • Premature liberalization results in increased instability. The costs of such instability is, disproportionately, borne by the poor
  36. 36. “If globalization continues to be conducted in the way it has been in the past, globalization will not only succeed in not promoting development but will continue to create poverty and instability. Without reforms, the backlash that has already started will mount and discontent with globalization would grow.” ~ Joseph Stiglitz, Globalization and its discontents Nobel Laureate in Economics 2001, former Chief Economist at the World Bank.
