Study highlights untapped potential of globalization

Free trade advocates say globalization is the solution to the world’s problems. Critics say it’s the root of all evil. But has the process of economic integration really progressed far enough to be either? Globalization is not as advanced as most people believe. That’s according to the first Global Connectedness Index (GCI), commissioned by German-based global logistics group DHL. The study, conducted by renowned economist Pankaj Ghemawat from the IESE Business School in Barcelona, analyzed flows of information, capital and people on a detailed country-by-country basis. It found that further economic integration could still generate global gross domestic product gains of 5 percent or more – the equivalent of trillions of euros.
