Globalization Was Slowed But Not Derailed by Sept. 11, Say Reuters Forum Panelists

Terrorism has caused globalization to slow but not derail, according to panelists at the second of seven Reuters Forums held Feb. 13 at the Graduate School of Journalism. Since Sept. 11, the cost of doing business, for example shipping, insurance and security cost, has increased. Re-evaluating the current "US-centric" model of globalization is suggested. Sensitivity of global trade and investment goals to basic labor and environmental rights is also recommended. Panelists included Moderator Richard Longworth, Chicago Tribune; Stephen Roach, Morgan Stanley; Sarah Anderson, Institute for Policy Studies; and Warren Bass, Council on Foreign Relations.
