(Extended Essay) M.A.
This essay surveys scholarly literature on the effects of globalization on developing countries with attention to poverty. I first present evidence suggesting that globalization benefits the developing countries and the poor. A second opinion argues against globalization, linking it to financial crises and negative effects on the agricultural sector. Finally, some authors find both positive and negative outcomes of globalizing. Overall, I conclude that globalization unambiguously benefits the poor only together with complementary pro-poor policies. This extended essay examines the impacts of identity theft surveying previous studies focusing on the social harm caused and suggests possible ways to protect personal information and prevent identity theft. The majority of the articles show that policy changes have a positive influence on identity theft, although sometimes not as significant as the policy makers expect. The proposal is that legislation that would treat consumer protection as a public good would be beneficial.
