2016 China’s contingencies and globalization

Abstract Will China be able to rebalance its economy, heavily tilted towards investment? Will China be able to increase the share of household consumption in GDP? Will China turn steeply growing social inequality around? Will urbanisation contribute to China’s rebalancing or will it add to the imbalances? Will China manage to bring pollution under control? Such variables determine whether China can move beyond the middle-income trap and also affect China’s external relations. China’s rebalancing is also a variable in global rebalancing. This is also an introduction to the special issue.

Will China be able to rebalance its economy, heavily tilted towards investment? Will it be able to increase the share of household consumption in GDP? Will it turn steeply growing social inequality around? Will urbanisation contribute to China’s rebalancing or will it add to the imbalances? Will China manage to bring pollution under control? Such variables will determine whether China can move beyond the middle-income trap and also affect its external relations. In addition, China’s rebalancing is a variable in global rebalancing. This article provides an introduction to the special issue.

2015 What happened to the Miracle Eight? Looking East in the twenty-first century, Canadian Journal of                    Development Studies 63, 3: 263-282, http://dx.doi.org/10.1080/02255189.2015.1069178  [PDF]

Abstract: All developing countries have been “looking East” since the rise of the Asian tigers, especially South Korea and Taiwan. The designation of the Southeast Asian economies as “tiger cubs” implies the question: can would-be tigers become tigers? Against the background of both oriental globalisation and China’s effect on the region, this article compares trends in Northeast and Southeast Asia in agriculture, industry and services. State and political institutions are part of the comparison. As the conclusion notes, the new imperative for sustainable and inclusive growth excludes simply retracing the tigers’ development path: political change, in both national and regional institutions, is needed for the reforms in land, fiscal and industrial policy that will permit Southeast Asia to escape the middle-income trap. 

2015 Goodbye Miracle Eight. Bangi, UKM Press [PDF]

Abstract: Manufacturing has become increasingly competitive worldwide and for developing countries the options for manufacturing exportled growth and industrial upgrading have significantly narrowed. Hence the era of the ‘Miracle Eight’ – which grouped middle-tier Southeast Asian countries with Northeast Asian tiger economies – has passed. Why were the opportunities for industrial development that existed in Southeast Asia not utilized effectively? The central question is the nature of political institutions in the region. Turning to wider dynamics, developments in Southeast Asia are also influenced by changing geoeconomic constellations. Shifting economic complementarities now increasingly involve Chinacentric value networks in East Asia. China’s lead in Asia is of a different character than Japan’s lead in the past. The next section asks whether ASEAN is becoming a manufacturing workshop of the world and what the implications are of this development. In closing, the paper looks at forward options for middle-tier Southeast Asian economies.

Abstract:  We have entered an era of multipolarity, but much thinking continues in unipolar terms, in terms of lumping concepts such as modernity and capitalism. In a multipolar era, thinking in plural terms is more relevant and appropriate, but runs counter to formidable pressures towards convergence that are built into the status quo and international institutions, and into macro theories in social science. Ideas of convergence upon the model of Anglo-American capitalism and liberal democracy are continuously rehearsed in mainstream media, as if the ‘rise of the rest’ is supposed to follow in the footsteps of the rise of the West. The major macro theories in sociology are clustered around the categories of modernity and capitalism. While macro theories are important in that they are part of the classical foundations, the flipside is that since their rise has correlated with the rise of Europe and the West they come with in-built centrism, a view from the West as the centre, a hegemonic view. This article discusses (1) oscillations towards and away from convergence in actual contemporary dynamics, (2) sociology of converg.

Abstract: This second response to comments on my article ‘What is Global studies?’ (Globalizations 10, 4, 2013) notes that the comments feature research agendas. These provide scaffolding for global studies but not of course a complete building. Among themes that need further attention are political economy and finance, the dimension of time and history, and the dynamics of twenty-first century globalization and the role of emerging economies.

Abstract: This discussion examines global studies and whether and how it differs from the earlier wave of globalization studies. Although treatments generally regard these as equivalent, studies of globalization are anchored in social science and humanities disciplines while global studies are, in principle, conceived on a different footing. We can distinguish two accounts of global studies: an empirical account, i.e. a description of actual existing global studies, and an analytical or programmatic account, which refers to what global studies can or should be for theoretical or other reasons. The first section of this paper discusses global knowledge as a database that exists independent of studies of globalization; the second section turns to studies of globalization; the third section concerns global studies as it actually exists; the fourth section offers a programmatic account of global studies. The concluding sections address cognitive problems of global thinking, in particular the challenges of multicentric and multilevel thinking.

Abstract: While US government agencies endorse and support the democratic potential of the internet and social media overseas, the criticisms of the WikiLeaks disclosures of US diplomatic cables reveal the bias in relation to transparency and democracy. This poses a wider problem of connectivity combined with hegemony. This paper discusses what the criticisms of the WikiLeaks disclosures reveal. After discussing the enthusiasm about ‘hyperconnectivity’, the paper turns to the WikiLeaks disclosures, and next spells out global ramifications of the leaked cables, the problems of transparency and hegemony, frictions between democracy and democratisation, and the role of banks blocking donations to WikiLeaks.

2012 Periodizing Globalization: Histories of Globalization, New Global Studies 6, 2: 1-25 (published

            online 7/30/2012) [PDF]

Abstract: The article outlines the analytics and criteria that inform periodizing globalization. It criticizes presentist and Eurocentric views on globalization, the contemporary view, the modernity view (1800 plus) or the capitalism view (1500 plus). It discusses approaches to world history and how globalization fits in. Understandings of globalization, such as multicentric and centrist perspectives, and units of analysis affect how timelines of globalization are established. Taking into account global history going back to the Bronze Age and oriental globalization, these require inserting the Greco-Roman world as part of globalization history. It concludes by outlining phases of globalization in the (very) longue durée.

            1-19 [PDF]

Abstract: The article argues that twenty-first century globalization is markedly different from twentieth century globalization and reviews the major changes. The discussion focuses on the porte´e of these changes for development policies and notes three trends: new industrializing countries in the global South have become drivers of the world economy; the agency of development shifts from metropolitan institutions to developing countries; and the pendulum swings from unfettered market forces to growing state coordination. The upshot of these changes is an era of growing development pluralism, with ramifications for international development cooperation. North –South relations, between industrialized and developing countries have long been of pivotal importance, but in the twenty- first century, the importance of North –South development cooperation is receding. At issue are two ruptures in the development field: the twenty-first century brings part of the developing world outside the grasp of Western institutions and the 2008 crisis brings slowdown and changing political economies in the West. The conclusion reflects on how twenty-first century trends hold up after the 2008 crisis, notes that the rise of emerging societies outlasts the crisis and argues that development pluralism is here to stay.

Abstract: This article discusses Eurocentric history, its focus on the Renaissance and modernity, which continues also in recent global history perspectives. Goody’s argument regarding renaissances in the plural situates Europe in the wider field of Eurasia and deeper in time, going back to the Bronze Age, characterized by plough agriculture, the use of animal traction and urban cultures. Goody’s perspective includes viewing renascences as accelerations and leaps in the circulation of information. Since it is always the trope of the modern that marks Eurocentric claims, unpacking modernity is central to scrutinizing this construction. Goody shows that Europe is a latecomer rather than a forerunner to major strands of modernity. A wider question this account poses is: if Renaissance in the singular produces modernity in the singular, do renaissances in the plural produce modernities in the plural?

Abstract: Modernities are a theme of our times. Recognizing that modernities are multiple and diverse and transcending ideal-type modernity and its Eurocentric legacy, acknowledges the multipolar realities of twenty-first century globalization and the ‘rise of the rest’. Real-existing modernities are mixed social formations in that they straddle past and present and import and translate styles and customs from other cultures. In addition, modernities are layered—some components are shared among all modern societies and make up transnational modernity while other components differ according to historical and cultural circumstances. The third section reflects on East Asia as an alternative modernity and sketches its main features. Leaving modernity as utopia behind, for a grounded modernity opens the possibility of coming to terms with the dilemmas that real modernities face.

Abstract: Like a giant oil tanker, the world is turning. New growth poles of the world economy have been emerging in the South and East. Globalization once belonged to the West and now the tables are turning. We have entered the era of the ‘rise of the rest’. Western media and politics of representation have celebrated the rise of the West for 200 years, how then do they represent the rise of the rest? The main trends are that the rise of the rest is ignored, or represented as a threat, or celebrated in business media as a triumph of the marketplace. Media echoing free market ideology have contributed to vast wealth polarization; representing the rise of the rest as a threat contributes to global political polarization; recycling the 9/11 complex produces cultural and political polarization; and overusing celebrity narratives contributes to existential polarization. These are the global divides discussed in this article. In the wake of the economic crisis of 2008 there have been marked changes in discourse and a new motif has taken shape: recruiting the rest to rescue the West.

2016 China’s contingencies and globalization
Abstract Will China be able to rebalance its economy, heavily tilted towards investment? Will China be able to increase the share of household consumption in GDP? Will China turn steeply growing social inequality around? Will urbanisation contribute to China’s rebalancing or will it add to the imbalances? Will China manage to bring pollution under control? Such variables determine whether China can move beyond the middle-income trap and also affect China’s external relations. China’s rebalancing is also a variable in global rebalancing. This is also an introduction to the special issue.
