In his first novel, David McDonald — an economics student at The University Of Guelph and founder of The Global Millennial — dives into the globalization discussion with a particular focus on how economic theory and history can help answer one pressing question: Has globalization been helpful or detrimental to the sustainability of our planet, and advancement of our species?McDonald begins the discussion with a brief, yet detailed summary of the history of global trade. Although it is difficult to say when true globalization began, he argues that the framework for international trade was established much sooner than some may expect. A majority of the book focuses on globalization in the 21st century. McDonald discusses the impact of internationalism on various regions and their subsequent powers; Asia, Europe, Africa, and North America are all discussed in detail throughout the book with reference to many notable events that continue to be important points of discussion to this day. Brexit, climate change, the financial collapse of 2008, China’s role in the global economy, and the threat of nuclear war are all notable topics strung throughout this work.Authentic, controversial, and rigorously documented, A Global Convergence delivers an indispensable discernment of today’s central issues in a way that anyone can enjoy.
