Globalization is not simply about opening up the economy; or handing over everything to the private sector. It is taking place at various levels-it is integrating economics: it is changing the face of families; it is universalizing notions of women’s equality, environment, education: and it is changing the role of governments.

It is a fundamental mistake to believe that globalization means only economics liberalization. Globalization is about restructuring of society and the way we live.

It has its downside; it is uneven, fragmented and is still dominated by the west. At another level, it has contributed to the rise of fundamentalism, as people reacted, often violently and irrationally, to what they perceived as a threat to their traditions form globalization.

But all this is no reason for rejecting it. In fact, the world does not have any options. Like it or not, globalization has come to stay and there is no running away from it. The thing is to endure it, adapt it to our needs, and learn to live with it. And the world religions can provide useful guidance in this.
