“Globalization is commonly described as the processes and forces leading to an ever-decreasing capacity of the nation state to govern within its territorial boundaries” (Levi-Farr & Vigoda-Gadot, 2004). Even though world trade is larger than ever before, national living standards vary according culture, the wealth of the state (nation), and domestic factors. The study of globalization requires a holistic approach and must be analyzed from all angles.

Assignment 2: Debate It Powerpoint Presentation
Most people perceive international public administration to be a set of state structures, institutions, and processes. Opponents of globalization argue that it weakens states, making it difficult for them to sustain social welfare and environmental policies, and create fiscal redistributive initiatives.
According to James Bovard, a libertarian author who focuses on writing about government, proponents and businesses seeking to expand a broad claim there is little or no evidence of national governments’ decline. Congress, along with many policy strategists, seem to think that whatever the effects of globalization on governments, they are likely to be beneficial for long-term economic growth (Bovard, 1987).
Analyze the claims laid out in this controversy, and try to argue the strongest case you can in favor of the view(s) you find most convincing.
