Abstract

This paper illustrates the role culture plays within the so-called “globalization” processes of financial markets and of the liberalization of the exchange of goods and services. The author discusses the philosophical base of globalization to propose the importance in recognizing how market economies can take place in different cultural contexts. He contends that capital is not an expression of a culture to which it is intrinsically linked. The discussion explains the cultural consequences of economic globalization, such as colonial and cosmopolitan Universalism and the role media plays within this context.
