Abstract

The globalisation is supposed to reduce regional inequality, poverty and promote sustainability and improve overall human quality. Several studies have provided contradictory results in regard to the effect of globalisation, either in case of growth of GDP, or reduction in inequality and poverty or maintaining environmental sustainability and finally the human development. This paper attempts to examine the pattern of globalisation across the countries along with its effect on the growth of GDP as well as human development index. The term globalization is becoming more and more meaningful as can be seen from the interrelations of these variables. Also globalization has been seen to have effect on the contemporary and very recent future values only.

Keywords: Globalisation, Globalisation index, GDP growth, Human Development index, Panel data
