ABSTRACT
The author examines an article by Erik Thorbecke and Machiko Nissanke on the effect of globalization on the poor in Latin America. The author argues that the paper dealt with the problem of studying a cross-disciplinary phenomenon by concentrating only on the economic aspects of globalization and reporting the results from several studies, which address a different economic aspect. He says that the authors of the paper handle the lack of counterfactuals by comparing Latin American countries with different trade intensity ratios. He also claims that they do not make an explicit statement of what they understand by globalization.
