La globalización ha producido un fuerte impacto cuyos múltiples efectos se aprecian en todos los órdenes de la actividad económica, social y política. La literatura contemporánea da cuenta de ello a través de una abundante producción, generalmente controversial puesto que suele orientarse a señalar presuntos beneficios exclusivamente o bien se concentra en formular severas críticas. La globalización es vista como una bendición por la que hay que estar agradecido o como una maldición de los tiempos modernos que azota a la humanidad como un implacable castigo de Dios. La receta para hacerle frente consiste, pues, según cada enfoque, en aprovechar sus preciosas ventajas o en asumir resignadamente sus inevitables consecuencias.
