Human life is not a mere search for survival. It is also a struggle for equality and economic justice. Environment and health, production of farm and industrial goods, labor supply, and marketing of goods and services are the controlling factors of economic development. None of these, however, can be actualized without peace. Peace is a crucial condition of economic development. Without peace, economic justice cannot become a reality. On the other hand, there is no peace without economic development. Peace and development thus go hand-in-hand. Our modern economy is characterized by the predominant role of neo-liberal policies and global economic trends. Can modern neo-liberalism provide humanity with peace and economic justice? How does globalization affect human conditions all across the world?
