PAD 540 Week 4 Assignment 2: Debate It Video
Most people perceive international public administration to be a set of state structures, institutions, and processes. Opponents of globalization argue that it weakens states, making it difficult for them to sustain social welfare and environmental policies, and create fiscal redistributive initiatives.
According to James Bovard, a libertarian author who focuses on writing about government, proponents and businesses seeking to expand abroad claim there is little or no evidence of national governments' decline. Congress, along with many policy strategists, seem to think that whatever the effects of globalization on governments, they are likely to be beneficial for long-term economic growth (Bovard, 1987).
Analyze the claims laid out in this controversy, and try to argue the strongest case you can in favor of the view(s) you find most convincing. In doing so, be sure to seriously consider the case that your oppoinents might make against your position, and why you would reject it. Use the Internet and / or Strayer databases to research evidence that supports your opinion. Determine your point of view on the issue, and support your position with information from at least three (3) reliable, relevant, peer-reviewed references (no more than one  used previously), published within the last five (5) years.
Use a tablet, smartphone, laptop, desktop, or traditional video recorder to create and record a one to three (1-3) minute video in which you:
1. Provide a brief description of the issue.
2. Present evidence that supports both sides of the argument.
3. Project your voice in order to clearly convey your ideas.
4. Present in a professional manner.
5. Use technology (e.g., audio quality, video quality, naming conventions) to convey ideas.
6. Use voice inflection and proper grammar.
7. Provide at least three (3) reliable, relevant, peer-reviewed references (no more than one  used previously), published within the last five (5) years at the end of your video.
