Abstract: One would expect that globalisation, which has brought humans in close proximity to each other, is valuable for human development. But, on the contrary, very often the opposite happens, in that it has the effect that the few capitalists continue to thrive as they have more people whom they can exploit. Globalisation is not only economic in its nature, but its roots are capitalistic. Where the purpose is profit at all costs, even at the cost of humans themselves, very little room remains for the promotion of the human being. In this exposition, I invite the reader to focus on what is meant by human development, with all its implications, and examine whether and how globalisation can be a threat to this development.
