Stephen Craycroft Dr. Avner Chua Essay In the article A World on the Edge (2002) , Amy Chua addresses the topic of globalization and its effects on developing nations. Chua, a Yale Law School Professor, lost her aunt to ethnic violence which most likely led her to compose this essay. She argues that when you pair free market economy and democracy in young, developing countries with a “market dominant minority,” the combination increases tensions between the economic groups, leading to violence. This paper will delve into Chua’s project and argument, and how it affects everyone around the globe. Chua’s main argument is that ethnic violence and hatred are aided and enflamed when one wealthy ethnic group, otherwise known as the market dominant minority, gains control of a nation’s economy. She brings up this topic in her essay, “It lies in the relationship—increasingly, the explosive collision--- among the three most powerful forces operating in the world today: markets, democracy, and ethnic hatred. There exists today a phenomenon---pervasive outside the west, yet rarely acknowledged, indeed often viewed as taboo---that turns free-market democracy into an engine of ethnic conflagration” (Chua 105).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
