Competition and globalisation in economic sciences. Selected aspects

Abstract:

The aim of the paper is to identify and assess the role of economic sciences in
relation to competitiveness and globalisation, two basic concepts of the market economy.
This role is to explain and interpret their essence but also to determine their potential
practical usefulness, primarily in the context of economic policy development.
The considerations mentioned in the article are, as a rule, of a general and universal
nature and do not relate especially to any particular countries or groups of countries.
The basic method employed in the study is a critical analysis of the subject literature.
The paper consists of an introduction, three sections, and conclusions. Section 1 contains
a basic discussion of the subject of economic sciences and describes their four
features: cognitive productivity, practical usefulness, dismal nature and beauty. Section
2 presents the contribution of economic sciences to understanding and interpreting
the phenomenon of competitiveness. Section 3 focuses on defining and elucidating the
idea of globalisation and an examination of its most important aspects. The paper ends
with eight conclusions formulated on the basis of this discussion.
