Appreciate if you could assist me to interpret the difference of "globalization of nothing" and  "globalization is nothing". 

The Globalization of Nothing, January 2007,DOI: 10.1353/sais.2003.0053

Hi, Joshua,

"Globalization is nothing" would be a sentence denying either the existence or the importance of globalization.

"Globalization of nothing" is phrase whose meaning is specified in the article you seem to be referring to:

The grammatical meaning of "the globalization of nothing" is specified in the first paragraph with the phrase "the spread of nothing throughout the world."
