Environment, Technology, Culture, Economy
Six Word Claim. Globalization where, why, how we live.
This claim is explained through the entire page.
Environment and Geography
Environmental Globalization effects where people live because of the climate, terrain, and natural resources. People live where it is the most comfortable. People go where natural resources are and where the terrain is best for shipping and transportation of products. People also live around those ports because of the good climate and there are many factories there.
My product requires steel. Steel is made from Iron ore and is mined in China. The iron ore needs to be refined. Most of the world's iron comes from China. People must go to China and the locations of the mines. The map shows that all of the steel mills and ore ports are on the coast. This shows that environment and geography effects people and where we live. Many people live around all of these ports.
Economic Globalization: The economy effects where people live. People will live around where ports are or where there is a lot of business. People need the economy and the jobs that are provided in these ports or area of natural resources.
My product effects the economy of china. It creates a demand for steel and a demand for iron ore to be refined. It also creates business for the container ships that will transport the product to a manufacturing plant in El Salvador. My product may also take business from smaller companies trying to produce this knife.
My knife makes people share ideas and have to communicate between many countries and businesses. People have to communicate between the iron mines in China and the manufacturing plant in El Salvador.
How Globalization is Connected
How Globalization Effects Me.
Problems and Solutions Created by Globalization.
Globalization can effect me and create issues with finding jobs in our town. With globalization larger companies want to be in a populated area where there are people around to work and buy their product. In this area there is also good transportation from the product. This creates problems for me in a smaller town that doesn't have the access to jobs from a larger corporation. A possible solution is that you could work within your town in a small business that make and sell unique products to that town that would help and be funded by the tourist industry. The town could also use that to their advantage and create other jobs and make a larger town. Although Globalization causes problems it can also create solutions to those problems.
