Globalization

Globalization is the process of international integration arising from the interchange of world views, products, ideas and other aspects of culture
  1. Cultural globalization: the transmission of ideas, meanings and values around the world to extend and intensify social relations.

  2. Economic globalization: the increasing economic integration and interdependence of national, regional and local economies across the world through an intensification of cross-border movement of goods, services, technologies and capital.

  3. Environmental Globalization: the influence of geographical features, the trade of natural resources, and the effect of industry on the surrounding areas.

  4. Technological Globalization: the sharing of technology around the world and furthering the capacity of ideas around the world.

Problems With Globalization

Environmental: pollution to the environment is a downside to globalization as many different places are letting out toxic fumes deadly to the environment.

Economic: the trading around the world makes countries more dependent on importing products which can benefit, but it can hurt as lose of jobs in the country appear

Technological: too much technology provides too much time taken away that can be focused on other aspects in a person's life.

Cultural: it mixes the cultures so much that some aspects of the cultures are forgotten and people are not able to connect deeply with their past to become culturally fulfilled.

Problem Solver:

If the major powers around the world pooled their resources and collaborated then they would be able to further technology to help heal the pollutes world, create an economic boom, and learn the aspects of other cultures that can be carried on.

Pros and Cons

Pros: economic benefits, more equal labor market, free trade, spread of culture, technological advancement

cons :outsourcing jobs, competition with other countries, workers leave for better opportunities, taxation, loss of culture to other parts of cultures

How it affects me

Globalization affects me everyday because I meet people who have migrated from other countries and spread their culture here, I use technology that has been made I other countries that were imported here, and the economics are improved for the country and world whenever I choose to buy something that effects everyone who was part of it.
