Geography & Globalization
By: Christina Murray
What is geography and globalization?
Why and how people live today.
Globalization is the social collaboration between countries sharing goods and ideas. These can be both positive in the case of technological advances, or negative in the case of human trafficking. Geography is why people live where they do based on needs and wants. This can be both positive in the case of living in a place of an abundant resource with plenty to share and negative in the case of a place with a very popular yet limited resource.
How it's made
4 Categories of Globalization
Economics: Crayola colored pencils are sold to people around the world, primarily in the US. In the US the colored pencils are sold for about $2.99 for a 12 pack, $5.99 for a 24 pack, ect.
Environment: Crayola Colored Pencils are made from reforested wood grown on tree farms.
Technology: Crayola Colored pencils are created from lumber using several stages conducted by machinery that cut, measure, carve, shape, and paint the pencils.
How Geography and Globalization Affect Me
Geography and globalization allow me to live the way I do now. Geography affects me because I chose to live in New Hampshire because of the moderate climate. Also there are plenty of bodies of water near me for recreation, fishing, and water source for the community to drink. Globalization affects me because it allows me to have the clothes I wear, the computer I use, the phone I use, ect. It allows me to have more opportunities than I would have without it.
Globalization can be both positive and negative. In my life globalization can be good because it allows me different opportunities and gives me technology that I use on a daily basis. It can also be bad because of spreading diseases like the Zika virus which is rapidly spreading around the world.
