Geography and globalization in apple's iphone 6 and how it effects you, me and the world

Geography and globalization effect where, how, and why people live in certain areas.

Globalization:

the development of an increasingly integrated global economy marked especially by free trade, free flow of capital, and the tapping of cheaper foreign labor markets.

WHY DO PEOPLE LIVE WHERE THEY DO?

Where apple products are produced and why

Apple products are produced in Mongolia, China, Korea, and Taiwan. They chose these countries to produce items because 1. its cheaper but also because the geography of these places. They are by the water for easy access to the supplies, and highly populated areas for faster production speed.

They design and develope all apple products in the USA

Next they outsource the designs to China, Asia, and Europe

Manufacturing takes place in china because it is cheaper

Everything is stored in warehousing until giving the command to ship to other supply stores

Problems with globalization

Some of the biggest problems with globalization are, Pollution, Loss in jobs to machines, and over working people that get very little pay.

A Solution to fix these problems

In order to get rid of these problems, I have decided that all transportation should run off of electricity. That we should also produce more jobs for humans instead of machines, and create higher wages for those who work 15 hours a day in a sweatshop.
