Globalization reduces poverty and brings up the life expectancy. According to the World Bank, in 1994 India's poverty headcount ratio was 45.3% and in 2012 it has gotten two times better. Another improvement is Ethiopia. the World Bank headcount poverty was 45.5% in 1995 a study in 2011 shows it has gone down 29.6%. Globalization has helped other countries build up their economy because once they have a factory that originated from a US company they can give jobs to people in the different country.
That this was also the decade in which globalization came into full swing is more than a minor inconvenience for its advocates” (Rodrick). If globalization is supposed to present an advantage to developing countries, why have there been so many setbacks? Indeed, both sides will have its winners and losers regardless of which side of the development coin they live on, but for the most part globalization has lifted millions out of poverty, improved the standard of living, and increased life expectancy rates all while keeping developed nations relatively competitive to their developing counterparts. Globalization’s value is that it seeks to create an economic equilibrium in the world, where parties are free from barriers and can benefit from one another through a more efficient allocation of resources. This allows all participating nations to contribute to an integrated economy and where all nations willing to embrace globalization have the potential to benefit. Regardless, the path to successful integration to the global economy has not always been easy. There is contention towards globalization as some argue that it is detrimental to developed nations, while many developing countries that were forced to hastily open up their markets and integrate failed. However, if implemented properly, globalization has proven that it can benefit all parties involved and that the potential gains outweigh the losses.
Some research said that the global economy is a way that can easy to affect to other countries when a country has an economic problem. However, the global economic crisis usually is based on an influential country that has the economic problem and affects the countries who besides this country in a short time. Finally, these countries affect the whole world of the economy, this is the globalization of economic crisis. In another hand, the benefits of globalization in economics is more than the negative of globalization. Globalization can make people have a life that is high quality. Because of the globalization, some of the counties lower the level of other countries’ business to come into native
There is no doubt to reveals the fact that globalization has benefited more than developing countries. Globalization is misused or over used. The difference between rich and poor continued from the beginning of time. Nearly thousand years ago people use barter system to fill the gap between demands and supply. Due to lack of technology and lack of communication system most people sell and buy products within the boundary of a country but today recent era is a totally different era. Global currency, global language and advance technology provide a platform to stay connected all over the world.
In theory, globalization should help contribute to the equality of the global economy. Yet this is not the case in reality. Globalization contributes to unsustainable prosperity for a very small percentage of the world’s population. For those in developing countries, it is especially unsustainable. The resources in these areas are consumed at an unstable rate and the environment given very little consideration. The workers are treated as if they are expendable. The smaller economies of these countries are vastly taken advantage of. For these reasons, globalization contributes to sustainable prosperity to a small extent.
Globalization over the past twenty has become an issue in many countries. This industrialization of second and third world countries by Western Civilization creates many opportunities for the inhabitants. Not only does it expand trading markets, but also promotes productivity and efficiency; thus improving the country and integrating it into the industrial world. This process not only benefits third world counties, but also industrialized nations by allowing them to export goods to the developing world and increase their profit margin.
We all live in a globalized world; due to technologies being rapidly made it has driven globalization. Now we are well informed about other countries across the entire world and able to communicate internationally. Globalization has created a framework for cooperation among homelands. Generally, it has affected our nations and, indirectly we, the citizens in various ways; economically, politically, and socially, however it is a fast integration and association of various nations, which shapes the world affairs on a global level. The concept of globalization is evident in the many difficult challenges that come with it, involving our cultural differences, and the regulating challenge of globalizations. The phenomenon of globalization has affected many cultures around the world, resulting in the Americanization of other nations.
During the last decade of the twentieth century, the word ‘globalization’ has become an increasingly prominent feature of political, social, and economic discussion in academic and policymaking circles, as well as in the media. The processes and outcomes of globalization drew attention and debates that had one thing in common. The research shows that nearly everyone agrees that globalization is a trend that is changing the face of the world, and as a result the world society lives in a more ‘globalized’ world. Nearly two and a half decades passed since 1990s, and studies have been conducted to examine the causes and consequences of globalization. Moreover, nearly every person experiences some type of globalization and can testify firsthand the effects it has on their life, society, and the state. The analysis of the effects that globalization dynamics have on the world society indicates that globalization has a significant positive impact via spreading opportunities and wealth across nations, stimulating innovation and productivity, enhancing the economic development of poorer countries, and helping to improve living standards.
Globalization has enhanced speedy economic growth in China. It gives the countries that embrace the phenomenon opportunities for economic growth through increased access to foreign capital, modern technologies, new information and technical skills. Mike Collins in his article, The Pros and Cons of Globalization, points that globalization is an approach aimed at raising the social, economic and political status of both the poor and rich states through a global strategy. The approach, however, has come with its drawbacks that cannot go unnoticed. The most evident negative effect is that it has led to the exploitation of the poor, subjecting them to more poverty conditions, while the rich accumulate more wealth than ever before.
Globalization has many benefits and detriment to the culture in the developing countries. Globalization has increased cross-cultural understanding and sharing. A globalized society boosts the rate at which people are exposed to the culture, attitudes and values of people in other countries. Many developing countries cultures has been changed through globalization, and became imitate others cultures such as, America and European countries. Before globalization it would not have been possible to know about other countries and their cultures. Due to important tools of globalization like television, radio, satellite and internet, it is possible today to know what is happening in any countries such as, America, Japan and Australia. Moreover, people
In today’s world, economies are getting more integrated with each other every day. Different agreements are made with countries to help with trade and investment between the two. By doing so, it has the ability to help both economies by increasing the flow of money and culture between them. For example, we signed the North America Free Trade Agreement to help with trade in our region and also occurred when China joined the World Trade organization. The movement of different products and ideas is referred to as globalization. Globalization is the international trade, investments, information technology that weave individual countries’ economies together. It is known as economic integration of global markets, and helps third world countries
According to Richard N (2006), the free movement of goods due to free market or trade has led to globalization. Though the effects have been assumed to benefit all, there is a large inequality among the poor and the rich both within the countries among the nations. Capitalism is contributed to technological advancement, which has then influenced free trade. The uncontrolled globalization has resulted in more developed societies becoming rich. The rich economies are able to exploit the market by producing at lower price due to their level of technology and advancement in research. They are also able to protect their economy through export subsidies and production subsidies to their farmers. This translates to lower prices for their goods in the global market hence controlling it. The poor countries despite having comparative advantage in production of some commodities they also suffer from competitive advantage from the developed countries they are forced to sell their commodities at a lower price than their expected. They suffer a lot in global trade, which is mainly controlled by the wealthier nations. There are regulations, which restrict the flow of goods in the world market from poor societies. This makes
Globalization is a result of each country around the world, depending on one another for certain products as well as needing them to buy specific exports. Without it, no country can flourish and with it, there will always be inequality. It is something that is vital to our country as well as those around the world. The risk of inequality is outweighed by the possible benefits of globalization.
There are many ways to look at and understand modern globalization. In general terms, globalization means that the world, as a whole, is leading to a more utopian society, meaning that the globe is become very interconnected and similarities are growing between different regions and cultures of the world. Globalization is a phenomenon that has been evolving since before 10,000 B.C. This constant evolution can cause many problems, but it can also solve many issues positively as well. Development of any country, however, seems to be a key issue when discussing globalization. Globalization and development present two different factors in the world today. Many countries are lacking in their own development while the world around them is becoming more developed and globalized. Globalization hinders development because with globalization, less developed countries depend on more developed countries to help them to sustainability and self-reliance.
The countries that have experienced high and rising levels of poverty are more often than not, the developing countries that have been marginalised from the process of globalization. Think of North Korea or many countries in Africa. Such countries have insufficient levels of international trade and investment -- not too much. Whether poor countries are poor because they do not trade enough or because poverty stricken countries are prevented from engaging in the global economy, less globalization is generally associated with less development. Ernesto Zedillo, the former president of Mexico seems to have understood the power of globalization when he said, "In every case where a poor nation has significantly overcome its poverty, this has been achieved while engaging in production for export markets and opening itself to the influx of foreign goods, investment and technology -- that is, by participating in globalization."
