The term globalization is derived from the word globalize, which refers to the emergence of an international network of social and economic systems. Globalization describes the interplay across cultures of macro-social forces, which include religion, politics, and economics. However over though the same forces still apply, globalization as a whole has transformed due to the technology and resources we have available to us.
