Overview


• The rapids spread of information technology and the opening of trade barriers between nations has created unintended and unknown ramifications in the economies of many of the worlds’ countries. NAFTA, in particular, has been a contentious issue in America, as industrial jobs are moved to Mexico or overseas, and Americans feel the shift of the economy toward a more global reality.

Globalization can be a good thing but also a bad ting. It can give people jobs and make people lose there jobs so depending on how you look at it, it can help people in life but at the same time other peoples lives could be ruined because of Globalization.

Lucas Silvasi
  • Globalization cannot be controlled by any one man, it results from many different parties being both political and economic, also the technological advances created are unpredictable. The world does not have any guidelines that everyone goes by for regulating transnational behavior.

  • Globalization benefits the devoloped countries more than the devoloping ones. Globalization was ment to help economic state in countries, however it has shown little to no change in devoloped or developing countries.

  • By most, globalization is made out to be a bad thing, however it continues to be a good thing for many of the poor. For example It has raised china and indias economic state to the point where over 200 million are out of poverty, and ever since globalization has started in 1990 it has made huge improvement bringing tens of millions to middle class.
