GLOBALIZATION

DEFINITION OF GLOBALIZATION

It describes the way countries and people of the world interact and integrate. Globalization has many sides and can be economic, political and/or cultural.

Economic globalization is how countries are coming together as one big global economy, making international trade easier. In the late 20th century, many countries agreed to lower tariffs, or taxes on goods that are imported from other countries. The way Internet and other communication technologies makes it easier for people to buy and sell products from around the world is an example of globalization.These are things like treaties, alliances, and other international agreements. Globalization is about international trade being less obstructed by national borders.

Political globalization is how institutions and countries can influence the whole world. The United Nations are an example of globalization because most countries of the world are members of its General Assembly. This international organization can make countries follow rules and apply economic sanctions to a country that doesn’t. This means the countries in the U.N will punish them by not talking or trading with them so they don’t benefit from globalization.

Cultural globalization is how culture is becoming homogeneous, which means that people from all over the world act in similar way. For example, many people around the world write with the Latin alphabet, wear T-shirts and jeans and watch Hollywood movies and other media.
