Globalization is a concept with a variety of meanings making it quite confusing. The concept includes a wide variety of events as well as aspects of personal and social life. However, some scholars have attempted to offer some definitions of this concept: It has been defined as the increasing unification in the economic order of the world via the reduction of barriers to free international trade like tariffs, import quotas, and export fees. Globalization describes the process in which regional economies, cultures, and societies have become integrated via transportation, communication, and trade (Croucher 10). It is closely associated with economic globalization, which is “the process by which markets and production in different countries are becoming increasingly interdependent due to the dynamics of trade in goods and services and flows of capital and technology” (Held 92). However, it is not only driven by economic factors, but also a combination of the economic factors with the technological, biological, political, and socio-cultural factors (Croucher 10).
The world we live in today is going through enormous changes in economics, technology, culture, politics, etc. The effects of the changes are not so clear, since it is hard to predict how each sector would affect the other and how society will be affected. However, analyzing past and present occurrences provides some information for experts to interpret society’s reaction in the future to different transformations. Globalization can be seen as a process in which societies around the world come together and expand through the combination of different forces. This paper will explore the effects of globalization on US companies, US society and economy, and the implications for other countries in the post-industrial world.

Globalization is the highest stage of internationalization, where the broader representation under it means the totality of processes and phenomena such as trans-border flows of goods, services, capital, technology, information, cross-country movement of people, and prevalence of orientation to the world market in trade, investment and other transactions territorial and institutional integration of markets.
The interrelation and the integration of people, companies, governments and nations can be described as globalization. Globalization was produced due to international trade and investments with the help of technology. In today’s world, globalization is very essential. The advancements and technology help the process needed it for globalization. Many countries and organizations similarly are affected by this phenomenon, on the other hand, smaller countries have benefit from larger contributors in the world’s market.
In today’s continuously changing world, many experts say that globalization is what every business, organization, and nation should seek and welcome as a positive change. However, many people are unaware of the main focus and meaning of Globalization, especially in comparison to Localization. A large number of people believe that globalization is just another common word used to refer to changes and differences that cannot be explained or accounted for. Therefore, many different activities or changes are improperly labeled to be a part of or caused by globalization.
Globalization’s history is extremely diversified and began during the beginning of civilization. Now we live in a world that is constantly evolving, demanding people to use resources in locations that are very difficult to obtain certain resources. This could make it completely impossible to operate in these specific parts of the world. However, globalization allows people across the world to acquire much needed resources. Globalization creates the opportunity for businesses to take advantage and exploit the ability to take part of their business to a different country. Nevertheless, globalization is part of today’s society and will be involved in virtually all situations.
In the book Globalization: A Very Short Introduction by Manfred Steger and the reprint Globalization and the Impact of American Popular Culture Abroad by Carl Guarneri, the point is made how recognized globalization has become and how much it has affected citizens around the world. Some of the debates over the effects of cultural globalization are: the West and its multinational corporations after World War II, what it promotes to the world’s people, the views of consumer capitalism’s effects and the repercussions of the globalization of culture.
The term ‘Globalization’ refers to is the integration of economies, industries, markets, cultures and policy-making round the globe. It explains a progression by which both national and regional economies, societies, and cultures have become incorporated through the universal system of commerce, communication, migration and transportation.
Globalization is the connection of different parts of the world. Globalization results in the expansion of international, cultural, economic, and political activities. As people, ideas, knowledge, and goods move easily around the globe, the experiences of people around the world become more similar. (“Definition of Globalization“, n.d., ¶ 1)
