In this essay I will discuss Globalization ruining the integrity of many countries and also is forcing many undeveloped nations into a bind, and is causing economic distress on some developed nations. Also, due to economic globalization the nations of the world are diluting their culture, sovereignty, natural resources, safety and political system. My goal is not to change your way of thought, but only to enlighten you of the negatives of global economic expansion. Now, before I bash globalization it is some positive I would like to discuss. Globalization is great for the American economy; we can supply the world with our goods and services, which in turn can possible, relieve the deficit we’re in.
It is becoming a major concern of why businesses are receiving more support from the government than individuals do. In addition, it is vital for emerging nations to open their economies to compete with each other and with more powerful and established industrialized nations. These developing nations are constantly competing to see ... ... middle of paper ... ...eignty; in addition, to having no repercussions with regards to their actions. Corporations will carry on dominating as well as soar in size. Large businesses will maintain relations with government officials causing our economy and societies to be exhausted of its wealth.
Yet despite its threat to the American way of life and economy, many powerful elites believe in amnesty because: it drives down labor costs (but they forget to mention workers wages as well), it is "racist" (or at least many political figures will have you believe), and it is a huge untapped constituency. I believe that it would be in the United States best interest to increase our military presence and use of high tech surveillance on the border and continue to work bilaterally with Mexico, as well as create harsher domestic laws to help limit the flow of illegal drugs and immigrants into our nation. The first major concern regarding the borders for the United States is illegal immigration. In January of 2000, the INS estimated that there were 7 million illegal immigrants in the United States with the number growing by about 500,000 a year. Under the Bush Administration, funding has increased along main entry points, displacing illegal immigrants points of entry into the country.
Government regulations to help prevent monopolies can actually make it more difficult for small businesses to survive. People portray monopolies as greedy businesspeople who want to take all the money away from consumers. Despite that, people often forget that monopolies are still disciplined by market forces. It does not make sense for a monopoly to set prices so high that consumers cannot purchase the product or to create a useless product that no one will buy (“Monopolies,” 2015). This is an easily understandable, but quickly forgotten fact.
The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) has been a Disaster Not long ago, the global economy didn’t matter much to the average American. But the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and Most Favored Nation status (MFN) with China taught millions of Americans that economic forces beyond our borders can powerfully affect us, helping determine whether our jobs will be moved away, or whether our wages and benefits will be lowered. One of the great crises facing American workers is “the race to the bottom” within the global economy. As a result of increased capital flow, various “free trade” agreements, and the role of international financial organizations like the International Monetary Fund, workers in the United States are increasingly being put in the position of having to “compete” with desperate Third World workers in Mexico, China, Vietnam and other countries who are forced to work for wages as low as 20 cents an hour. Clearly, Congress must make radical changes in our trade policies and our relationship to such international financial organizations as the IMF and the World Bank.
It is generally argued that globalization has made the rich richer while making the non-rich poorer. “It is wonderful for managers, owners and investors, but hell on workers and nature.” The biggest problem for developed countries is that jobs are lost and transferred to lower cost countries. Workers in developed countries like the US face pay-cut demands from employers who threaten to export jobs. This has created a culture of fear for many middle class workers who have little leverage in this global game. Large multi-national corporations have the ability to exploit tax havens in other countries to avoid paying taxes.
The Organizations are taking over the world in order to expand on the poor only to chase the cash. These reasons should make people want to end globalization that’s border line unethical and find a decent ways to trade goods and produce products without the elimination of a working class. As a nation holding large corporations accountable for having large factories outside the United States and sweatshop owned by big business foreign and domestic yet, we honestly need a president that will hold his foot down on the throats of companies that don’t follow environmental laws which would over time slow down the greenhouse emissions. Improving the world’s current condition must come from understanding the pros and cons of globalizations to helping reverse the problems that we are faced with in today’s society.
By nature these two statements conflict in that those who own the means to produce goods and services have disproportionate power to ordinary citizens, while democracy states that these ordinary citizens should have a say in how a company is run, because it affects them as well. ... ... middle of paper ... ...people in the world because of these people in charge of the "best and most profitable global corporations", I think they should be convicted of crimes against humanity. Democracy shouldn't be this way; power should be brought back to the people and focus more on co-operation instead of competition. Competition only breeds more competition, and the "winners" keep winning while keeping the ones who lose in a downward spiral to the bottom. Co-operation and democracy go hand in hand, and hopefully in the future people will realize what we can become.
Businesses will always bend toward the needs of their consumers in order to make a profit. Their violation of human rights throughout the world was only in an effort to reduce cost therefore allowing lower price point for their consumer to beat their competitors. This has caused a oligarchic structure where a small group of multi-billion dollar corporations with have control of the marketplace. In conclusion, business is a platform for spreading ideologies that may consist of democracy or human rights. Both the government as well as business are dependant on people that make up these organizations.
Congress thinks they know best about how to best spend U.S. tax dollars in a way that could stimulate our economy. They believe that the tax dollars spent on projects would fully cycle through t... ... middle of paper ... ...eed to cut most if not all ties to China. They have way too much governance and power over the U.S. and other countries. They are more worried about their own interests and benefits, so much so that they are taking over all products in America and making their own for less. While the U.S. is busy fighting each other about conflicting political stances, other countries are thriving off our indecisiveness.
