Globalization may be championed as a gateway to financial growth for all nations, but only certain nations benefit from it. Global trading and integration has a negative effect on undeveloped nations and developed nations in many ways including; political systems, sovereignty, economy, way of life and much more. Earlier in the essay I asked ‘do the pros outweigh the cons when it comes to globalization’ and from my research I don’t see any real benefit. I don’t believe we should eliminate global business, but better the already lacking regulations and probably increase the standard of living equally for the world.
Does international trade increase or decrease corruption? Challenging corruption has recently become one of the main priorities in a number of countries around the globe. Mainly because the negative effects of corruption have been widely recognized in practice and by the academics. The adverse effects of corruption vary; in developed countries corruption is relatively curbed; however in the underdeveloped world corruption usually accounts for enormous amount of the Gross National Product. There are a number of different approaches to fighting corruption as well as there are different causes of it.
The War On Drug: Reasons Behind The Criminalisation of Drugs and Functions of Crime In Society The history of the War on Drugs in the United States can be traced back to 1914 with the Harrison Act, the first recorded law to ban the domestic distribution of drugs, as the cornerstone of the criminalisation of drugs in America (McNamara, 2011). However the popularisation of the criminality of drug use was when President Richard Nixon coined the term ‘War on Drugs’ in 1971 (Provine, 2011, p.45). This essay focuses on the disproportionality of incarceration rates between African and Anglo Americans, and illustrates the unequal operation of law enforcement on African-Americans (Provine, 2011). This essay applies Marxist criminology to argue that the drug war is a manipulation of the law and system by the upper class to maintain their status and power over the lower class (Bradley & Walters, 2012). Therefore the drug war is not essentially focused on ‘illicit’ drugs, but focuses on controlling, labelling and marginalising racial minorities, especially African-Americans (Provine, 2011).
Wiarda, 2007, p 110). While many features of globalization have been beneficial, others have resulted in problems for certain economies and countries. Each of the benefits of globalization, from free trade to the free movement of labour, can also be a downside for specific countries and economies. One of the biggest downsides of globalization is the harm it can cause to economies at an early stage of development. Free trade forces all countries to compete using an even playing field, which puts less developed countries behind their more developed counterparts.
Empiri... ... middle of paper ... ...hat idea from functioning properly. From the evidence and statistics it looks like globalisation did more harm to developing nations than it did good. That might be because bigger countries can manipulate IMF, World Bank and WTO to their own advantage without actually breaking any rules. To me, globalisation just seems like a peaceful way for rich countries to rob and exploit poor countries. I agree that in some developing countries globalisation was beneficial and boosted their economics growth, but there are not that many examples of that, I would say that those countries are an exception because according to World Bank statistics the majority of LEDC’s with strong import liberalization have experienced anemic or negative growth over the past 20 years.
1. “The Citizens United Supreme court decision is bad not only because it opens the floodgates for unregulated money in politics but also because it elevates the influence and importance of outside interests over political parties”. What this quote asserts is as the result of the Citizens United decision, entities outside of government were granted greater leverage on the political parties. However, is this truly the envisioned outcome of this decision? While it is evident in a post-Citizens United political sphere, monetary contributions from outside groups have gone up substantially, does this increase actually enhance the clout of these outside interests over the parties?
Predatory capitalism drives down worker wages and rights in return for money while also privatizing public institutions such as education and health care. This causes the people doing the privatizing to gain profits quickly while causing the workers and lower classes that use the public institutions to suffer. In turn those things lead to a rigged economy as suddenly the higher classes have an easier chance to prosper in society which rigs the economy into their favor. Predatory capitalism is certainly a strong factor upon the formation of a rigged economy, but a more basic impulse of humanity is also one of the root
