This contributes to the ongoing cycle of poverty and increases the gap between the rich and poor. Those who are left unemployed have no means to... ... middle of paper ... ...s are being over shadowed due to globalization. Although we all enjoy the advantages that globalization has made way for, we cannot disregard the negative effects it has had on the world. It’s easy to understand how businesses may benefit from a global market in some ways, but to me it is far more important that jobs not be loss as a result of globalization. Many different factors contribute to the exploitation of developing countries and has caused many issues for them economically.
In fact it is not as easy as that enables us to judge of globalization in one world. It is very complex and has many different aspects. I can say that globalization is a double edged sword and the judgment of people vary according to their beliefs and attitudes. In this research I focused on the positive aspect which led to support the trading and economy, develops the industries plus reduces the poverty rate and enhances the level of living dramatically. As it creates new opportunities for people which leads in result to participate in building societies and world as a whole.
Globalization has affected every aspect of the business community in one way or another. Globalization in a simple sense is a business’s movement from one country to another. This is done for a number of reasons; amount of readily available resources, labor market, increased number of customers, and to ultimately become more profitable. There is a decisive advantage for a business to move overseas, but there are a number of drawbacks globalization creates on the local economy. When businesses become an international entity the home country experiences increased unemployment rates, the human resource department now has to manage across borders, prices of goods fluctuate, and forcing wages to decrease for unskilled workers and increase for skilled ones.
While all of this is happening, the world economy is being effected: economically, culturally, socially, and politically. It is known that the economy is definitely effected by globalization, but not always in a negative way. In a sense, the world revolves around some situations dealing with globalization. Countries around the world are becoming more of a unified world because of the advantages and technologies of globalization. “The globalization both production and capital has the affect of limiting the effectiveness if states in managing their own economies, and limiting their ability to adapt policies that are not seen to be market friendly” (Goudie 531).
Whether globalization is a force of good or evil has become a highly contested issue throughout the world. The proliferation of economic globalization has been advocated for with the claim that a greater socioeconomic integration and collaboration among countries will increase the living standards of both the rich and the poor. However, as Stiglitz indicates in the book Making Globalization Work, while it is true that globalization has enormous potential to make the world a better place, what is problematic is the amalgam between politics and economics that has shaped globalization resulting many losers and few winners. This paper will aim to show that on the one hand economic and corporate globalization are not the great evil portrayed by Wayne Ellwood in The No-Nonsense Guide to Gobalization, but neither can globalization and free trade be equated with increased living standards for all. Instead, the potential of globalization must be acknowledged, though one must take into account the negative impact it has had on the world and look for ways in which it can be improved as argued by Joseph Stiglitz.
Imagine a world without technology. The thought alone boggles the mind as many advances would not exist in today’s time. Luckily, this is not the case since more people than ever before are connected socially, culturally, economically, and politically. Implementation and technological innovation of the world has shown tremendous growth, but how? It is known that these factors have had influences on the current globalization on the economy, however, an explanation is at hand.
Developing countries were often short of capital, hindered the development of domestic enterprises, so employment is very important for developing countries. Due to the nature of globalization, people in developing countries can also get paid jobs. Many companies began to invest and produce business operation entity in developing countries, such as Brazil and India. Good companies attract a lot of foreign investment, pushing up foreign exchange reserves. Although it is generally believed that all innovations have occurred in the western world, know how to enter developing countries due to globalization.
The shifts in comparative advantage are responsible for losses resulting from international competitiveness. One may argue that such shifts benefit the general economy by putting resources to more productive use. However, they are immensely costly in the short run and these costs must be forestalled by implementing protectionist measures. Despite the fact that some sectors have reaped immense benefits from international trade, a few have not done so well in that respect. In the United States, such industries include apparel and textiles, footwear, electronic goods, basic steel and iron and motor vehicles.
For decades, American citizens have been complaining about how outsourcing has ruined their lives and that it is only going to harm America and its economy. Unfortunately, jobs are going to be lost and the unemployment rate may rise due to globalization. However, the benefits of globalization are infinite. People in other parts of the world will achieve a greater life than they ever thought possible due to the factories built in their countries. Due to the poverty in third world countries, these factories will provide a great source of income for the citizens of third world countries.
