Globalisation has led to the blurring of national boundaries, which allows nations around the world to communicate its ideas conveniently, at an unprecedented scale (Christou 2003). These global interactions allow for diverse cultural forms to disperse around the world, to be consumed by a wide array of people (Adams 2008). Despite the large, global impact of this phenomenon, it can be problematic to comprehend the nature of globalisation to a full extent, because of its vast nature and endless complexities (Mythen 2012). How is it that some nations have embraced the full extent of globalisation, and others are more closed off? Is it possible for cultures to maintain their traditional identities despite the influx of foreign influence?
Moreover, we can buy the popular products of high quality made in other countries, such as automobiles of Volkswagen and furniture of IKEA. Finally, globalization can lead to cooperation in trade between different countries. Even though globalization can bring so many conveniences to us, we still worry about its severe negative aspects. Globalization results in several grievous consequences in developing countries. First of all, As Buckley has written (1998), tourism causes the traditional culture hard to live and ultimately lost their identities.
This climate fosters a culture of sedation and distraction to escape the massive pitfalls of American life such as the oppressive and elitist power structures that exist, a... ... middle of paper ... ...ecessary component of the new form. I have argued previously that the contradictory pulls of integration and disintegration, of collaboration and cut-throat competition are built into the very nature of how network forms of organization grow and develop (Powell, 1990). How these combinational possibilities are realized depends largely on social and political relations and the trajectories inherent in particular technologies. In conclusion, the system must shift; it must change the things that society values from the wants of the few to the needs of the many. History has shown that a democratic system or not, once the power is taken away from the people, balance is eventually restored.
The ‘power of identity,’ as Tomlinson described, feeds from social movements like gender, sexuality, religion, ethnicity, and nationality issues. The expansion of globalization begins to influence governments who begin to weave their populations together into cultural, political and societal identities which overall, enhances culture. Tomlinson argues that “This more complex formulation clearly implies that cultural identity is not likely to be the easy prey of globalization. This is because identity is not in fact merely some fragile communal-psychic attachment, but a considerable dimension of institutionalized social life in
But, keep in mind that it does not only effect economic development itself, but our physical well being and quality of life and society around it. What does globalization mean to the United States (Pro and Con): There has been many political and economic consequences to globalization with many pro and cons to hold within it and they be of two different signs. One sign or view could be a sign of a hopeful future, but the other sign or view could be of a disaster to our worlds economy. For example, today corporations have become agents to globalism or what they would call "cultural imperialism". This new form of both political and economic domination have made many critics argue that any business enterprise capable of manipulating personal tastes will thrive, but state authorities everywhere will lose control over the distribution of both goods and services.
The introduction of new technologies like internet and television marketing campaigns by companies has introduced a new issue to society: compulsive buying (Roberts & Jones, 2001). Compulsive buying is characterized by undue or uncontrolled urge to shop and spend money. The advocates of consumer marketing manager’s should notice that consumption can be affected by negative buying impulses (Shoham & Brencic2003; Faber an... ... middle of paper ... ..., S.J., Eckert, E.D., Mussell, M.P. and Mitchell, J.E.

1.4.5 The effect of Globalization on consumer’s attitudes and behaviour Many economic, political and cultural practices have been changed due to globalization, which has influenced the international acceptance of the consumer values and created the fear of the disappearance of local cultural traditions. According to Buehler and Halbheer (2012) globalization has a massive correlation both positive and negative with religious and national cultures. Most of the researches on globalization effects has been focused on studying the similarity and differences between psychological behaviour of consumers and globalization to know the social changes across countries. In addition, globalization may create new lifestyles as well as lead to the isolation

As for the negative impact of globalization, among others: 1. Increased Crime Act Globalization and modernization will bring up various issues, among others: • The depletion of kinship. • The increasing sense of individualism. • The increasing competition alive. • The increasing consumptive lifestyle.
The main argument is that, contrary to conventional wisdom, neoliberalism and globalization contribute to processes leading to global anomie, dysnomie, and, ultimately, economic misconduct. They do so by activating the criminogenic potential of economic, political, legal, and cultural asymmetries, as well as by creating new such asymmetries (Passas, 1999). These asymmetries cause crime by furnishing opportunities for misconduct, by generating motives for actors to take advantage of such opportunities, and by weakening social controls. More specifically, means-ends disjunctions are systematically created, as neoliberal policies foster new needs and desires that are all too often left unfulfilled. Promises of more freedom, prosperity, and happiness for a larger number of people have turned out to be chimerical.
