Does Globalization equal Americanization?

Definition: the influence the United States has on the culture of other countries, such as their popular culture, cuisine, technology, business practices, or political techniques

History of Globalization
Early Globalization
§ The Greeks created globalized using their vastly superior economic centers. During the Hellenistic Age, most Mediterranean cities had some form of Greek influence.
§ The Romans used their vast military might to spread their culture. All the known world had some form of Roman influence and some still survive today.
Inside the US: Americanization is the acculturation of immigrants.

Outside the US: Americanization is the influence the United States has on other countries cultures.
Modern Globalization

§ Today military conquering is rare however economics is the new form of industrialism
§ Products from one country end can up at every end of the globe (ie: coke)
§ With modern technology, like airplanes, goods and people can now be easily moved from one country to another
§ International Organizations now control almost every aspect of the global economy even in states that aren’t members (ie: sanctions)
§ Starting in the 15th Century, European powers began to come to the New World and create colonies.
§ From the late 18th Century to the late 19th Century, colonialism began to die out
§ In 1885, colonialism came back with the Scramble for Africa by European powers
Initially the term was used in the 19th century to describe the way new immigrant populations were assimilated into the nation through an active reception of american values.

The term has since changed and means the passing of American ideas.
Beginning in the 1950's the Unites States began to invest in other countries

The US controls and manipulates the global financial institutions such as the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Trade Organization (WTO) which determine and regulate global trade.
The US dollar has become the standard currency between countries.
English has become the language of trade.
Globalization is not Americanization
Americanization equals Globalization
American culture is spread through social aspects:
Why Globalization Is NOT Americaization
The world population is over 7 billion people.
Globalization does not equal homogenization.
Just because countries trade does not mean they adopt there culture.
Japan Example
Japan became the first Asian country to embrace globalization, and to borrow successfully from the world without losing its uniqueness.
During Meiji Restoration Japan sent young to gather ideas from other parts of the world.
Japan adapted through ideas it gathered from German models instead of some american ideas
Japan kept their own culture while still modernizing.
Loss of cultural diversity.
Anti american feeling.
