Globalization in the present day has:
Increased communication
Improved transportation
Improved growth of multinational companies
Enables greater trade
Increased levels of investment
Issue: Most of the countries that are located on the
northern half
of the world, or
developed nations
run businesses that have very
strict environmental laws
& are forced to compete with countries who provide
cheap labor
which allows products to
cost less
Solution: Businesses in developed countries get their goods from countries that are located on the
lower half
of the world, or
developing nations
because the labor is
cheaper
& environmental protections are
not placed
on most industries
