Transcript of Globalization
globalization of culture What are some of the arguments FOR Globalization on CULTURE? By: Noah Storey Globalization Globalization is just that, around the globe, and we sometimes seem to forget that. May of the worlds cultures are spreading and gaining popularity around the world, right now, in our society. So, my definition: Culture is the true essence of the people living in one area, and no i don't just mean the things that they eat or what they wear, (Yes those are important aspects of it but it is not everything). Culture is EVERYTHING that a group of people do. It is who they are, and what they live for. Asian Culture American Culture English Culture Indian Culture And because of GLOBALIZATION we can all co-exist in one location "Globalization can be a profoundly enriching process, opening minds to new ideas and experiences, and strengthening the finest universal values of humanity." (Joseph Schumpeter, Austrian economist) Globalization101.org. "Culture and Globalization Preface." Accessed January 21, 2013. http://www.globalization101.org/category/issues-in-depth/culture/. The globalization of the production and distribution of goods and services is a welcome development for many people in that it offers them access to products that they would not otherwise have. Globalization101.org. "Globalization vs. Local Cultures." Accessed January 21, 2013. http://www.globalization101.org/globalization-vs-local-cultures/. Globalization can also reinforce local cultures. In India, for example, satellite TV permits an increase in the number of regional channels, many of which can and do telecast Indian content. This gives an Indian individual new opportunities to identify with his regional ties and can also enhance cultural awareness. Globalization101.org. "Reaffirmation of Local Culture." Accessed January 21, 2013. http://www.globalization101.org/reaffirmation-of-local-culture/. There is cultural intermingling. Each country is learning more about other cultures and socially we have become more open and tolerant towards each other. Globalization brings increased interaction and adaptation between cultures. As happens in interpersonal relationships, we usually learn and grow as we interact; societies and cultures also get enhanced through interaction, observation, and mutual give and take. The Japanese culture was enhanced in various ways as a result of interaction with the Chinese over the centuries. Tandon, Satish. "Globalization and Culture."

The people of southeast Asia did experience a tremendous amount of growth over the past couple of decades, but it wasn't experienced equally by all of their people. The poor have seen a moderate rise in incomes while the wealthy have seen incredible rises in their incomes. Globalization has led to greater disparity in wealth within many countries. Back to southeast Asia, the people of those countries did experience a tremendous amount of growth over the past couple of decades, but it wasn't experienced equally by all of their people. The poor have seen a moderate rise in incomes while the wealthy have seen incredible rises in their incomes. Yahoo. "What are the arguments for and against globalization?." Accessed January 21, 2013. http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20081111114744AAv7Gi8. Globalization does hurt some workers in each country. For example, the US used to make most of the TVs sold in our stores. Now, the US buys all of its TVs from abroad. When NAFTA opened trade with Mexico, our TV factories closed their US plants and moved to Mexico, where they could find cheaper labor. On the flip side, Mexican farmers have been hurt by imports of American food. With all of our large farming machinery, local Mexican farmers can't compete with large American farmers, and they are being put out of business.
