By: Olivia Fejda and Maggie Lind Globalization Why
Globalization? Today, we are experiencing a surge in globalization. This means that we are becoming more interconnected to other nations through advancements in technology as well as becoming more influenced by the prominent messages displayed by social medias. Sociological
Relevance: Sociological
Paradigms When nations become interconnected information, ideals, and beliefs from cultures are passed along to other cultures, and vice versa. This changes the collective behavior, causing people to engage in behavior that is not part of their normal routine or culture. These changes are then either met by people who support change in society's behavior and norms, or oppose these new changes. Conflict
Theory Functionalism
Theory Symbolic Interactionism Theory The basic conflict in globalization is based on dependency. From the perspective of conflict theory, third world nations are at a disadvantage and are dependent on the economic wealth of global powers.

These third world countries sacrifice economic independence in order to claim a small portion of economic wealth. Functionalism theory views globalization as the interaction between producers and consumers. From the perspective of functionalism theory, it views that the interaction between producers (third world nations) and consumers (global powers) is based on the world trade system. These third world nations supply the raw materials and crafted goods for the world powers. The producers sell these goods to the consumers for a low sum, earning minimum profit, while the global powers can sell the goods to the citizens within their nation for a high price, earning a higher profit for the economy of the consumer country.
