Impact on Human Rights
Impact on Environment
Affect on Culture
Effect on Politics
Is globalization redefining the US and the world beneficially?
"Globalization is the development of
an interconnected global society through trade, communication, transport and technology. "
1. Increasingly connected worldwide trade
2. Greater specialization for making said products
3. Improved standard of living, most noticeably in developed countries
4. Global leisure opportunities
1. Economic conflicts due to rising trade competition
2. Jobs are being lost out in developed countries by cheap labor in developing countries
3. Transfer of superiority to even stronger nations
4. Losing the cultural identity of one's country due to hostile economics
1. Increased pollution such as Co2 emission
2. Deforestation to reduce oxygen levels further
3. Worsening of the Greenhouse Effect
1. Increasing interaction between populations who would have possibly never met
2. Cultural blend with language, foods, customs, etc.
3. Disruption of local producers
1. Due to faster connectivity and global interaction, the spread of new ideas and beliefs are faster than ever
2. Competition for power throughout the world
3. Establishment of global political entities
Companies that have violated Human Rights
1.Walmart: Has violated human rights due to using children on reported 19 hour shifts with 6.5 cents an hour. People have said that the kids had gotten up at 5 in the morning to brush their teeth with only their finger and ashes from the fireplace.
Due to globalization, there was a profound effect on the connectivity of the U.S. and other countries. This allows the U.S. to interact with more countries than ever before in order to buy cheaper products and spread their beliefs throughout the world. In all globalization was very beneficial for the U.S.
1. Potential environmental harm and destruction
2. Spread of disease and illness
3. Unequal beneficiaries: labor exploitation, widening of rich/poor gap, unequal consumption of resources, etc.
4. Jobs are being lost in developed countries due to cheap labor in other countries
Killings, torturings, withholding and selling of resources (water)
Violent methods of discouraging unionizing
3. Koch Industries:
Forcing policies on sponsored politicians, judges, and organizations
Trying to remove, unions, and social security
Working to re-segregate schools
Illegal Pollution (toxic) within their industries
1. The discouragement of labor unions due to the inefficiencies of them
2. Exploitation of working class individuals by the wealthy class in developed nations
3. Placing profit and financial gains above the lives of working individuals
4. Increasing divide between social and economic classes as well as larger and more exposed gap between developed and under-developed nations
Globalization can have varying effects on any given person due to status and location. Low class citizens in under-developed countries are often paid very little and work harder than is commonly accepted as ethically right. However, on the opposite end of the spectrum, higher class citizens in under-developed countries are now getting more work than every before due to cheap labor. This tempts developed countries to buy cheaper goods and do more business with them. There are many more scenarios, however the main point is that globalization is neither good or bad, but rather neutral.
