What is globalization? Well that would depend on who you talk to. Some people would say that it is about world markets merging. Some might say that it is the shrinking of the globe by the speed of communication. While there still are others that would say that it is the blurring of the cultural lines among nations. Globalization could indeed be any and all of these things. The term has taken on many meanings to different people.
Some people blame globalization for the loss of jobs due to outsourcing while others rejoice at the new found employment opportunities brought to them.
While some people become mobilized to stand guard against the rising tide of globalization in fear that it will erode their national identities as borders are blurred; others will look upon the new found wealth of culture available to them.
The point here is that the world is full of people, many different kinds of people and the resources available should be available to everyone. We have the technology now to monitor and distribute vast quantities of data and goods to all corners of the globe. In order for the world to become a more fair and equitable place we must use these tools to their best advantage.
