Another negative consequence of globalization in culture is the transnational similarity, because it creates the risk of global standardization. People can recognize a cultural and consumption adjustment to certain patterns. These include, for example, cinema films from Hollywood, the drink Coca-Cola or standardized thinking models and customs. Another major problem of globalization is that one 's cultural traditions have turned more into obstacles. Poor countries would also be forced to give up their own traditions to meet the expectations of tourists.
INTRODUCTION Globalization suggests the foundational of nationalistic perspectives to a wider platform of interdependency of global countries with free transmission of capital, goods, and services athwart national boundaries.

Globalization is the integration of economics, political, and cultural system across the globe. However, other critics view it as an Americanization of the world culture, a means by which the U.S to systematically dominate the world affaires?

Globalization is the continuous act of sharing ideas, culture and goods across the world. Socially this is done through the internet, social media, news broadcasting agencies and even through an increase in immigration and traveling. Economically and politically an increasingly globalized world has been formed through an increase in trade of knowledge and resources, bills and acts, increase in communication availability and organizations such as the UN.

In much of Latin America, import liberalization has been credited with increasing the number of people living below the USD $1 a day poverty line and has perpetuated already existing inequalities (Watkins, 2002).
