The Influence of Cultural Globalization on Chinese Culture As Yu(2008) says, globalization represents a worldwide transformation of historical significance. Based on worldwide economic integration, globalization is characterized by intrinsic, inseparable, and intensified interrelations across the globe. Apparently, during the process of globalization, Chinese community has been affected on every aspect strongly nowadays. China also has developed a lot under the process of globalization, especially in economy, politics, culture, etc. Speaking of Chinese culture, China is a country with an ancient civilization and a long history, and culture has always been an outstanding feature of its national strength.
Some scholars have pointed out that “globalization has fueled economic developments in both developed and developing countries, but has also intensified both positive and negative interdependence among national and religious cultures”. ( Chiu, C., Gries, P., Torelli, C. J., & Cheng, S. Y. 2011) It is a general problem which is not happening in China only. Besides, people’s values may have changed through the process of world globalization in the aspects of cultural psychology and cultural identity. According to my knowledge, Chinese now even attach more importance to western festivals such as Christmas and Valentine’s Day rather than our own traditional festivals.
This society authored by the Chinese had its benefits and its drawbacks. To begin with, the Chinese society had many positive attributes which greatly shaped classical China. Firstly, slavery in China was found within the aristocratic estates, but the Chinese did not really rely on slavery as the engine to its economy, so relatively the slave population in China was small. Secondly, the Chinese people were “religiously” diverse by accepting belief systems from Confucianism, to Daoism, to Legalism, and even the polytheist religion during the prime of the Zhou dynasty. This sharing and diversity of religious thought greatly shaped the Chinese Empire as a divine culture and in intellectual advance.
The discovery of internet has allowed people from all over the world to connect with each other through the World Wide Web. The internet has shifted all kinds of businesses to be more automated, such as online shopping, banking, marketing, and many more. The downside of this is the fact that a lot of people lost their job due to new technology innovations. People are becoming less needed in the service industry and can be replaced by technology. This could be very daunting in the near future when technology is just going to be more advanced.
Thanks to globalization technology has travelled all over the world to help people have easy access to information. Information can be accessed easily and freely through the internet, mobile phones, television and other devices. Globalization has increased the economic right for people worldwide especially in the developed world. There has been an increase in the standard of living of many people hence healthy lifestyles. However in my opinion, globalization has done more harm than good to the people of the world especially people in the developing world.
Globalization has been going on for a long time. When people first started going on voyages in ships bringing goods and trading in ports, that was globalization. Economic globalization are said to bring the world together with shared knowledge and information. Foreign exchange will happen and the world will be more open towards each other. It is the belief that when a country is globalized, the citizens will benefit.

Globalization and it 's Impact Globalization is the process of making people more interdependent economically, socially and politically. Environmental and technological interdependence on one another plays a key role as well. One of the main questions that arises when globalization is discussed is to what extent should it be embraced? When examining the definition above most people may come to the conclusion that it allows cultures, ideas and beliefs to spread, which would result in development, correct, to a certain extent. In the given source, Cheney is speaking from a western setting, which results in him for globalization instead of against because the western world usually enjoys the benefits of it, while developing
“Instead of destroying some cultures, as others predicted, mass media assists in the revitalizing and restoring of cultural preservation of nations.” (Ginsburg, 2002). One may also argue to say globalisation preserves culture through the international trade of local traditional products therefore promoting exposure of indigenous cultures on a global
A globalization process is unstoppable; it is necessary progress of human civilization and has an important meaning, which is largely positive. “UNESCO”, one of largest peace organization of the world, defines globalization as, “the ongoing process that linking people, cities, and countries much more closely together than they have ever been before.” One main aspect of globalization that has positively influenced today 's society is a cultural globalization. It was caused because of the barrier that existed between the Eastern and the Western parts of the world. It has positive effect on three main aspects: language, world trade and expansion of music.
