The term “Globalization” has been in existence for the past 50 years. It is one of the major causes of the increase in international trade.

The United States refused to give aid to Hungarian patriots because they were so concentrated on expanding onto western lands. The U.S wanted the country to reach from east to west, from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean. The United States was embodying Manifest Destiny. I think that this is an example of isolationism. Isolationism is a policy of remaining apart from the affairs of other nations.

According to a recent survey done by INEC 318,810 households or almost a quarter of the country is living in poverty. Poverty in Costa Rica is present and very evident to any tourist of the country, down almost every given alleyway you can find a dilapidated shack with clothes hanging on a line outside. For most of the country these shacks are called home and feature no running water or little to no indoor plumbing. For the children that reside here there is a minuscule opportunity for them to overcome this poverty and are “marked” so to speak by their circumstances. The average income per month for the household also dropped 0.4 percent in 2014, which stretched the spending power a little bit slimmer than normal.
April 1992, Bosnia were declared as an independent country by the European people and the United States, but the struggle for Bosnian territorial sovereignty had not ended. This is because of the three main groups fought each other within the country which is Bosnian Muslims, Serbs, and Croats. The international community tried to help them with their war but unfortunately it is not working.. The conflict was very violent in the eastern part of Bosnia, near Serbia, between the Serbs and Bosnians. The Serbs, who opposed the creation of a Bosnian state within their territory, began to bomb major cities in Bosnia, including Sarajevo and Mostar, and also took hold of wide areas of Bosnia in order to form a Serbian territory.
Human Rights Watch urges the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to cease its bombing campaign against the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia.

NATO should instead seek to transform Russia 's passive support for the Serbs into active opposition.
About 250 million years ago, all the continents were linked together as one body known as Pangaea. There were no barriers separating the continents and the world was united as one. Today, we experience this effect once again; however, this time nations are connecting through the power of globalization. There has been three main factors that played major roles in which globalization differ from 21st century and 20th century: cultural intelligence, media, and education. Cultural acceptance in the 20th century was not acknowledged as much as today, because people were still adjusting to the Post War Era.

At the same time, if poor and less-developed countries, they cannot rapidly develop an economic institution comparable to regional and global economic institutions, or if they do not have a actual ability to compete and integrate, they may become mere suppliers of raw materials, consumers of products mass-produced by developed countries, or even of products forbidden from manufacture nations, namely, obsolete, prohibited or pollution-causing technology from developed countries under the guise of technology assistance or technology transfer.
