Globalization has positive effects on several aspects of our lives. As a result of INTERREGIONAL LINKAGES, our world becomes tied closer and closer together every day. New technology is constantly being released to the public that promotes these kinds of activities. With our country being tied to several others through politics, social connections, and the economy, it is no wonder that globalization can have a positive impact over people everywhere. Industrialization led to massive growth in urban areas in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
Globalization has affected various factors and areas in our society such as, the global scale of trade; the interconnection of the markets all around the globe, as well as the economic intensity of modern human activities has been historically extraordinary. Moreover, it (globalization) also fuelled global changes like global warming. These global changes influence patterns of human health and international health care, as well as public health activities. As McMichael (2013) explains, these changes also contribute to various syndromes and reflect the interconnected pressures, stresses, as well as tensions that are arising from a very large population of the world. In addition to that, the universal and the increasingly systematic environmental
Having Globalization supports free and better trade all over the globe. However, Globalization can have a negative effect on the world. Employment can decline in a globalized world, It can hurt nations economy, and If country’s cant function together it can create global strife. Globalization is a positive force for the world because it promotes free trade. In a globalized world, free trade is one of the main factors that contribute to globalization.
However in my opinion, globalization has done more harm than good to the people of the world especially people in the developing world. With the way the world economy is going it is obvious that the main beneficiaries of globalization are the developed capitalist countries. There have been many human rights abuses since the introduction of globalization. First and foremost the gap between the rich and poor keeps on widening and inequality is
Information technology drives the innovative use of resources to promote new products and ideas, and makes communication easier and convenient. However, globalization also has adverse effects in the Pacific. The following are some of the adverse effects or negative effects which globalization has on the Pacific Islanders; • Global warming- It refers to an increase in an average global temperatures which caused by natural and human activities (Shah, 2014). Increase in temperature can cause rise to sea levels. Therefore, suffering most of Pacific Island nations since they are small islands.
The focus of globalization on the economic benefits needs to be translated into health benefits. It also required that the resources generated by globalization process should be more favourable to developing countries and used to strengthen health systems, to ensure universal access to cost-effective interventions, and to improve other services essential to health, such as education, water and sanitation, environmental protection and effective nutrition and health safety programmes (Woodward et al, 2001). Countries should protect health-related spending from reducing in public expenditure, limiting the adverse effects of low or negative growth on the incomes of the poor, this will equally minimize the adverse effect on the health. It is important to monitor the effects of globalization and health, and to ensure that the results of such monitoring are fed effectively into decision-making processes at the national and international
My Thoughts on Globalization I believe that globalization brings more positive benefits the world than negative consequences. The global development witnessed in both the developed and developing worlds would not have been possible without globalization. Globalization brings many positive benefits but also brings some negative consequences. I strongly believe that these negative consequences can be effectively controlled and managed to a level that it will have little
The negative impacts of globalization focus onthe destruction on the environment that is export-oriented. On the other hand, thepositive impacts are the multinational companies research into technology that iseco-friendly and an increase in environmental awareness. A
is suffering from the effects of globalization, distancing nationals from their heritage, decreasing the use of their mother tongue, leaving behind their traditions and forgetting their ethnic beliefs. There have been many uses and justifications for globalization over the years. Most of the positive ones come from an economic and commercial perspective. From an economic perspective, many countries with a weak infrastructure and high unemployment rates benefit greatly from local workers being hired in foreign-owned enterprises. Multinationals that setup factories, sweatshops, and outlets in various countries around the globe are the main enablers of globalization.
Nowadays, the world is getting closer, the gap between countries is shorter and shorter day by day, people all around the world have better chance to see the others, and the movement between different places is easier than itself 50 years ago. These are ones of the positive impacts of globalization, which also “increase[s] of trade around the world, especially by large companies producing and trading goods in many different countries.” (Cambridge for Advanced Learner Dictionary 7th Edition). Globalization not only creates opportunities, but also poses a lot of challenges for the whole world, under the pressure globalization, people must stay creative and always have new idea or method to access to the always-new world. Now is the time of globalization, however the first steps of it appears a long time ago with the journey around the world of Ferdinand Magellan in the 16th century as the first geographical discovery or the role of Silk Route during the Han Dynasty, which supports the purchase between China and the other countries in Indian subcontinent, Persia, Europe, Africa (North Africa) and Arabia. The advantages of them are remarkable, especially in economy.
