I believe that these two sources are very useful to a historian studying the Marshall Plan, as they clearly demonstrate the distinctive differences between the Soviet response and the American response to the Marshall Plan and the motivation behind it, and therefore help a historian to understand why it was so controversial and caused a lot of tension between the two superpowers. Source A presents the Orthodox view toward the Marshall Plan, from George Marshall the creator himself. This source is very useful to a historian, it tells us that the USA clearly felt that it was necessary for them to launch the Marshall Plan to help Europe recover from the war as this would be beneficial to the USA, after William Clayton returned from a fact-finding
Besides, the expanded use of the Internet has made it easier to establish global contacts, to access to a worldwide source of articles and papers, to study from distance, and to cooperate with scholars or other figures around the world (Gunnarson, 2009). Moreover, the revolution of technology and technological advances, including closed legal communities, now allows cooperate clients “share and syndicate legal advices and documents online to tackle collective regulatory and compliance problems” (Rose,
In other words do away with the old ways, for U.S. supremacy was over. The Trilateral Commission wanted to create a complex interdependency by working with other nations to establish human rights. Carter took steps to reduce arms and the sale of armaments so that the threat of nuclear warfare would be reduced. Thus creating freedom from the fear of communism. During the Cold War Cater called for a new Foreign policy , one based on the idea the United States could help shape a new world rooted in good values, morals and optimism.
In the contemporary society, there are an increasing number of people involved in the globalisation. I choose the topic of international trade. And in the following paragraphs, I am going to introduce what is international trade, other possible benefits of trading globally and the bottom line. (Heakal 2015) Thanks to the international trade that allows us to expand the market for goods and services. And also, as a result of international trade, the market contains greater competition with more competitive price and cheaper products.
Kofi Annan – the secretary of United Nation - once said: “It has been said that arguing against globalization is like arguing against the laws of gravity.”. In his quote, his obvious idea is that to go and denied the effects of globalization process to the world would be such a waste effort since the globalization also brings many advantages to each country’s culture. It is true that the globalization process does have some bad effects on the variety and unique of different cultures in the world. Besides all the disadvantages that the former brings to many countries such as more competition in job hunting for native workers or the price competition between domestic and foreign products (Cuadra-Montiel, 2012), it can be denied that globalization still brings many benefits to the cultural diversity. The process of globalization also creates great opportunities for each country to develop and express their unique culture to the world.
As with every issue in the world, some support the idea and other disagree. Based on the ideas the book offers about globalization, I do not see a reason to oppose the idea. While it does have some disadvantages, globalization helps to regulate our world of raw products, manufactured good, etc. Without regulation stemming from somewhere in the world, the GLOBAL ECONOMY would cease to exist. Globalization has positive effects on several aspects of our lives.
Neoliberalism is a political ideology that has become one of the dominant schools of thought in many modern countries, and has therefore become intricately woven into the globalization of society. Globalization is a broad term that refers to the increasing relations between different countries that spans all aspects of life, inclusive of social, political, and economic. It is this increasing sense that these relationships stretch across borders of specific countries that helps to create more global citizens as opposed to national citizens (Steger 15). With the governments of countries becoming increasingly involved with one another, and with neoliberalism being so present in these countries political ideologies, it makes sense that neoliberalism would play a vital role in current globalization. By examining some of the main tenants of neoliberalism philosophy, and through studying concrete examples, we can see how they have been influential in shaping modern routes of globalization, while also taking into consideration that this may not be inherently good by examining pushback.
A rational explanation of war: An examination of The Clash of Civilizations The Clash of Civilizations is a postulate by political scientist, Samuel P. Huntington; moreover, it seeks to provide a rational explanation for post-Cold War conflict: cultural identification. The United States of America has endured as the last great hegemon of the Cold War era making it the principal actor of a unipolar global order. Though the U.S. continues to be the undisputed economic and military power in the world, Huntington instead chooses to focus his exposition on the importance of multiculturalism to a valuation of modern war and conflict. The renowned political scientist recognizes the socio-economic strength of the United States and of other great nations
Moreover, the firms can also benefit from the competition against groups of local firms of a relatively homogeneous kind when entering foreign markets. However, with the increasing cultural distance and wider range of host countries, the abovementioned advantages will be weakened or neutralized. At the same time there will be higher levels of complexity and uncertainty for transaction cost, managerial decision-making regarding MNE strategies and organizational choices (Shane et al., 1995), the management of an MNE's portfolio of foreign subsidiaries from a culturally diverse country base (Tihanyi et al., 2005), and human resource management (Schuler, Dowling, & Cieri, 1993). Generally, such increased operational difficulties
MINI REPORT ARE THE BENEFITS OF GLOBALISATION GREATER THAN THE DRAWBACKS? In my perspective, globalisation is a practice by which the world is becoming progressively connected as a result of immensely increased trade and cross culture diversity. Globalisation enhances the use of outsourcing and offshoring products. The biggest companies are now not only national firms but are replaced by multinational corporations with subsidiaries in many countries. Its outcomes in our lives, being intertwined with people in all parts of the world via the food, the dress code, the music, the information we get and the ideas we hold.
