Immigration is an attribute of economic and social life throughout many nations, but the portrayal of immigrant residents pretty much varies. Disregarding its origin, immigration has significant effects on our communities, and these can be arguable. The economic influence of immigration is not an exception. Moreover, the United States of America take a leading position as the world’s main destination for immigrants. It is first necessary to explain that immigration enhances the U.S. economy, improves labor productivity, incentives innovation, assists consumers by maintaining low prices, and refines US culture and society.
In other words, immigrants bring with them high levels of human capital, and as such, they can more easily employ that human capital in the labour market compared to other countries. On this point of view, the presence of the multiculturalism policy contributes nothing to the successful integration of immigrants and minorities in Canada, and may in fact impede it (e.g., Goodhart 2008). However, there has been new research which has helped to clarify the role that the multiculturalism policy plays in the broader processes of minority and immigrant integration. This research on the effects that are brought by multiculturalism has evolved at two broad levels:
What researches across the field of sociolinguistics argue is that as long as bilinguals do not internalize any potential conflict between different cultures, they will not experience any linguistic confusion (Chen et al., 2008). The consensus of this study was shown that globalization has a large impact even in places where there tends to be a homogenous concentration of people. Mainland Chinese immigrants, Filipino domestic workers, and multicultural college students all in Hong Kong noted that their ability to use at least English or Cantonese effectively determined their ability to adjust and thrive in the different cultural environment (Chen et al., 2008). What this means for the argument of bilingualism being so closely linked with identity is that by being forced to learn an L2, individuals find themselves more included and part of the group instead of isolated. This allows these individuals in question to pseudo “assimilate” into a culture, and will begin to identify with some aspects of this culture via the use of their
Being able to interact with people from different cultures is a huge social advantage and can open up so many doors in life. Besides, being a bilingual can be helpful when traveling. Obviously, now a days we can travel many countries without speaking the language. Yet it will make your experience much more enjoyable if we do not need translation apps, travel guide book or tour guide . Can you imagine how much more you can experience if you speak the local language of the place where you are visiting?
Cultural globalization is often understood as the spatial diffusion of global products. At a deeper level, cultural globalization may be seen as the contested process of internationalization of values, attitudes and beliefs. The spread of cultural practices and symbols makes the world more the same, but at the same time triggers resistance. Hence, cultural globalization while uniting the world is also seen to strengthen local cultures and is a major force behind the creation of identities. Such homogenization or differentiation can be noticed in the change of cultural practices and consumption patterns over time and space.
Without any doubt one of inevitable parts of 21 is considered globalization. Even Though this term is widely used at present, it is rather difficult to define it properly.Salvatore Puledda defines it as a natural process of economic interaction among different countries and cultures, supported by modern communication technologies. There are heated debates about positive and negative effects of globalization. There are many researchers as Salvatore Puledda who perceive globalization as a threat to cultural diversity or the loss of cultural identity. Nevertheless, this increasing integration of the world or 'globalization' could enrich people’s life and may bring knowledge and information to people around the world.
Cindy you bring up great points. I too feel that imperialism has helped many individuals become more civilized. Imperialism allowed for furthering education, economic growth, and the list continues. There has been many benefits when it comes to imperialism.According to Brower, D., & Sanders, T (2014) "Nineteenth-century Western empires shared important characteristics unique to the age of new imperialism.Each was home to a relatively advanced economy that incorporated the technological skills and productive factories of the Industrial Revolution." In regards to the post underneath by the professor civilized is defined by Webster (2016) as "marked by well-organized laws and rules about how people behave with each other; polite, reasonable,
Imperialism is good because there became more empire and power, money, increase in naval power, better trade, social darwinism, jingoism and god, better life for others. The first document that was read shows how social darwinism, application of survival of fittest to people, and how people ended up with a better life than before. Document one is about how America became great and how imperialism gave them education, running water, and electricity. Document two shows the spread of american territories and marketing U.S goods. America got more territories during the imperialism.
Nowadays, in the light of the development in technology, especially in transportation and media, trade and communication has increased rapidly among countries. This trend is called globalization. Generally speaking, globalization has its own advantages and disadvantages. The development in international trade and communication has created employment and opportunities for millions of people, but it has also made poor countries poorer. In my opinion, globalization has both positive and negative aspects.
Globalization is a process of linking the world through many aspects, from the economic to the culture, the political. in different nations. This process uses to describe the changes in society and in the world economy, by creating a linkage and increasing exchange between individuals, organizations or nations in cultural perspective, economics on global scale (Globalization 101, n.d.). A process of creating many opportunities but also causes many challenges for all the nations in the world, particularly for developing countries. There are so many advantages that globalization brings to developing countries like free trade, technology transfer and reducing unemployment.
As Landgrave and Nowrasteh (2017) illustrate, “Incarceration rates by race and ethnicity paint a more nuanced picture.” (pg. 2). The rhetorical strategy of imagery works in this specific example because it paints a problem with many different perspectives and meanings. In other words, the legalization of DREAMers should be considered because the beneficiaries are less crime-prone than either DREAMers or natives. Landgrave and Nowrasteh (2017) implement imagery into their argument in order to persuade their audience by letting them visualize the amazing and safe future with new members of our country being less crime-prone and previous legal citizens.
I think if this country has any unifying forces at all today, it would be diversity, though in some cases it could turn out to cause disunity rather than unity. I think diversity is a unifying force because it enables us learn and grow through the collaboration of working with people who may think different from you or may have different methods for doing things. Another unifying force I think is present in America today is innovation in the newest technology, or what was known as the Enlightenment in the mid-18th century. As new immigrants move in, they also bring their talents and creative abilities. Through cooperation with Americans here, more is discovered and developed.
