After the XVI century, Europe had a resurgence that allowed their nations to explore the world. European nations looked for how to extend its political and military power among the world. However, economic power appears as an important matter for the Empires´ maintenance and hence, trade appeared as a tool to create such Economic control. European Empires found opportunities to develop trade in Asian countries that faced instability. Developing political agreements in order to establish monopolies was the initial stage for future trade companies’ economic expansion. However, these companies success was also founded in their ability to maintain such monopolies according to their businesses structures.
As a good song, it is important to take a broad view of songs. The songs consist of the lyrics and the tune, but also of all the contexts in which a song is created, experienced, produced, and consumed.

Forces, during the early 20th century or possibly longer, have been metaphorically fighting tooth and nail just to bring the entire world under the reign of one single government. The belief or ideology that a single one world government should be in place is called globalism while the opposite ideology is referred to as isolationism or nationalism. In a speech given by former CEO of Caterpillar Inc., Jim Owens (2006), where he publicly showed his and the company’s appreciation for globalism “…we must believe that we can compete on the world stage. We must look at globalization and international competition as an opportunity to make ourselves stronger and more efficient—and not, as some are proposing, as a reason to turn inward and put up barriers

The idea of “Globalisation” has successfully brought people and nations of the world together by the increased of non-territorial social activities, the growing speed of transportations and communications, and the rise of cross-border interconnections. Globalisation is everywhere, it is a combination of environment, culture, society, politics and economy.
For any country that wants to survive in the toughest of times, they need to have good trading capabilities. Very few countries are able to sustain themselves without indulging in intensive trade with other countries. Trading has been considered a good thing in the past, but with the changing world, there are doubts about the benefits of trading. There are some factors that lead to the development of trade networks between countries. When people started to settle in larger towns, the idea that you had to produce absolutely everything for survival, began to fade. People started to trade with countries far away for different types of products. Then, countries started to work the same way. They realized that they could acquire goods they didn't
Benjamin Franklin said, “No nation was ever ruined by trade.” During the early modern era, technological advancements in shipbuilding and increased knowledge on wind and current patterns made global trading possible. The increased flow of trade in the 1300s through 1800s created important social relations and economic opportunities due to the increased integration of foreign people and desire to be wealthiest and most powerful, while improving government, culture, and ideas in the modern world.
Nowadays people can communicate easily. They can share their ideas, their cultures even with people who are not in their countries. They can trade, transporting products around the world in just a few days. This is a big economy where everything related to each other. This is globalization.
In the early 21st century, those living in the developed world encounter the effects of globalisation on a daily basis. On a most basic level, from the Internet to the food that is consumed, it is possible to instantly access a different part of the world. Globalisation has also affected lives in ways that are not instantly obvious – views, beliefs and attitudes shaped by globalisation have changed how the world is perceived. Globalisation is different in the 21st century to how it was in the 20th century, and though the most underlying difference is the rapid development of technology, there are subtle ways in which it has changed – and ways in which it has not changed at all.
Throughout the last decades, globalization became a real phenomenon, but history tells us that it is actually not a new social, historical phenomena, but has, under different names and manifestations, been with us for a long time. It is actually not only the continuation of the liberalization of international trade, which began in the mid-19th century with the launch of cross-border trade over long distances and later with intensive large-scale mobility of labor and capital. During capitalism, globalization has amplified due to the lust for profit, which is driven by capitalists across the globe. Indeed, globalization has significantly strengthened ever since. Today it is almost impossible to talk about goods produced in a
Throughout this period, intra-European trade both rose dramatically and constituted a vast portion of global commerce. Moreover, economic integration became sufficiently extensive that, by the turn of the twentieth century, Europe had begun to function as a single market in many respects. The industrial revolution and technological advances attendant to it that facilitated inter-state commerce clearly had pronounced effects on European integration; but so did the creation of various customs unions and bilateral trade agreements. Besides the well-known German Zollverein, the Austrian states established a customs union in 1850, as did Switzerland in 1848, Denmark in 1853, and Italy in the 1860s. The latter coincided with Italian statehood, not an atypical impetus to the initiation of a PTA in the nineteenth century. In addition, various groups of nation-states forged customs unions, including Sweden and Norway and Moldavia and
Just a year prior to painting American Gothic, Wood was witness to the crash of the stock market, marking the end of six years of enormous prosperity in the USA. The economy stalled and tension built up amongst the people. To broaden the scope, across the Atlantic ocean, fascism began gaining followers and taking power. As a result a political ideology was developed. More people felt the need to go back to older times, to a more primitive and rural kind of life. This return to a more familiar and reassuring time was in line with a feeling of distress and fear of globalization and industrialization. Internationalism had lost its appeal and it was now considered as something extremely dangerous: the root of all evil and the cause of European
Globalization has integrated and intertwined the economies of the world. In the world today, every nation has become independent on every other nation, be it through trade or through finance. Developing countries today are attracting large rounds of foreign investment, and this foreign investment is coming from the developed countries. Thus, the money of the developed countries is today invested in the developing countries.
The founding of WTO in 1995 increased the conflict between economic globalisation and the protection of social norms until now because of WTO aims at further trade liberalisations. While there is no universally agreed definition of globalization, economists typically use the term to refer to international integration in commodity, capital and labour markets. There are many impacts that existed after the introducing of WTO.
