The life that Victor created was not able to fit into society correctly, but was also too powerful to be destroyed. The creation was so powerful in fact that Victor, its own creator, was even horrified by it. One of the questions Victor asks himself is “Had I right, for my own benefit, to inflict this curse upon everlasting generations” (Shelley 220)? This is a good foreshadowing of what was to come of technology in the future. It sets the idea that technology has a long term effect on the world, and those who created it are the ones who must integrated it wisely into society.
There are some pros to globalization as Mike Collins states that, "supporters of globalization argue that it has the potential to make this world a better place to live in and solve some of the deep-seated problems like unemployment and poverty." (Collins, 2015) But then continues with some points that seem more valid to me, "The general complaint about globalization is that it has made the rich richer while making the non-rich poorer"(Collins, 2015) and "Globalization is deindustrializing America as we continue to outsource both manufacturing blue collar and white collar jobs. "(Collins, 2015) Because we are in a whirlwind of globalization we loosing jobs ourselves. In the perspective of third world's countries, it is shown to give many opportunities for employment, but what large corporations won't tell you is that they are exploiting the smaller less industrialized and causing havoc and damage to them. For instance, China's pollution rate is
Cole argues that immigration stimulates the economy by creating new jobs and contributing billions in revenue each year. He also argues that immigrants create more in taxes paid than the government funded services they partake in. Cole argues that illegal immigrants are not allowed to receive most benefit programs anyway. Chiswick disagrees and argues that immigration is hurting the economy. He states by having so many of them taking up the low-skilled working jobs in America they are actually creating an increase in wage inequality.
Some believe population growth is key to a healthy economy, the more people in a country, the more money there is to circulate. Numerous people believe that undocumented immigrants contribute to the U.S. economy in multiple ways. By taking essential jobs, helping U.S. businesses through their purchases of goods and services, and by paying taxes. A lot reason that allowing undocumented immigrants to become legal would let them change jobs without difficulty. It is thought that with better jobs, immigrants’ wages would increase and their economic power as consumers and taxpayers would rise as well.
The bulk of corporations prioritize their wealth over the condition of the Earth beneath them. Economic growth is important for the people, yes; it is how we develop as a society, but at what cost? The Earth takes the brunt of society 's success, and denying the inevitable will not stop it from occurring. In fact, denying climate change will only harm society and the Earth further; because by denying it, those who deny climate change are willingly aiding the damage and the danger climate change brings. Climate change is denied is due to the prioritization of business and the economy.
Laws are the key to having a well-mannered society. They are created with the intention of bringing good to the civilization. However, even actions with good intentions can end with devastating results. This is what occurs in Kurt Vonnegut Jr.’s “Harrison Bergeron”. “Harrison Bergeron” is about a dystopian- like future that has had citizens stripped of their individuality due to an Amendment.
And a number of studies have sought to isolate the independent effect of openness. Lucas, et al. (1992), study the toxic intensity implied by the composition of manufacturing output, and find that trade-distorting policies increase pollution in rapidly growing countries. Dean (2002) finds on net a beneficial effect of liberalization for a given level of income. Antweiler, Copeland and Taylor (2001) and Copeland and Taylor (2001, 2003, 2004) also conclude that the net effect of trade liberalization on SO2 concentrations was beneficial.
The working conditions along with the societal lack of representation not only puts workers ' in constant danger, it also feeds wealth inequality. Seeing poverty as a man made phenomenon rather than a self inflicted wound helps us to understand the greater danger of globalization: a feudal order of corporations intent on profits as opposed to a sustainable, fair
globalization has profound effects on the U.S economy as well as job security. One key impact of globalization is that jobs in the fields of technology, customer service, accounting and finance are getting outsourced, to cut costs, which increases unemployment. While businesses are entering new markets, making greater profits, the average American citizen does not benefit from flourishing businesses, only stakeholders and businesses owners do. There soon will be a larger shortage of doctors and nurses since it’s expensive to pursue a career as a doctor. The highest economic growth is occurring in Brooklyn and NYC, in the healthcare and technology industries.
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.
