    • It used to be that…
      • When I was growing up, my Dad would say, “Finish your dinner, people in India and China are starving.”
      • My advice to you is, “Finish your homework – people in China and India are starving for your jobs”
      Shift Happens …
      • A group of American tourists arrived in Italy not long ago. “Amazing!” one said to their tour guide, a friend of mine: “You have pizza here too.” A group of Japanese Boy Scouts landed in Chicago. “Amazing!” they told their troop leader. “They have McDonald’s here too.”

    • What is Globalization?
      • Process by which regional things become global; the increasing interconnectivity of the world and its people
      • It happens through:
        • trade
        • foreign investment
        • migration
        • spread of technology
      • Results in:
      • A “woven world” – are we losing our sense of boundaries?
      • Interdependence - A relationship among countries in which they depend on one another for resources, goods, and services.
      • C hanging cultures
        • when cultures receive outside influences, they ignore some and adopt others
        • ie. “bhangra pop” in India
    • Has our definition of “culture” changed?
      • “ Culture,” anthropologist James Watson has commented, “is not something that people inherit as an undifferentiated bloc of knowledge from their ancestors. Culture is a set of ideas, reactions, and expectations that is constantly changing as people and groups themselves change.”
