WHAT IS GLOBALIZATION?<br />The trend toward countries joining together economically,<br />Education<br />Society <br />Politics and <br />Viewing themselves not only through their national identity but also as part of the world as a whole. <br />

PROS<br />Pros Of Globalization<br />With globalization, there is a global market for companies to trade their products & a wider range of options for people, to choose from among the products of different nations. <br />Developing countries benefit a lot from globalization, as there is a sound flow of money and thus, a decrease in the currency difference. <br />To meet the increasing demands that follow globalization, there is an increase in the production sector. This gives loads of options to the manufacturers as well. <br />Competition keeps prices relatively low, and as a result, inflation is less likely to occur. <br />
……CONTD<br />The focus is diverted and segregated among all the nations. No country remains the single power head; instead there are compartmentalized power sectors. The decisions at higher levels are meant for the people at large. <br />Communication among the countries is on the rise, which allows for better understanding and broader vision. <br />As communication increases amongst two countries, there is interchange of cultures as well. We get to know more about the other's cultural preferences. <br />As we feed to each other's financial needs, the ecological imbalance is also met . Governments of countries show concern about each other. <br />
CONS<br />Globalization is causing Europeans to lose their jobs as work is being outsourced to the Asian countries. The cost of labor in the Asian countries is low as compared to other countries. <br />The high rate of profit for the companies, in Asia, has resulted in a pressure on the employed Europeans, who are always under the threat of the business being outsourced. <br />Companies are opening their counterparts in other countries. This results in transferring the quality of their product to other countries, thereby increasing the chances of depreciation in terms of quality. <br />
……CONTD<br />There are experts who believe that globalization is the cause for the invasion of communicable diseases and social degeneration in countries. <br />The threat that the corporate would rule the world is on high, as there is a lot of money invested by them. <br />It is often argued that poor countries are exploited by the richer countries where the work force is taken advantage of and low wages are implemented. <br />
CHALLENGES<br />Productivity: Productivity is improved by producing in countries where production is most efficient. However, this often means workers in one country lose jobs as their work moves to more efficient locations.<br />Consumers: Consumers benefit from a wider array of competitively priced goods. However, they have less control over supplies coming from abroad than over goods produced domestically.<br />Employment: Employment may increase as economic growth and specialization take hold. However, domestic employment fluctuates according to foreign conditions (such as economic crises elsewhere that reduce demand for employment domestically).<br />The Environment: As global consumption increases due to globalization, more natural resources deplete. Differing environmental standards across countries create opportunities for businesses to exploit resources in countries with the least amount of environmental protection regulation.<br />
Monetary and Fiscal Conditions: As money moves more freely, it is better able to seek out the best investment opportunities on a global scale. However, governments have less control over the inflow and outflow of funds. Furthermore, capital seems to be flowing more freely to countries with lower tax rates and less regulatory restrictions, putting additional pressures on national fiscal and monetary policies.<br />Sovereignty: Globalization may undermine national sovereignty in two ways: First, contact with other countries creates more cultural borrowing and may dilute a country's cultural uniqueness. Second, countries are concerned that important decisions may be made abroad by foreign owners of domestically located firms.<br />
IMPACT<br />India’s growth rate in the 1970’s was very low at 3% and GDP growth in countries like Brazil, Indonesia, Korea, and Mexico was more than twice that of India.<br /> Though India’s average annual growth rate almost doubled in the eighties to 5.9%, it was still lower than the growth rate in China, Korea and Indonesia.
