Hot Discussion: Globalization
Globalization was utilized throughout the mid twentieth century as a strategy to remove trade obstacles that were there due to geographical borders. Bretton woods institutions introduced numerous agreements and treaties concerning trade and the extreme powers unified to form the wonderful economies (G7 and G8 are as known today). The Bretton woods institutions involved International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (World Bank), the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to name a few. The significant treaty that generated open market was the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) (Inda, & & Rosaldo, 2008 p. 41). The agreement seeks to promote open market by the elimination of tariffs, and creation of open market zones, cost decreases, e.g. transportation, capital controls reductions, aid harmonization, decrease or removal, aids productions in cases of global corporations, and intellectual property harmonization.
The management of worldwide capitalism with the policy of finance capital has been central to the development of modern global dynamics (Eichengreen, 1997). From the Bretton Woods agreements in 1944, which resulted in the establishment of the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade, to the Trilateral Commission of the 1960s and 1970s, to the World Trade Organization and the Uruguay Round of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade of this decade, the development of global capitalism has actually been underway in a more or less deliberate way.
Financially the goods and services flow, capital, innovation, and labor are the indications of globalization. Globalization is aimed at the integration of the society in terms of the economy and culture in order to transform lives of residents. Some views globalization as the compression of the world as well as the magnifying of awareness of the whole world. Others see globalization as the radical and commonness that has been experienced throughout the time of capitalism. This is because of the truth that humans are involved in systems of communication and social networks which are all interactive in the whole world leading to capitalism. Others view it as the introduction of capitalism, which changed communism and socialism and brought a brand-new world order (Inda, & & Rosaldo, 2008 p. 45).
Globalization was expected to bring several effects in the world. Firstly was the impact of industrialization; the goods and services might quickly move within borders and people would have much better access to products either abroad or in the country. This resulted in a rise in trade globally. Secondly, countries were to benefit financially where through the trade money would increase flow among people. Third the countries were to benefit economically where an usual global market was attained. 4th was the advantage of countries through health policies. Fifth was the advantage in terms of politics. Sixth were the benefits of improved information systems between continents and countries such as through the internet and phones (LaRosa, & & Mora, 2007 p. 303).
The benefits of language harmonization were to be understood where English, Spanish, and Mandarin were to be utilized internationally in communication. The competition was to be enhanced among countries which would lead to better performance services and goods. The world would have an integrated method of resolving ecological issues, hence reduced climatic contamination. Other benefits included; cultural, social, technical, spiritual and legal/ethical.
These benefits of globalization included more shortcomings than the assumed benefits; they favored the rich and developed countries, while just little development was seen in regards to benefits among the third world and bad people. The rise of the significant issues related to globalizations there arose those whose war versus the negative effects of globalization. Lots of terms have actually been made use of to describe them; anti-globalization movements, global justice movements, alter-globalization, anti-corporate globalization, or anti-liberalism however all describe those who oppose globalization.
