Globalisation refers to “greater movement of people, goods, capital and ideas due to increased economic integration which in turn is propelled by increased trade and investment”. – Australian global education forum.

Globalisation pixel gun 3d cheats “describes the process by which regional economies, societies and cultures have become integrated through a global network of communication, transportation and trade” – Wikipedia. Globalisation is driven by a combination of economic, technological, sociocultural and political factors and has increased greatly in pixel gun 3d cheat tool the last two decades due to improved technologies and a reduction of barriers. Other influences include trade, Foreign Direct Investment, migration and the spread of technology.

Companies now try to produce goods in countries with the cheapest labour and Ireland has lost many multinationals to locations in Asia. Finance has become more readily available pixel gun 3d and companies have been able to borrow on the worldwide financial markets. On the industrial scale there has been an emergence of worldwide production methods and broader access to foreign products which has led to increased cooperation between companies in different countries.

With regard to culture eg. Hollywood films being shown in developing countries there is a fear that local culture will pixel gun 3d cheat be lost. Some say that multiculturalism promotes peace and understanding between people and others view globalisation as bringing a shift to a new form of monoculture ie pixel gun 3d hacks the obliteration of culture as we know it today.

Technical improvements in relation to the internet, Social Media and Global Information Systems and global telecommunication systems infrastructure have led to increased communication for many people but those who do not have access to this technology are left behind.

Negative effects of Globalisation include the fact that some countries have not been able to take advantage of the opportunities that it presents. In certain countries the standard of living has dropped. The environment has been harmed as agricultural, forest, fishing and mining industries pixel gun 3d cheats tool exploit inadequate environmental codes and corrupt behaviour in developing countries. The major economic powers have a large influence on instruments of globalisation such as the World Trade Organisation and this can work against developing countries. Companies move to countries where labour is cheap and if the labour laws improve they up sticks and move to another location.

Some countries complain of decreased sovereignty in decision making as a result of globalisation.

Migration has spread diseases such as pixel gun 3d hack tool HIV/AIDS and TB and modern communications have spread an awareness of the differences between countries and increased the demand for migration to richer countries. The continent of Africa has suffered a “brain drain” because of migration.

I think it would be fair to pixel gun 3d hack say that the Western World has benefited from globalisation but developing countries have not been as fortunate.
