The Age of Globalization

In the last few decades, companies around the world changes dramatically on how do they do business. Globalisation plays a big part on how they became successful and how this positively affects the economies of their host countries. However, not everyone benefits from this success.

It is obvious that globalisation made a great progress about humanities advancement in almost every aspect of life. The world has become exceptionally productive completing work ten times faster compared to the last century. Companies can run their operations twenty four hours a day, seven days a week by rendering work from their office in one continent to another erasing the boundaries of time zones. Not only the world became more efficient, it has also allow once rival nations to open up their cities to each other, promoting healthier relationships to both countries. A great example is the joint industrial complex in North Korea which are run by companies in the South. It allowed both nations to work hand in hand which in time may unite both countries. Moreover, globalisation improves the lives of people living in third world countries. By allowing foreign companies to invest and build offices to poor countries, their citizens have greater job opportunities which enables them to better support their families.

But globalisation is not an entirely perfect system. There are also negative effects which must be realised. The most prevalent issue on western countries especially in the United States is less job opportunities for their citizens since companies prefer to outsource the service to
countries which provides cheaper labor, increasing the population with no jobs thereby resulting to higher crime rates. Additionally, these companies find ways to lessen their tax obligations to the government by setting up dummy companies to countries where they provide less tax liabilities to foreign companies resulting to loss of income that should have been contributed to the development of their nation. Lastly, globalisation affects the traditional culture of countries. As companies set up guidelines on how do they do business in the workplace, local people will be influenced by these rules which at first seems foreign to them but later will be considered as a norm that may change their views on their custom traditions.

Overall, globalisation provided great help to humanity, but as everything else in this world, nothing is perfect and these imperfections should be acknowledged and improved as well.
