Globalization is deeply controversial, however. Proponents of globalization argue that it allows poor countries and their citizens to develop economically and raise their standards of living, while opponents of globalization claim that the creation of an unfettered international free market has benefited multinational corporations in the Western world at the expense of local enterprises, local cultures, and common people.

Gender inequality and discrimination can affect women in a greater extent than men. In the globalization process, gender differences in terms of decision making and participation should be taken into account in order to achieve gender equality. It is very important to have a systematic monitoring on gender impact to achieve the goals of companies without sacrificing gender capabilities. Studies on the effects of gender relations and globalization are well documented for us to analyze the perspective of globalization and its effects to women in terms of their economic and social functions. However, it is still very important to have further research to evaluate the impact of globalization on other aspects of life which can influence gender relations and issues.

By having a computer, phone and television, I am connected to globalization because I am contributing information and learning about global or political issues happening around the world.
Globalization is defined as the process of integration across world-space arising from the interchange of worldviews, products, ideas, and other aspects of culture.
Globalisation is a very complex term with various definitions, in business terms, “globalization describes the increasingly global nature of markets, the tendency for transnational businesses to configure their business activities on a worldwide basis, and to co-ordinate and integrate their strategies and operations across national boundaries” (Stonehouse, Campbell, Hamill and Purdie, 2004, p....
Being a citizen of Alberta, this process of exporting oil and gases connects me to globalization because Alberta is contributing to the global flow of products.
The pro-globalization critics argue that the benefits that globalization brings to developing nations surpasses or outcasts the negative impacts caused by globalization and may even go a step further to state that it is the only source of hope for developing nations to prosper and stand...
Globalization is driven by international trade, which means Alberta is contributing to economic development around the word as well as potential prosperity.
The reason I took a picture of a gas station to symbolize oil and gas, is because with our industry in Alberta, many of the citizens are interacting with people and companies around the world.
Globalization was the source of the Great Depression (See globalisation-and-great-depressions) even though there was no word for this evil in those days.
