The picture that is shown her I can say it a picture of Globalization because in the picture it describe a lot that the US and China likes each other but in the other hand the US want to destroy China and China wants to eliminate the US. However this shows a side of globalization because even the two countries hate each other they cant leave each other because there is already a business and organization made and they can’t break it because the US likes trading with China for all the material goods and industrial things they give us and China likes trading US for things. Below the picture you can see the cartoon saying it’s getting harder for either side to walk away because they both need each other even if they want to shoot bullet holes in each other.

“ Look what I can do on either side but we need each other”

This picture is a picture of globalization which describe this phenomenon affects the economy, business life, society and environment in different ways, and almost all corporations have been affected by these changes. These changes are mostly related to increasing competition and the rapid changes of technology and information transfer. To challenge these changes, companies need to keep in mind various aspects of the main effects of globalization.

Also I see this as negative because apart from us there are people that want to improve much better as us which leads to competition and increasing and finding better ways to make money and trade and power so we stay on top.

People are apart of globalization because we make this happen and without us there no world and nothing period. We are part of globalization no matter what color we are; we create and make which make kids and it continues we multiply the population. This affect people in a bad way because of all the polluted chemical we have and that’s in the air it kills us a lot which is bad for us as a human being. In addition , we communicate more to people.

Technological globalization is speeded in large part by technological diffusion, the spread of technology across borders. In the last two decades, there has been rapid improvement in the spread of technology to peripheral and semi-peripheral nations, and a 2008 World Bank report discusses both the benefits and ongoing challenges of this diffusion. In general, the report found that technological progress and economic growth rates were linked, and that the rise in technological progress has helped improve the situations of many living in absolute poverty (World Bank 2008). The report recognizes that rural and low-tech products such as corn can benefit from new technological innovations, and that, conversely, technologies like mobile banking can aid those whose rural existence consists of low-tech market vending. In addition, technological advances in areas like mobile phones can lead to competition, lowered prices, and concurrent improvements in related areas such as mobile banking and information sharing.
However, the same patterns of social inequality that create a digital divide in the United States also create digital divides within peripheral and semi-peripheral nations. While the growth of technology use among countries has increased dramatically over the past several decades, the spread of technology within countries is significantly slower among peripheral and semi-peripheral nations. In these countries, far fewer people have the training and skills to take advantage of new technology, let alone access it.
However, technology helps us get to where we are going faster such as using apps that can track our diet, or location, and emailing people who are far away from you.
A major characteristic of globalization in developing countries is an acceleration of urbanization, with an influx of people well beyond the capacity of cities to absorb them. Work is underway towards building a conceptual understanding of the impact of urbanization and global change on household food security and the nutritional status of individuals in urban areas. Food systems around the world are changing, resulting in a potential for greater availability of food as well as greater diversity of food choices, with markets becoming global. In developing countries, competition for market share of food purchases is arising from entry into the system of new players such as large multinational fast food and supermarket chains. These changes to food systems are having a substantial impact on the food and nutritional security of both producers and consumers. This impact is being felt on the availability and access to food, through changes to food production, procurement and distribution systems, the food trade environment, and overall food culture.
Food is part of globalization because food has been traded from place to place for trade and for the people.
The aim of globalization is to benefit individual economies around the world by making markets more efficient, increasing competition, limiting military conflicts, and spreading wealth more equally.
Positive things:Greater free trade.
• Greater movement of labour.
• Increased capital flows.
• The growth of multinational companies.
• Increased integration of global trade cycle.
• Increased communication and improved transport, effectively reducing barriers between countries.
Globalization dealing with wealth I can say such as trading and money traveling from place to place for products. Globalization is the idea of companies to send jobs overseas to those who will work for less. Globalization is the ability to go to McDonald’s in China and eat a Big Mac that tastes as if you ate it on your homeland. Globalization allows you go on Facebook to communicate with your exchange partner in Germany in a matter of seconds. However, globalization can be defined even broader that includes all aspects it influences.
The effects on HDI of national symbols like national flag colors are unstable, while those of globalization are strong, with social globalization having the strongest effect. The results suggest that national symbols are important to national well-being, but nations gain more from global interactions with other nations than from national pride. Even as there is a need for further research to improve upon the results associated with the effects of national symbols, the policy implications of the findings clearly recommend increased investment in material conditions of nations and globalization.
Flags are part of globalization because it shows the different countries and tribes that live in other places and different languages that separate and link people together.
This picture is part of Globalization because it shows us the way how things were back then in history where people had to travel by foot to get to one place to the next and also how the knights, and Romans back in history had to use horses to send information or letters. However Globalization had happen were we still do these things but not like before because we have cars and planes that can take us to one country and the next.
Transportation is the industry that connects other industries … it is the key to globalization.”
Today, the rise of Internet commerce is driving the expansion of the global marketplace, underscoring the need for a transportation system that is international in reach.
Faster and cheaper transportation systems allow multinational corporations to build manufacturing facilities across the globe while maintaining scheduled, frequent deliveries of parts and finished products. For example, advances in the aviation system allow businesses to substitute just-in-time deliveries from remote manufac-turing plants in place of large inventories.
Today, about one-third of world trade consists of shipments between branches of multinational companies [UN Annual].
most significant development in the world economy has been the globalization of economic activities. Globalization has been the outcome of four key processes that have shaped and changed the pattern of economic activities within nations and around the globe:
1. expanding political cooperation among countries,
2. changing strategies of transnational corporations,
3. dynamic interactions between businesses and states, and
4. rapid technological advancement.
Through a complex set of interactions, these processes have dramatically increased interdependence within the world economy.

looking at this picture shows me something like this world is slowly dying because of Globalization. In addition, to this I say that because there are negative aspects that happen which is this job insecurity, culture that’s bad, labor, and weapons. Also another bad thing I say climate change and too much chemical in the air which affect the people and lead to death. This also cause plants and animals in danger in the world.

Connecting with people on the other side of the world is now much easier than it was a few years ago. Satellites, fiber-optic cables and the internet make it effortless to share information with those in different time zones and locations. Global communication is directly affected by the process of globalization, and helps to increase business opportunities, remove cultural barriers and develop a global village. Both globalization and global communication have changed the environmental, cultural, political and economic elements of the world.
Technology also makes it easier to connect with suppliers and customers all over the world, and to streamline those relationship through improves ordering, shipment tracking and so on. With this kind of communication technology, many businesses are able to take advantage of opportunities in different countries or cities, improving the economic outlook on a global level.
Thanks to global communications, information itself can be transferred as a valuable business asset from one country to another. This has the effect of making everyone’s operations more modern and efficient, regardless of where they are located. We can see this alliances making agreements .
Globalization and global communication have made it easier to see people on the other side of the world as a neighbor, instead of a stranger from a faraway land. There is so much knowledge about other countries and cultures available online, that it’s no longer a complete mystery.

This picture shows the different types of Globalization and how we in the United states have McDonalds but in other countries they might have the same restaurant but the taste will be different and they may have something that we might not have depending on there belief or religion. Also the  Increased trade in the international economy has also contributed to the globalization of goods, services, and ideas. … Globalization has influenced music, clothing styles, and food. McDonald’s has become a symbol of globalization bringing their famous Big Mac and french fries to billions of people worldwide.

Travel and tourism due to modern transportation have exposed travelers to new ideas and new cultures. Globalization has influenced music, clothing styles, and food. McDonald’s has become a symbol of globalization bringing their famous Big Mac and french fries to billions of people worldwide.

A McDonald’s Global Menu

Many of menu items that one can find in the US can also be found at world locations. On the right, is a McDonald’s located in Japan.


McDonald’s caters to their local population by adding menu items that are specific to that region. For example, in Japan you can eat a Teriyaki Mac Burger (see photo on the right) which is a “juicy pork burger with a garlicky Teriyaki glaze, lemon sauce and lettuce”. Due to globalization, there are now 36,525 locations around the world.
