We are so caught up with trying to act and think like the rest of the world and being like everybody else we have stopped being who we are. Things have not changed for the better but deteriorated so that we no longer know our neighbours,have no say in our own lives,have lost most of our homegrown industries and farmland to overseas interests and kowtow to America instead of choosing what is in the interest of our own country and people.

We can't buy in China, Japan or Korea. We can hold 40% of the interest in a property in the Philippines & 49% in Thailand. Try buying in the middle east, yet there us no problem with us being bought out - of course, we can't discriminate against them... Reply

Holly chippy says: Globalisation Pro- An industry in itself of major player companies and smaller innovative companies able to reach a global audience has been a great advantage to such companies involved in achieving it.
Globalisation con-Allowing only a certain few industries and major player companies to expand there portfolio and assets growing well above an elite standard. Does globalization help everyone, NO- Globalisation can only work for a few not all players in business or other areas of expansion? Like any region, there is only a certain amount of who and what can reach such targets. Thus cripple the smaller innovative business to be contained well under the financial capabilities of becoming major players in the global business.
EXAMPLE- oil industries- Too big to create innovative new ways energy uses as all new innovation inventers are bought out of there patients and these patients are withheld from commercial production un till such major companies have exhausted natural or current supplies of creating their income through there industry. Also, such patents providing free energy such as TESLA are stolen by governments, held in record rooms for generations until new ways of exploitation can be managed at a monetary use of continued consumption.
EXAMPLE- Data for internet- Data is an invisible income collection. Satellites do not need the income produced to maintain such items as new MICROSATELLITES are being made to service and be sent into orbit at extremely cheaper costs than the previous size of satellite costs. This Data cost will never change even though through innovation we have created ways to spend less on items that can last upwards of 50 to 100 years in the atmosphere with no pressure, wind erosion, water erosion etc.
Summary-
Globalisation should have remained a government factor to give all people around the world cheaper option for creatins of new innovations without the set back of being held back by trying to afford the basic necessities of such needs to create innovative ideas for living studies, food production studies, basic knowledge ie learning online by use of data usage to access information.
My personal thoughts on globalization- As A world society, we need to take back what governments have kept away from us in gaining the basic right to explore, use free data for knowledge to explore such options. As a world society, we are giving our own governments freedom to commercialize our basic rights as Human beings to slow the poorest for the richest of families to continue to be on top of knowledge and exploration in every field...
Globalisation is only effective if we the people can make it free for us all in every country... That is where Globalisation should stop, as between the billions of us living in parts of this ROUND world, we know we are all equals if given the opportunity.
Such an opportunity can only be achieved by a GLOBAL UNIFICATION of ALL COMMUNITIES in every country we breathe and bleed upon.
Sincerely,

RICH countries, companies and individuals access to cheaper resources and new markets
POOR " " " " " no change, but the promise of "trickle down theory" which only works in the minds of the wealthy.

The rich get richer and the poor get poorer.

The benefit of Globalisation is we get more of what we can do without.
The disadvantage is that the stuff we already have in abundance and the stuff we need, becomes more expensive.

Corporate greed is what drives globalisation in my opinion, just take a look at how many other brands/companies worldwide are own by the likes of Coca Cola, Mars, Nestle or Pepsi.
As a keen sci-fi fan I see this a only leading to the popular theme of a One World government owned by corporations. That thought makes ponder that most governments are already populated by people with links or debts to large corporations.
I am just glad that I am old enough to have grown up and lived in a much simpler time and wont be around to see the coming mess, maybe George Orwell was just a little premature with his date?
