Disadvantages of Globalization

Disadvantages of Globalization

Today whatever people want can be bought with the help of the improvement of trading system. Begins with the Silk Road now the earth has a gigantic way for exchanging and that is called globalization. Globalization is a process by which the worlds are unified into a single society and function. It is claimed that globalization supports productivity, cultural intermingling and cash flow into the developing countries; however, there are some disadvantages of globalization that should not be overlooked: unemployment, social degeneration and difficulty of competition.

There was a new code...

First of all, it has been asserted that globalization provides the increasing of productivity and life standard of societies. To begin with productivity is indeed increased as it can be seen that the population of the world is rising rapidly even uncontrollable and more people means that there is a need of more product too. Thus Globalization responds the needs of 7 billion people. Moreover the standards of life is a lot better than 50 years ago as they are more machines and systems invented in developed countries supporting all world. However there is another side of the facts. Globalization causes the poor citizens having more requirements. Secondly cultural intermingling is enlarging with globalization which lets the people from all over the world able to communicate easier. On the other hand sharing traditional behaviors cause them fading as boundaries are disappearing.

The most important disadvantage of globalization is the increasing number of the loafer. After the industrial revolution, industry gravitated some particular countries. Because of that, these countries became a power in industry. However production decreased and so unemployment was raised in the other countries. Another reason of the unemployment rise is that the need of less manpower. As stated at Wikipedia, many workers found themselves suddenly unemployed, as could no longer compete with machines which only required relatively limited work to produce more product than a single worker.

Another major damage of globalization is that some cultures are getting lost. The cultures of the countries that have more economic power are more dominant than others. Because, wealthy countries produce many things that can affect cultures, for example, clothes, movies and technologic products. According to Ikerd, while the global community is increasing, more and more people have became ignorant about social, ethical and moral values which are various in defining groups. (2002) Therefore, globalization damages small cultures which are in risk of being extinct. Big disadvantages.

The final significant effect of globalization is the difficulty of competition. With globalization, trade between the countries has been started to remove limits. This situation of enterprises has prepared the ground to be in constant competition with not only national competitors but also international competitors. Therefore, business requires being in a more rigorous and challenging competitive atmosphere to maintain continuity and development. Rising of monopole companies and trough among production costs are the main effects of this hard competition in business. As pointed in Global Policy Forum, undeveloped countries choose to use foreign capital for their improvement however it disposes the equality and stability instead.

In conclusion, unemployment, social degeneration and difficulty of competition are the killer disadvantages on people life that based on globalization. In my opinion, people must be aware of this exploitation. Globalization is a one-way tale.

Increased flow of skilled and non-skilled jobs from developed to developing nations as corporations seek out the cheapest labor. That's for sure and I urge the people to look beyond the future to try and safeguard themselves from what people of developed countries are doing to them.

nandhini.p 5 years ago

agriculture, the most important sector gets affected by the globalisation. MNC's grab the agricultural lands which ultimately leads in food scarcity.

family system, health, ethics and culture are reduced among the peole.

nothing is harm until it affects the people. we should be wise enough how to make use of it...

My recommendation is that it is a good business for developed countries but for the developing country it may be only a trust without nothing else because the leading country of the world they are getting the highest repayment from 3rd world countries because of its globalization.

kwazi Jali 4 years ago

Globalisation has both positive and negative connotations to the globe, we cannot deny the fact that it has arguably opened doors for developing countries to compete globally, but fighting globalisation is like trying to disperse water of a ship has a whole in the bottom. My view is that instead of swimming against the tide which normally results in sinking, why don't we as underdeveloped countries swim with it..because exploitation is nothing new to us...in simple terms..there are always going to be casualties of change...even in this disguised colonial domination that we now know as "globalisation"

It has very clear indications that globalisation is helping the developing world, and the poorest in these countries. Perhaps the biggest issue here is that middle-income and developed countries are now finding that they have more competition with the developing countries - and the impact that these people see on their lives is what leads to these complaints and protests about globalisation, free trade, etc (how many people who can comment negatively on this article are unable to pay for food to feed themselves?)

Globalization of no doubt have its positive and negetive impact

i think it globalization has lead to legal exploitation of the 3rd world country by the western power....

Its one of there numerious ways of dictating and controling 3rd world countries....to their advantage and to the decrement of the 3world countries......

Which has lead to greater difference between the rich western and the developin countries......
