  GLOBALIZATIONWhen you start to talk about globalization you might be talking about a word thathave many definitions, that depends on which area are you in. For example, thereare manydiffirent topics, such as: economy, finance, consumption, capitalism, socialism,culture, religion, among others, where the word “globalization” can fit in. But fornow I’ll only talkabout some facts. Globalization is a process of global economical, political andcultural integration. Its major characteristic features are capitalism expansions,global labordivision, migration of financial, human and production resources within the planet,standardization of legislation, economic and technological processes, as well asremovingthe borders between cultures of various countries. But does globalization can be agood factor for the world development on all it’s dimensions? Well, that’s areally hardquestion to be answer, but in somehow, and in my personal opinion, I can say that,globalization is not a force that may abolish traditions, religions, and why nothistory.By: Laura GalindoMarch 30/2009In these new era, the world is facing so many changes, Internet is a great toolfor everyone, and no one can deny it, and of course alltechnology that the world is making continously every single day, is perhaps forour own comsuption, and service. But have you ever thought if those advantageswhichare really important for yourself, where made just to satisfy the pokets of richpeople who careless about enveriomental issues or people’s explotation?. Obvioslyyoumay not be that dramatic, and furthermore that it is not the only problem of theinternationalization. With every passing day, the world is becoming smaller, andthe globalizationprocess is taking place. Advances in communication, transportation, genetics, andcomputer technology have all played a role in making the world a smaller place.With the rightequipment, people can talk to friends and family from the other side of the world.Traveling from America to China, which once required months at sea, now only takeshours inthe air. Computer networking and fax machines allow world businesses to conductnegotiations and money transactions, within a matter of seconds. Images such astheMcDonalds’s golden arches and Mickey Mouse are recognized worldwide. Yet, whileglobalization is taking place, it is not doing so without dispute. Many countries,in fact, feelthreatened by Western culture and consequently, are acting out to preserve theirown identities. That’s what I call “Cultural globalization”. People around worldmoves from aplace to an other everyday, exchanging manners, likes, foods, ideas, whatever.That would be probably why we may find a chinnese restaurant in Berlin, ordirections on ourcity’s library in more than 3 languages! Globalization has much more dimensions  and we can find something positive in every single one, but it brings ecologicalthreats, religiousconflicts, cultural unification and many more biting problems. Globalization isnatural and irrecoverable process and we cannot do anything against it, but weshould, at least,keep it in our minds.Small distances!JASKARAN SINGH CHHINA+919780632856
