What is globalisation?

Globalisation is a procedure that has been developing a lot all of the world since 1990’s. The huge cause of globalization is MNC’S

(Multi National Companies). MNC’S are  companies that expand all over the world and tries to take the lead of the markets. These factors (of expansion) may affect the countries in many ways. There are many effects of MNCs but the most effected resources are society, economy and environment.This makes the world become a global village because people start losing their own cultures for western cultures (like: America.). This might have a lot of positive and negative impacts on peoples live through the world. MNCs achievements is to destroy the traditional cultures and make money this is why they spend a lot of money on advertisements so when people travels any where they can still see it.

A paragraph to view whether globalisation is good or bad:

 

Globalisation is both good and bad. The positive impacts about globalisation, it allows communications between people, and economy developing, more opportunities for people to get employed and it closes gap between rich and poor countries. The negative impacts about globalisation are wars occurring because of the widening gap between rich and poor people, nature being destroyed from the pollution of the companies, cheap labour, more unemployment, and Multinationals ruling the world and taking the lead of the markets. At the end globalisation is both positive and negative these factors effect society and the environment.
