Introduction

'Evaluate the Advantages and Disadvantages of Globalisation around the World' In this Essay I will evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of Globalisation around the World. I will also say what Globalisation is, and also give my opinion on Globalisation and TNC's. Globalisation is basically the concept of spreading a company around the world, for example Nike it started in one country then they spread to other countries and soon the demand grew larger and they had to built factories all over the world to meet that demand. Some people may like this idea as they make money out of this, but some may disagree and not like this idea like workers in poor countries (LEDC's) as they are getting ripped off by the company which they work for. There are some groups who may think Globalisation is a bad thing but there are many groups who think Globalisation is a great thing. ...read more.

Workers around the world also agree with Globalisation as some of them get management jobs in their TNC's and they get good pay. Economists also agree with Globalisation because when the TNC's open factories and branches in poor countries it helps the country to develop, so this mean it this means it helps the country as well as the workers. The World Trade Organisation is another group which agree with Globalisation, they agree because when the companies move around freely and export and import freely it breaks the barriers between nations and it gives them a good choice of the products. Globalisation is not always a good thing it has also got a down side to it is well as some groups may agree such as Politicians, LEDC workers, MEDC workers, Environmentalists, Economists and the people of the world. ...read more.

Conclusion

Economists are also against it as TNC's move most of their profits back home, so they don't help the countries where they have branches. They move the TNC's where there is paid less tax. LEDC's need their own industries but they can't with the TNC's competing with them. Finally the people of the world are also against it because parents think their children are getting spoilt, as there are baseball caps and jeans everywhere and fast food or fizzy drinks. In my opinion Globalisation can be a bad thing as well as a good thing. It can be good for workers who are unemployed and companies that want to make money. It can be a bad thing for poor countries as they exploit the workers and abandon the people if they find somewhere else which is cheaper. To Summarise it I think it can be a bad thing for some groups of people but it can also be a good this for other groups of people. ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.
