Political scientists observe globalisation as a procedure which tends to demoralise the nation and rise of the new government. Similarly, socialists inspect globalisation as the spread of a multi-culture and the supervision of the mass-media by large firms (Wall et al., 2010). However, it is the process of becoming the whole world into the single market. Moreover, the goods and service, capital and manpower are taken from the whole world.
