Document Summary

More and more, we are seeing groups of people and the place they occupy changing in accord with larger global forces. Globalization increases both the quantities of goods, information, and people moving across national boundaries and the speed with which they do so. Financial homogenization: we can purchase goods/local currency almost anywhere in the world using only one major credit card. The increasing interconnectedness of people and places through converging processes of economic, political, and cultural change. The process of reducing barriers between countries and encouraging closer economic, political, and social interaction. The coming together of businesses and states. An accelerating set of processes involving flows that encompass ever-greater numbers of the world spaces and that lead to increasing integration and interconnectivity among these spaces. Globalization is considered from a cultural, political, and economic perspective. Culturally: certain set of attitudes, beliefs, and behaviours is spreading. Politically: countries working together for strategic reasons.
