On Globalization
1
The difference between internationalization, transnationalism, and glocalization are that each represents a different aspect of globalization. Glocalization is what happens when international products are adapted to meet the particular needs (cultural or socio-economic) of the locality/community where they are sold. So for example, Nabisco might make Oreo cookies that look and taste one way in the U.S., but when the same company makes the “same” cookie for sale in Asia, it looks and tastes completely different because of cultural expectations that the Asians have regarding how a cookie should look and taste. The company adapts its product to the locality.
Transnationalism describes the way in which products are produced: products are completed in stages, with each stage being completed in a different part of the world; for instance, when a car company like Ford produces an automobile, it will consist of parts that are made in Asia,…… [Read More]

Globalisation and Its Effects

Defining Globalisation

What differentiates the depth and pervasiveness of globalisation in this century compared to previous is the acceleration of cultural issues driven by rapidly changing technologies that impact international trade agreements (Vitell, Nwachukwu, Barnes, 1993). Time is literally compressed to a level never before seen before in globalisation of previous centuries, with drastic impacts on international trade and corresponding management practices. Trade is now much more transactionally-driven and more focused on measurable results in near real-time increments. The transition of commerce from being longer in sales and service cycles to being nearly real time today has major implications on cultural boundaries of communication as well (Hofstede, Jonker, Verwaart, 2012). Globalisation is forcing people together into virtual teams from widely divergent cultures, accelerating assimilation and the need to produce results as shared teams quickly (Hofstede, Jonker, Verwaart, 2012). All of these factors combined are also leading…… [Read More]

Globalisation Weakens the State Discuss

Words: 1954 Length: 6 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 81120941

The private sector thus becomes the most important factor in the decision making process. Unfortunately, as bad as it sounds the fact that states are losing their powers in front of the private sector, globalization has proved to work, at least in the more developed countries. The weakness of a state is the price to pay for a prosper society.

It is true that globalization weakens the state, but this must not necessarily be seen as a bad thing. More important than a powerful government is a powerful economy, which gives people better lives. States that have adopted the rules of international capital market have known economic growth, at various levels. The price that must be paid is that multinational corporations have the power to dictate policies that are in their own interest and not necessarily in the interest of citizens.

However, when speaking of a state in its cultural…… [Read More]
