The Mis-Understanding Of “Globalization”

– The Mis-Understanding Of “Globalization” –

I personally don’t understand, “globalization.” If this is a, “global marketplace,” then should US companies compete with one another? Or should they collectively compete against other countries?

Putin recently spoke on globalization, at an international economic forum, mentioning that globalization was causing issues with trade. Later on, at that same forum, a French politician named Christine Lagarde, was quoted as saying, “sometimes a globalized economy could be ‘unfair.'” (Reference link.)

But what did she mean specifically? “Unfair?”

Is it harder to become successful in; China or Russia? The US? Or the UK? And should success carry over at all, from nation to nation?

Is it harder to get rich in other countries and how do you know? And what are the ethics behind foreign investments?

Because to me, it seems somewhat imperialistic… to have totally foreign entrepreneurs, starting businesses abroad, employing native employees…… It just doesn’t feel right, from my own personal experiences.

And vice versa.

Should I be working for foreign entrepreneurs, in my own country? What if they don’t speak English? Which I’ve personally experienced, living in NYC. Immigration and jobs is one of those issues, that I can personally attest from the street level, impacts different people differently. In Detroit, there is no Latin population, but in; California, NY, Florida and Texas, employment is heavily impacted by immigration. I’ve had several conversations with people in NYC, who DON’T WANT to oppose immigration, but also say, “it’s frustrating sometimes.” People don’t want to build a wall, but when you lose a job because of minorities, “cliquing up,” in the job market, or any specific field…. it becomes more complex. Furthermore, some states are unaffected by it, so it’s a difficult subject matter to cross.

And what about 3rd world countries? What’s, “the ladder like there,” socio-economically?

What’s the economy like in developing nations? Is there, “a set model?” Or does Warren Buffet, or other American investors, simply build a Mcdonalds in Africa, and then tell everyone to get a job?

And in conclusion… what about children? Because in my opinion, the universal solution to globalization is living wages. However, also, I think that the ability for children to seek refuge and perhaps live on their own, at a far younger age, might go a long way towards curtailing economic frustrations, as well. (A 32 year old law school dropout, shouldn’t be competing with young immigrants, for jobs. *With exceptions of course.)

Still, I think in the future, children of all ages, perhaps 11 years old and up, should have the ability to live on their own. In conclusion, to create a living wage, without bias towards a person’s age, I think is the foremost solution to globalization.
