The Mis-Understanding Of “Globalization”

– The Mis-Understanding Of “Globalization” –

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

Putin himself recently spoke on globalization, at an international economic forum, mentioning that globalization was causing issues with trade and that, “mirror move politics,” were growing irritating, more or less, and in not so many words. This economic forum covered several bases, but what stood out to me, was that a French politician named Christine Lagarde, was quoted as saying, “sometimes a globalized economy could be ‘unfair.'” (Reference link.)

So what did she mean specifically? “Unfair?”

Is it harder to become successful in China, or Russia? Or 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 furthermore, do you even want a foreigner bringing foreign currency here, and then starting a business, hiring local, native employees?

Because to me, it seems somewhat improper, to an extent…. to have totally foreign entrepreneurs, starting a business in a foreign country, employing native employees…… It just doesn’t feel right, from my own personal experiences.

And vice versa.

Should I be working for a foreign entrepreneur, in my own country? What if they don’t even 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 in lower class jobs is impacted by immigration. I’ve had several conversations with people in NYC, who DO NOT WANT to oppose immigration, but who often 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 a difficult situation. You hear many New Yorker’s say, they do not want to support Trump’s immigration policy, but they understand his platform. Furthermore, some states are unaffected by it, so it’s a situation where it’s a very touchy subject matter.

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

What is the economy like in developing nations? Is there, “a set model?” Or does Warren Buffet just build a Mcdonalds in Africa and then tell everyone to get a job?

And in conclusion… what about children? 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 frustrations as well. (A 32 year old law school dropout, shouldn’t be competing with 19 year old immigrants, for jobs. *With exceptions of course.)

Still, I think in the future, children of all ages, perhaps 11 years and older, should have the ability to live on their own. Furthermore, to create a living wage which isn’t biased of a person’s age, I think is the foremost solution to globalization.
