The Mis-Understanding Of “Globalization”

– The Mis-Understanding Of Globalization –

I don’t understand the term, “globalization,” and that’s because I’m unsure of the dynamics, in a global marketplace.

That is to say, in a globalized economy, should US companies compete against one another? Or alternatively, should US companies collectively compete against other countries?

Vladimir Putin recently spoke on globalization, at an international economic forum, mentioning that globalization was causing issues with trade. Later on, during 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 success scarcer 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 a totally foreign entrepreneur, starting businesses abroad and employing native employees…

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 impacted by immigration.

I’ve encountered several people in NYC, who DON’T WANT to oppose immigration, but who also say, “it’s frustrating sometimes when the trains full.” 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, “3rd world model?” Or do American investors simply build a Mcdonalds, in un-developed nations, and then tell everyone to get a job?

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

Nevertheless, I think that in the future, children of all ages, maybe 11 years old and up, should have the ability to live on their own. In conclusion, creating a living wage, independent of a person’s age, I think is the foremost solution towards a globalized economy.
