Kenny Dominguez's curator insight, November 20, 2013 4:07 PM


It is amazing how big this warehouse is. This warehouse must be a couple of acres because amazon is a big company that mostly everyone in the world buys from. it is also amazing how organized they are with all the inventory they get. Amazon is a great company that is helping people gets jobs to help improve there lives and also the economy in which is struggling to get back on it knees. I wonder were amazon has found this warehouse because there are not so many that have this much space. The workers must have golf carts to get around from one spot to the other. Amazon keep up the good work.

Online shopping is a great way to get your holiday gifts or just to regularly shop. By online shopping we do not have to go to the mall and walk around in all these different stores. What most people do not realize is when we online shop our orders are being processed somewhere and it is usually in big warehouse buildings. These buildings require a lot of space to hold all of a stores merchandise.

Globalization

The world is becoming more and more interconnected. Globalization changes how people consume, work and live almost everywhere on the world. Today, many economic, political, cultural or ecological relationships are not explainable from a national perspective. At the same time, a controversial debate about the consequences of globalization has begun.

 

Questions to ponder: What are the driving forces behind globalization? What areas are most impacted by globalization?  How does globalization benefit some, and adversely impact others? Why?

After viewing this video the whole notion of globalization has two apperances. The first apperance is the good side in which it helps lower costs for exporting goods and making telophone calls. The reason why this is benefcial is that lower costs for these goods then allows everyone to take part in the buisness aspect of exportation and the personal use\buisness applications that long distance travel as well as phone calls can make on the social, economic world. Lastly with globalization new developing countries are able to expand and help take there respected countries into a better more profitable age. However the second apperance is the negative side of globalization that everything is shipped over from one country to another. Such as jobs that come from the United States but now are over seas in places like China or South Korea. Now they make goods that we buy and need which solidifies there economy, while we create less and buy more which puts us into a dependant alliance with China. Besides our poltical\social impact that globalization causes for us we have to also consider how this effects countries from Africa as well as because with nothing for them to export they must import everything but is too costly since they have nothing or no one to invest money into companies in Africa. The end result is that China become the econmic power house as long as we contine to buy while places such as the African continent suffer due to lack of investment. Overall I find Globalization to be a good thing because it allows for interaction and connections with everyone\place from the world and the main drawback to it is some people still suffer because of a simple thing such as cost and connections.

Globalization as a whole has a positive impact on the economy, politics, and society. As with most advantageous systems there are downfalls. While so much of the world is moving forward with being interconnected, other countries will become more challenged- such as sub-saharan Africa. Hopefully in time globalization will become more equal and all countries/continents will grow through globalization.
