I think that with the help of globalization, endangered languages will slip away less frequently. With the documentation of languages, they are less likely to slip into oblivion because more people would acknowledge it even if they don't speak it. L.S.

Freakonomics: What Will Globalization Do to Languages?

Freakonomics: What Will Globalization Do to Languages? | International Marketing |

"The headline says it all, although the unspoken question is: will globalization indeed result in the hegemony of English, as has long been promised/threatened?"  This is a forum with Christian Rolling (U.N. interpreter), Mark Liberman (Linguistics professor at Penn), Henry Hitchings (author of 'Secret Life of Words'), and John Hayden (president of an ELL site).

Globalization and New Opportunities for Growth

Globalization and New Opportunities for Growth | International Marketing |
In this uncertain world, companies will need to look beyond the obvious to achieve growth


Is your company playing it safe? In today’s complex, globalized world, that’s not unusual.


Most companies are sticking to obvious locations for investment and refusing to take risks in an uncertain environment. But it’s also risky to stand still while competitors race by.


A fresh look at globalization

Globalization isn’t what it used to be. The cross-border integration of business continues, but it’s slowing. The BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India and China) are no longer the non-stop growth engines they once were. Companies need to look beyond the obvious choices and explore dynamic and different investment destinations, such as rapid-growth markets other than the BRICs.

Reading this article gave me a good perception of the decisions being made in regards to overseas trading; Globalization. I always knew that with great risk comes great reward, therefore the more you risk the more you will receive. But turn it around and you could end up losing millions of dollars if the choice falls short of success. In todays economy I believe its very important to be connected, because America doesn't have all the goods and services that we see everyday, most of them come from overseas countries big and small, poor and rich. The diversity of the world is so great that everyone has their fair share when it comes to globalization. Supply and demand is always a topic of discussion, especially when it comes to needs and wants.

Globalization has connected the world in such a way that we hadn't thought possible. This idea has created rising economies all over the world and has made transport of goods and services move faster and continues to increase this rate with advances in technology. Containerization is a staple of globalization and without it, none of these products would be able to get from country to country. In essence it has developed the world of import and exports. To add to this success, globalization has also created jobs and communities which revolve heavily around the transport of goods. It saves time by using massive containers to move goods and it creates opportunities in places where it had not been possible before.

I believe this video is very interesting. It tells us that everything we have today is thanks to globalization and the reason we have it so fast is because of shipping containers! In the video it told me that before my time it was impossible to get swordfish from Japan or cheeses from France, but now thanks to globalization it is all possible. Globalization is even behind the reason how our phones were made!

The economies of scale that globalization depends on, relies on logistics and transportation networks that can handle this high-volume.  In a word, the container, as mundane as it may seem, facilitated the era within which we live today.  This is a very useful video.
