Globalization..good or bad?
Dec 5, 2012

Globalization is the process of "international integration" from the exchanging of national and cultural resources. Globalization is fueled by international trade and exchanges. It has clear effects on a development of a nations economy, the well-being of the people living in the nation, and the overall development of a nation. Globalization is constantly happening today, all over the world. It is a unavoidable connection all over the world.It is a way for a nation to expand their investment portfolio and gain help from other economies and countries. While those are benefits, some threats might include loss of jobs, international dependency, and no total control of economy. Globalization will help to shift the balance of production in our world. It will have impact of "flat world," and the speed and scope of our integrated world will accelerate dramatically.

Is globalization a good thing and will it help to bring together the nations of the world? or will it cause more problems between the nations?

The only problem with globalization is that some countries tend to see it as "Americanization". I think that if it were practical on a global scale to get all of the countries to work together, that I would be a good thing. Unfortunately, there's just not a country right now that's prepared to lead us to globalization.

This is a vital discussion.
It seems 'Globalization" is to be defined.

To my understanding, "Globalization" is the process for the mankind to reach a state of balance and equilibrium in all aspects. In that order, it will not be dominated by one culture but is to be participated by all cultures.

I believe the globalization is a very good thing. Sure it has its affects and flaws in it, but all in all it has made a more interconnected economy in the world and we all benefit from it

Globalization has both positive and negative effects on various countries in the world. For example, globalization of technology has good and bad aspects. More and more countries around the world have more vehicles, which is good in terms of transportation and access to services. However, this means more pollution, leading to health problems and environmental issues. In relation to health, globalization has allowed advances in technology which can save lives of those across the world through diagnostics and treatment. This is a great benefit for people in developing countries, and a step in the right direction for achieving global health.

Globalization has both positive and negative sides. Globalization is more beneficial to the developed countries than it is for the underdeveloped nations as they are simply able to exploit their economies of scale, and productivity advantage. For instance, as a result of globalization people living in developing countries are adopting sedentary lifestyle, and unhealthy diet. as a result, the rate of chronic illnesses is on the rise in those countries. Most of the underdeveloped countries are still dealing with communicable diseases such as malaria, lower respiratory infection, and cholera.As such, developing countries are facing dual burdens of diseases.

Globalization has had both positive and negative impacts around the globe. While it may have been thought that the increased access to knowledge, technology, travel etc would have jolted the developing countries towards a prosperous, healthier future many of the developing nations have yet to escape the vicious cycle of extreme poverty. The recent Ebola outbreak in West Africa demonstrates how globalization contributed both positively and negatively to the outcome. With greater access to travel, trained medical professionals were able to fly in and offer their medical knowledge and support. However, it was the ease of travel that allowed for the spread and magnitude of the virus and risk to North Americans of contracting the illness.

Globalization is both good and bad. Globalization is good because of the sharing of knowledge among nations, technology advances and the sharing of valuable goods across the world. Globalization is bad because health care providers are migrating to developed countries for better opportunities and are depriving their communities of their much needed knowledge and expertise. Globalization also brought the burden of diseases among nations. Now developing countries are dealing with both communicable and non-communicable diseases which is a challenge considering some of these countries lack access to adequate health care.

I think that globalization has positive and negative aspects attributed to it. On the positive side it is allowing developed nations to share knowledge, technology and advance developing nations to bring them to a higher standard in those fields. Yet on the negative side we are introducing knowledge and technology that they people have not asked for and forcing views and knowledge upon them. It also allows people to become victimized to another culture and way of life. Globalization increases the carbon dioxide emissions and causes taxes to increase on regular people instead of the multi-million dollar corporations that are instead getting tax cuts. In reality there are more negatives than positives to globalization.

In terms of health I believe that globalization is both good and bad. It is good in the sense of bringing new technologies to improve conditions, and bad in the sense of lifestyle. When developing countries look at the developed world they see generally healthy people, food security, and often an excess of resources that could be put to better use. What is sometimes not understood however is that with the excess comes a new range of problems such as obesity and diabetes, as well as other lifestyle diseases. For a developing nation, this can lead to a double burden of illness where the people are still combating infectious diseases as well as shouldering the encumbrance of lifestyle illnesses due to excess.

The Double Burden of Disease

According to the World Health Organization (2014), the double burden of disease is the most increasingly devastating problem that the majority of the world’s poor and needy people in hunger and malnutrition are facing. Through globalization, developing countries are impacted with this double burden of disease, which involves the health impacts of both communicable and non-communicable diseases. It is predicted that, by 2020, non-communicable diseases will cause seven out of every ten deaths in developing countries, especially cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer and chronic pulmonary disease (WHO, 2014). Therefore, I believe globalization is negatively impacting individuals and communities living in these developing countries.

In simple words, globalization means the development of relationship with rest of the world. One of the good things that can come out of it is that when disasters occur in the developing countries, such as the Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines on November 8, 2013, foreign medical workers are ready to help and increase the survival rates of the residents of this nation by donating money, medical supplies or even volunteering themselves during the peak of the typhoon.

In my personal opinion, globalization is a positive development as it gives rise to new industries which create more jobs in the developing countries. I grew up in Taiwan where being poor is unforgettable. At that time kids went to school without shoes was common, but global trade help Taiwanese develop their economy and make a better living. In the other hand, developing countries do not have stringent rules about environment which results in serious air, water and soil pollution. This is the negative impact of globalization we have to concern about.
