Globalization refers to increasing global connectivity, integration and interdependence in the economic, social, technological, cultural, political, and ecological spheres.For those of you who don’t know, many liberals oppose globalization for a number of various reasons. Some don’t like it because they believe it empowers corporations while simultaneously suppresses the poor. Others don’t like it because they feel globalization has effectively “Americanized” the rest of the world. The idea is that because America is the richest country in the world, our cultural icons (music, books, movies, etc.) are shared with the rest of the world and stomp out local talent. In other words, it makes the world a less diverse place (which is the biggest sin of all for liberals).
