Globalization Debate Student’s Name Institution Name Globalization Debate Current Event 1: Understanding Globalization Retrieved From www.pbs.org Summary of the Article According to the article there is an analysis of the ways in which there are globalization factors influencing the people and other potential components of a globalized world. According to the article globalization has several meanings depending on the persons who ask of it. For example according the World Bank it can be implied that globalization means international trade. According to the article globalization takes on different contexts like cultural economic and other political implications that may be applied in ensuring the successful integration of the issues of globalization ("NOW with David Brancaccio. Politics & Economy. Understanding Globalization | PBS" 2016). According to this implication there have been instituted the pros and the anti-globalization issues that have been discussed based on the current article on the globalization factors. One issue at hand involves the preoccupation of the major areas in terms of population dominance. According to this perspective there are interpretations of the human concentration that would ultimately translate to the overall effects on the economic factors that may influence the ways in which people integrate. Additionally a geographer would use this article to explain the concept of expansion among the human race and how they influence the ways in which there would be possible success factors in the human activities (Barnett Held & Henderson 2013). Such implications would always be meant to justify on the existence of globalization. References Barnett A. Held D. & Henderson C. (2013). Debating Globalization. Oxford: Wiley.
