The positive effect of globalisation


Globalisation is popular buzzwords that are frequently used in today worlds. What is globalisation? Globalization is difficult to define, the globalisation scholars regularly debates on what is actually meant by globalisation. However, the two things that they agreed on globalisation are that globalisation is happening and it is a process of interconnectedness. According to oxford dictionary globalisation defined as a process by which business or other organisation influence or start operation on an international scale. Globalisation also defined as worldwide movement toward economic, financial, trade and communications integrations. Globalisation may seem new, but it has been in the world since the past two decades, whereby people were involved in buying and selling goods from other countries with a great distance, and invested in enterprise in another country. Nowadays, globalisation is seen to be an entity that could give impact not just to the economy, also to the part that it touched in the world. Is globalisation good or bad? Globalisation is both; it had a good side as well as a bad side. Globalisation is like economic temptress, where it helps some countries to developed and improved in terms of economy, but on the other hands it makes other country become worst and less developed in other terms aside of economy. It helps to raised the economy of the country that involved in it but at the same time the different culture that interact in this globalisation begin to meld, the contours and individuality of each begin to fade. Therefore, globalisation can be seen as good or bad depending on the aspect or area that we are referring to.

Problem/thesis statements

Whenever we talked about the effect of globalisation, of course we will think about the negative and positive impact of globalisation. Some argued that globalisation have more positive impact than the negative one. If we look at the positive side, it gives more job opportunities in the developing countries, but it becomes negative when the developed countries force the poorer countries to do what they want and control that country. This makes people argue whether globalisation gives positive or negative impact. However the effect of globalisation not all negative, even though many people tends to argue that globalisation have more negative effect but it also bring positive impact from the aspect of education, economy and culture. BODY

(Argument 1)

Today, as many countries are developing people tends to argue that the countries are well developing because of globalisation. As the country is busy developing, it also increases the rate of corruption in one country. This is because people tend to relate corruption as the effect cause by globalisation. This is because corruption undermines the potential benefits of globalisation where it increases the cost of doing business and effect the education in one country. For example, every dollar that donated for educational purposes, only around 27% made it way to the countries school and the rest of it was lost to local patronage. People believe that this happened because of globalisation. It cannot be denied that this thing do happened in today world because of globalisation, but if we take a look from different angle I think that education is undergoing constant changes with the help of globalisation. Nowadays education shows rapid development in technology and communication, making the learning system more effective and efficient. Globalisation had made an explosion of knowledge where the access to knowledge is much easier with the help of information technology and satellites. Also giving new ideas, knowledge and values towards information based society. As an example in India, there are no reason for this country to discard globalisation as it give large potential to natural resources and strong industrial base.

(Argument 2)

Most of the people squabble that globalisation is a gigantic curse to the worlds especially to the country that involved in it, where it corrupts the future economy. This is because if one market failed, the global economy will be collapse. This thing happens when the world economy slow down and it will lead market to collapse. It was the biggest challenge for the involved country as the effect of globalisation. However, we cannot put blame hundreds percent to the globalisation itself, as for globalisation also bring good deeds to today worlds. Globalisation had increased the standards of living for the citizens, where nowadays we have access to foreign lending. Most of the money of this lending was used on infrastructure such as road, healthcare, education, social service and so on. Even though, not all citizens can participate, still it helps some of the citizens better than none. Globalisation makes an excellent growth to one country, where the access to new market leads free trade to the country and gives largest benefit to develop nation. Moreover, it helps to eliminate local monopoly and inefficiency in one country gives the country a better global economy and more efficient.

(Argument 3)

Either it minority or majority, there are people who agree that globalisation is both positive and negative. The most popular impact that people tends to argue more than the other impacts that globalisation brings is the issue of cultural lost, where globalisation had ‘drown out’ the local culture of the particular country. It gives impacts more on family, where it change the live and social class of one’s family and the cultural difference are changed permanently. This thing happened cause by the changing roles in gender. Globalisation empowers women, where women are given more opportunity. We can see nowadays there are more women been sending to school and it changes the family and society at large. Despite all the issues above and take a look at the bright side of globalisation, instead of destroying some culture globalisation retain diversity in a culture. Globalisation brings evolution of new identities for people disgrading where they live and their nationality. Moreover, it creates a greater cultural understanding; improve the life of individuals and families. Even though it changes the human activity and behaviour, but it eroding the differences in culture and produce the global system of culture and economy values into a whole new level. In addition, it allows culture a distinctive voice to promote awareness and provide public with knowledge and awareness.


All in all, it blaming globalisation itself is not practical as for globalisation occur from the activity of the country. Even though globalisation do brings many negative impacts to the world, but on the other hands it also give positive impacts to us. There is saying by Lord Robertson that sounds “Globalisation will make our societies more creative and prosperous, but also more vulnerable”. Globalisation can be considered as a good thing even it did bring a negative impacts but if that negative impacts were solved and one country did not use globalisation as a power to control the weaker or poorer country, globalisation can bring benefits to all in a whole. The impacts of globalisation either it positive or negative are depending on how the country managed or operate itself. So whether globalisation will bring more positive impacts or vice versa in the future is
