Explain the term ‘globalisation’ and the role that multinational companies play in the development of globalisation. Globalisation is the process by which the world is becoming increasingly interconnected as a result of massively increased trade and cultural exchange. Globalisation has increased the production of goods and services and has therefore lead to increased trade between countries. This trade encourages countries to work together and removes trade barriers such as quotas and tariffs. This increased openess allows countries to specialise in producing goods which they have a comparitve advantage in (this means they can produce goods at lower unit costs) A multinational Company is a corporation that has its facilities and other assets in at least one country other than its home country.
Illegal Aliens are harming our economy and are taking American jobs contrary to what you are led to believe. "Over the past 10 years, more than 2 million low-skilled American workers have been displaced from their jobs and each 10 percent increase in the immigrant workforce decreases U.S. wages by 3.5 percent" writes CNN financial analyst Lou Dobbs (Grigg 1). Current president George W. Bush and his political allies assure the public that illegal immigrants are doing jobs that nobody else wants. However, Steve Camarota of the Center for Immigration Studies, points out "what they really mean is that they are doing the jobs that they as middle- and upper-class people don't want" (Grigg 1). Agriculture has many other instances of employers switching to immigrant workers whether they are legal or not to increase their profits.
Although more than half of all Asians in the U.S. were born outside the U.S., many non-Asians simply assume that every Asian they see, meet, or hear about is a foreigner. Many can't recognize that many Asian American families have been U.S. citizens for several generations. As a result, because all Asian Americans are perceived as foreigners, it becomes easier to think of us as not fully American and then to deny us the same rights that other Americans take for granted. Yes, that means prejudice and discrimination in its many forms. Even back in the late 1800s, Asians mobilized their resources to lobby for equal rights and access to economic, land, and occupational opportunities that they were being denied.
The substantial increase in population due to immigration that occurs during this time goes on to affect the nation in positive and negative ways. Some of the adverse affects of such a rapid growth in population were overcrowding in cities, lack of jobs, and occasional food shortages. But the hard working spirit and work ethic that the immigrants brought, along with a determined will to succeed, were an overarching positive were crucial to the country becoming what it is today. In the late 1800s, people in many parts of the world decided to leave their homes and emigrate to the United States. Immigrants entered into the United States through several
Due to the diversity of it's people, the United States has some challenges to face in the coming years. We have to overcome discrimination of other races, those who are disabled, and the elderly. We have to look at others as Americans and not African-Americans,
Immigration is considered a serious issue in the United States today. Opinions of U.S citizens on immigration are divided. Although there is a division in personal opinion, the Washington Post/ ABC poll mentioned above suggested that a majority of Americans do not think that sending illegal immigrants home or punishing them will solve the problem of illegal immigration, and a more comprehensive solution requiring further understanding of the situation is needed. The Census Bureau estimates the US population will grow from 281 million in 2000 to 397 million in 2050 with the expected rate of immigration, but only to 328 million with zero immigration. "If we have zero immigration with today's low birthrates the American population would eventually
When these new people enter the daily workings of American society, they contribute positively to both employment and consumption. Immigration critics argue that the net benefits to the U.S. economy from immigration, aside from the large gains to the immigrants themselves, are small. The mere fact that incomes are actually increasing despite the large increase in immigrants seems to support immigration all the
3/2/2011 Fixing America’s Immigration Issues The United States due to increasing economic concern needs to address our current immigration policies. An estimated 12 million illegal immigrants are in the United States and this number is increasing every year. In many areas illegal immigrants can receive public assistance including education, welfare and medical care without paying in taxes. Immigration reforms could help in reducing the national debt while allowing us to retain many of the current benefits given to American citizens. The American public in general realizes reform must take place, but the direction the policy reform should to take is still very much up in the air.
America is one of the most diverse countries in the world because so many people immigrated to the United States in the past in search of new opportunities. Immigration is the action of coming to live permanently in a foreign country. People from all over the world travel to the United States for a better life. Without diversity, the United States would not have the culture it does to this day. America needs immigration because immigrants help to develop new ideas, a diversity of culture, and they founded and helped to create the United States.
