If you are aware of the effects of globalization, try to get the best out of it. Use the system to your advantage. Be aware of the pitfalls and the dangers. If you don’t have the maturity to accept that you are affected by globalization, you are than more exposed to the negative effects of it. In my opinion, the ones who can benefit the most of globalization are enterprises, much more than individuals.
In this new environment, it is both increasingly costly to resort exclusively to the use of brute force and increasingly rewarding to exercise brute force in combination with ‘softer’ alternatives, such as the indirect or veiled influence of norms and international institutions. This major transformation of the parameters of power is accompanied by a profound shift in the logic that governs international political interaction. In an age where nations are increasingly vulnerable to transnational networks of dependency, states can influence each other by establishing norms affecting their respective societies and populations. It is evident that Normpolitik (as distinct from military or economic pressure) is an efficient means of achieving goals within the complex mechanism of interdependence. Acting as a norm entrepreneur permits one not only to define the rules of the game and its pay-off matrix but also to get partners
How capital and labor are combined is central to how much output is produced. To increase the output with given inputs, productivity needs to increase through innovations. Innovations are often brought to the market and diffused through the economy by young entrepreneurial firms. New smaller firms often choose more risky product introduction strategies compared with more established firms. They fail more often, but they also successfully bring riskier high-impact innovations to the market more
A rising access to FDI is viewed as one of the crucial benefits of globalisation due to changes in capital formation (net capital accumulation during an accounting period), technology and knowledge transfer, higher wages and increased job opportunities. Open economies with skilled workforces and a favourable growth forecast usually draw larger amounts of foreign direct investment than closed intensely regulated economies. The problem that critics find with FDI stems from the fact that even though levels of FDI tend to be buoyant during periods of economic instability, there is the possibility of FDI negatively affecting the net capital flow of a lesser developed economy notably if it does not have a healthy and constant FDI “schedule”. The role of FDI takes on various forms whether it be for the Investor or the Economy, the role of FDI for an investor can be listed as; * Increasing foreign market share – to make a Multination Enterprise’s (MNE) presence felt more in a foreign market as well as to promote the brand on a global scale * Defend market share – FDI enables a MNE to regain some market share by either investing in a new country or by investing more into a country that has already had

'International aid brings both benefits and problems for a country trying to develop its economy' with the aid of named examples evaluate this view. (30 marks) International aid can bring many problems to a country in need of development, this is usually through the ill-use, ill-deployment and abuse of International aid by both the donor countries and the recipient countries. However, effective aid brings more benefits to developing countries than problems is the aid is properly allocated to the area most in need and the aid is not ties so that it benefits the donor. International aid can bring problems to a developing country as it can be an obstacle to development and can provide other problems put forward by the political right. Aid can become an obstacle to development because of the tied nature of much aid, which benefits the donor country more than the recipient, in economic terms.
Key Issues: Fusion of multiple modalities, from persistent productivity and resilience of Renaissance man Michelangelo to patient long term planning derived from Zen Koans, Mr. Buckly demonstrates how to harvest key concepts for managerial use and guidance. 3. Define the Problem & the Opportunity. The world’s global recession has touched upon every industry and life, and while the causes and solutions are multi-factorial, a positive mental attitude with emphases on perseverance and productivity will encourage satisfactory resolution.

While there are a lot of factors that can affect industry profitability in the short run, including the weather and the business cycle, industry structure, manifested in the competitive forces, sets industry profitability in the medium and long run. If these forces are too intense in an industry, it is very hard for a company to earn a return on investment. When the forces are benign many, if not all, companies are profitable. When some forces are stronger than others, those forces determine the profitability of the industry and they are the most important to look at when forming a strategy. Industry structure sets profitability in the long run and provides a framework for anticipating and influencing competition and profitability over time.

Is Globalization Reducing Poverty and Inequality? It is impossible today to talk about poverty and inequality without taking into account the topic of globalization. Globalization is a political, economic and social process characterized by greater economic interaction between different geographical regions with different goals. During the New York Forum, globalization was viewed as the only way to end poverty even though it is inevitable because it is a necessary consequence of technical progress. But in the Forum of Porto Alegre, globalization was not only considered dangerous but even negative, because the more it grows the faster it generates more economic and social inequality worldwide, resulting in extreme poverty and the wealth of nations.
