Especially China and India, both of them keep high growth speed each year.

Shanghai is home to 23 million people in 2013, and is considered to be China's largest city. Today, China’s population has exceeded 1.2 billion people.

At first, kings ruled ancient China.
This stimulus package did greatly for China’s growth as its real GDP was at 10% in 2010 and 9.2% in 2011.

This shows that China wasn’t affected by the ripples of the GFC unlike smaller countries such as Australia. The impact of globalisation in China has helped China maintain a growth of real GDP between 8% to 10%, making it the fourth largest economy in the world, and on purchasing power parity (PPP), it is the second largest economy in the world, after USA.
For many the main question is, more specifically, why did the industrial revolution not take place in China? In the years preceding the industrial revolution, until around 1800, China was one of the largest nations on earth, both in terms of population and economic output; it had also been one of the most advanced nations for many centuries, as Yifu Lin says ‘China by the fourteenth century was probably the most cosmopolitan, technologically advanced and economically powerful civilisation in the world’ China went from having 32.8% of the world’s total output in 1750 to having 8.2% in 1860, while in the same time period Europe went from having 23.3% to 53.2% (Mukherjee, 2004). Therefore a common question is; why did Europe experience an ‘Industrial Revolution’ before China? There was not one single factor

Morrison Specialist in International Trade and Finance Foreign Affairs, Defense, and Trade Division Is China a Threat to the U.S. Economy? Summary The rise of China from a poor, stagnant country to a major economic power within a time span of only 28 years is often described by analysts as one of the greatest economic success stories in modern times.

A CRO industry publication listed 18 top players in North America with total contract research revenues of 1,7 billion. The top 5 public companies comprised in 1,5 billion in revenues in 1996. Kendle is still able to keep up with the main industry peers.

With few exceptions, global hubs have an industry structured on high-skill and capital intensive industries. In order to become so prominent in the global economy, hubs aren’t dependant on any one state or country, allowing them to benefit hugely from the capitalist world economy freely. London, in the United Kingdom, is a strong example of a global hub. It plays a huge role in international finance: with a 34% share in global forex markets (worth $1359 billion) and a 54% stake in foreign market equity. Such a strong economy is also attractive to many TNCs (trans-national corporations), resulting in 75% of the world’s 500 largest companies being based in the city.
For example Meredith and Hoppough state “Per-person income in china has climbed from $16 a year in 1978 to $2,000 now” (Meredith and Hoppough 393). When readers hear these numbers they should be astounded. The fact that the yearly salary average raised $1984 in 29 years is astonishing, and to think that that is only possible because of globalization. This example strengthens their argument for globalization because there are actual numbers and studies done to prove what they are saying. Meredith and Hoppough are saying that globalization is good for the economy and then they are giving facts from credible sources to back up their statements.
Case4: BATTLE FOR VALUE, 2004: FEDEX CORP VS. UNITED PARCEL SERVICE, INC. Answer of Question1: The stock price of both (pronominal) companies rose.
