The Contribution of Globalization to Sustainable Prosperity As citizens of this country and this world, we may be asked the question. To what extent does globalization contribute to the sustainable prosperity of all people. Many people will not be able to give you an answer, some may give a random explanation of globalization or sustainability that in fact has nothing to do with the topic being spoken of. This shows how much we are unaware of the world we live in today. As responsible global citizens, we must be aware of events occurring around us to a broader level.
Believe that all people should be knowledgeable and have a deeper understanding about the situation of the global world they are living in. If this happens, people may have a better understanding of how to take control and aid those in need and environment leading to a society with sustainable prosperity. This should be a prosperity that does not compromise the well-being of the future generations. Globalization is leading to many of those in higher power to take more than they should because of greed.
Slowly they have started to ignore the needs of others in order to fulfill their desires. In order to achieve sustainable prosperity for all generations we as individuals, communities, transnational corporations, and governments must take the consequences that come with our actions and right them. Globalization plays a large role in contributing to sustainable prosperity for all people. Countries in Asia are relevant examples, countries such as Japan and China rose out of poverty to have one of the worlds largest and successful economy.
After world war two Japan began selling clothing and eventually moved on to major manufacturing technologies like machines, cars and electronics. When free trade, outsourcing and transnationals are put into use benefits could result for all countries; developing, underdeveloped and developed. Transnationals can help to boost the economies of developing and underdeveloped countries. Outsourcing can teach valuable skills to people in poverty-stricken countries who might have not had a chance to learn. If developed countries can assist other countries to achieve sustainable prosperity.
Globalization gives us the opportunity to provide sustainable prosperity to all people. Every country who criticizes Alberta’s way of accessing oil, are being hypocrites if they also purchase it. Governments seem to shine bad light upon those countries that have the slightest imperfections and make it into a huge, disgusting scar. Then, once they figure that they must continue business with the said country, a whole different story is started on how they think it’s just a marvelous idea or the trade is kept a secret.
These are times when globalization seems to be both a good and bad idea. Sustainable prosperity is possible, but only when the world ceases to be ignorant of the issues revolving around it. People not knowing environmental, political, and social changes around them, that is just brutal. We need to educate ourselves and find ways to collaborate all of the great ideas many individuals may have, to bring forth a change for the greater good. This involves utilizing globalization to our advantage and spreading word around the global community.
In many countries it is the citizens that define how the government will operate. Knowing that political power is simply on our doorstep, transnationalcorporations will be a pebble compared to the mountain it had lured us to believe in. There are a hundred different ways one could view the effects of globalization on sustainable prosperity, and this is one of them. Shipbreaking in Alang, India is also one of them, knowing that the world-system is a global economic system in which goods and service are produced profit and process of capital continuous if the system survived.
And let say the system survived does that make the worker in Alang, India use some tools or technologies for the process on breaking a ship even though they’re just making a few dollar a day. Plus they’re getting paid less and also they get some kind of sick because of Hazardous materials include oil sludge, toxic paints, asbest halons in foam and firefighting equipment (ozone depleting substances), fuel residues, heavy metals (arsenic, cadmium, chromium, lead, mercury), organotins or biocides, persistent organic pollutants (dioxins, PVCs, PAHs), and radioactive substances.
Think twice on how people in India that was working for their lives for a couple of buck. It would not concern people if they were given the proper suit or clothing for the work, materials on breaking the ship, proper way on handling all Hazardous materials and specially first-aid kit. In this way people won’t get any problem on how to deal with the job they are doing. At least if the owner of the Shipbreak Yard would give those Things there would be no problem in air pollution and oil in the sea . Sustaining this thing would Help the people and the nature without destroying them.
Globalization in itself only describes the interconnected state humanity finds itself in the 21st century. And this is the state we have to live in from now, so globalization as a state will remain forever. Whether we achieve sustainable prosperity for all depends on how we use the connections, relationships in between us. For the proper way of using them, to change from selfish egoistic attitude to caring, giving attitude we need to learn the laws governing the closed, integral system we live in now. But our future, and our prosperity is very much in our own hands. Globalization is just the background we have to work in.
