The dark side of Globalization
people have suffered from globalization but they clearly aren't the
only species. Surprisingly, the environments in developing counties have
been negatively affected as well. Many companies use toxic chemicals
during production, these are later often dumped into nearby rivers as
there are as foreign corporations do not apply standard procedures to
developing countries. The result of this is polluted water, dead plants and animals.
- Besides from exploiting countries and making health literally worse,
globalization is viewed by many as a threat to the world's cultural
diversity. It is said to drown out local economies, traditions and
languages and re-casting the whole world in the mould of the capitalist
North and West.
- Its is clear that globalization clearly
operates in the interests of the richest countries which continue to
dominate world trade and at the expense of developing countries, whose
role in the world market is mostly to provide cheap labor and raw
materials. The fact is that globalization will never stop and while
people say it is beneficial, it is also being unfair to poor countries.
Perhaps it is best that richer countries reconsider many of their
selfish actions and instead of just taking for poorer countries, they
should try to help out and give.
