Globalization





S3nd K3ys
This was emailed to me. Haven't checked it's validity. Kind of cool.

Quote:
INTERNATIONAL THINKING AT ITS BEST!



Question: What is the truest definition of Globalization?

Answer: Princess Diana's death.

Question: How come?

Answer: An English princess

with an Egyptian boyfriend

crashes in a French tunnel,

driving a German car

with a Dutch engine,

driven by a Belgian who was drunk

on Scottish whisky, (check the bottle before you change the spelling)

followed closely by Italian Paparazzi,

on Japanese motorcycles;

treated by an American doctor,

using Brazilian medicines.

This is sent to you by an American,

using Bill Gate's technology,

and you're probably reading this on your computer,

that use Taiwanese chips,

and a Korean monitor,

assembled by Bangladeshi workers

in a Singapore plant,

transported by Indian lorry-drivers,

hijacked by Indonesians,

unloaded by Sicilian longshoremen,

and trucked to you by Mexican illegals.....

That, my friends, is Globalization

Haha yeah that's a good example but you can do that with others things as well it's cool. Suppose the 21st century has so much communication it's easier to do things like that.

Yep, it's amazing how globalization is and has changed the world. The e-mail is valid as an idea (cars and computers are made by many countries all over the world) but not entirely accurate (my computer was probably NOT hijacked by Indonesians, unloaded by Sicilian longshoremen, and trucked to me by Mexican illegals and I doubt that the Belgian was definitely drunk on Scottish whisky).

Josso, you're right, many other examples can be made, but cars and computers are two of the best ones, since they are made by many different parts that interconnect and work together, just like the world is today.

haha. That is really cool. Very creative.

LOL. It's an awsome narrative I should say.

Well, Maybe I'll just put my opionion in an equation;

GLOBALIZATION + 1st World Countries = Good Effect
GLOBALIZATION + 3rd World Countries = Bad Effect

3rd world countries' economic standards will might be lowered because a one factor is competition will be tightened. Local products competing to Foreign products.

What a silly thing to say. Surely if 3rd world products were inferior then they wouldn't be bought or at least allow for superior products to compete alongside.

That's based on what I observed. Anyways, it's just my opinion.
