Globalization (for Tummies!!)

What are the benefits of Globalization? The direct benefits seen here are only eaten….yes, I can relate it with food first! The signs are everywhere….


Globalized World – What does it mean? A good article articulating the Impact asks us following questions…

Does it mean the fast movement of people which results in greater interaction?
Does it mean that because of IT revolution people can be in touch with each other in any part of the world?
Does it mean trade and economy of each country is open in Non-Intrusive way so that all varieties are available to consumer of his choice?
Does it mean that mankind has achieved emancipation to a level of where we can say it means a social, economic and political globalization?

In India, for instance, globalization is often blamed for everything from starvation deaths of farmers to scarce power and water. But what is it about globalization that prevents a government sitting on stockpiles of food from distributing it to its citizens? And if more is not invested in health care or water supply is it because of the constraints of globalization, or is it because states are captured by vested interests that divert resources to their own good? If anything, states stymie democracy more than globalization. Refer…

Now when it comes to food anything from anywhere is welcome, the FMCG’s who have tingled the taste buds of almost every Indian via their solids or liquids were always welcome as most of them came via the local partnership routes and our friendly politicians secured the C&F / dealerships with FMCG’s fattening their bank balances …isn’t it?
