Globalization

Jan Aart Scholte's globalization, Globalization Books Reviews

The globalization process is seen as driven by the growth of international capitalism and involving the transformation of the culture and social structures of non-capitalist and pre-industrial societies. Globalization is marked by the expansion of the size and power of multinational corporations.

The globalization process in the economic sphere can be seen in international trade agreements and the enormous increase in volume of international trade and growing economic interdependency between countries.   A process of internationalization of communication, trade, human resource and economic organization. The terms Uberisation and eBayization are also now used to refer to globalization.
