Globalization refers to the interconnectivity witnessed in the world, where the economies, politics, and culture of different countries get linked (Hughes, 2019). Such connectivity stems from the regular movement of people and goods across a couple of states. Technology also aids the process of globalization by easing communication and interaction between people from different parts of the globe. Globalization brings about certain benefits and disadvantages. To benefit from globalization, people have to get a grip on the cost and benefits of globalization.(920words)
