What is globalization?

As mentioned in lessons, you are not expected to 'define' globalization per sec, but you can read about it and make your own decision on what is 'globalization'.

There is a pretty good website to start from:

http://www.globalisationguide.org/

As I tried to word it for a proposal I am writing, hope the following excerpt makes some sense to some of you:

"The globalized world today has resulted in increasingly unregulated financial and labour markets in different regions and countries that are unevenly integrated in the world economy. There is increasing income disparity between economies as well as the uneven accumulation of capital between global regions. The same processes have also increase the fluidity of the movement of people across and between national borders. The globalization phenomenon is seen as a virtually unstoppable process that can only be accommodated rather than resisted (Ohmae, 1990). The world is now flattened by globalizing technologies (Friedman, 2006) and is responsible for integrating the world closer through space-shrinking and time-compressing technologies.

This has led to the blurring of political boundaries and the seemingly homogenizing of a global landscape where notions of the nation-state is contested and even argued as ‘dead’ (Guehenno, 1995; Knoke, 1996). The new complexity of global causality visibly exceeds the capacity of nation-states to maintain effective control as the distinction between the global and the local is ‘resignified’ (Pensky, 2005) and [globalization] is played out in the apparent fluidity of material practices across space and time, constructing imaginations of the world as a nestled world of opportunities for people in its circulatory flows of goods, people, capital and ideas. In essence, globalization as a force from ‘outside’ is re-aligning and re-defining the nation-state’s capacities as political bodies (Held & McGrew, 2002; Dicken, 2003).
