These days, people can purchase the same products from any place in the world resulting in similarities between countries. I strongly think this is a positive development and this essay will elaborate on why it is the case.
With modern technology such as the internet, mobile phones, and computers, people can purchase any products they wish to buy from anywhere in the world. The process starts with the decision-making where they can compare products with different sellers, and also checking whether it meets their budget and specifications. The internet helps in spreading awareness of the better-quality product out there and the individual can know of its existence. In addition, he can even make the purchase even if it is not available in the local stores. This goes the same for local shop owners and domestic businesses, where they can get wide exposure and expand their business to places where they can get more revenue through online platforms. For example, ex-pats can enjoy a delicious dish with ingredients from their home country by transacting online.
Another development is seen when big companies expand their business and push their products to new countries. Globalization can create better job prospects for the citizens of the country and help in the increase of government revenue through taxation. Mobile giant companies like Apple have established stores all over the world and have created a large job market for technicians, software engineers, and salespeople. The people are benefited by the new technology of the multinational company making them on the same level as other developed countries. Furthermore, the country can also impose a tax and create a good revenue from it.
To summarize, both the individual and the country benefit from the availability of products from all over the world. As a result, it improves the lives of the people and helps in the rise of the country’s economy.

In today’s world, the people are virtually more socialize with each other which enhances the thought exchange process across the globe and because of that liking of similar products has been increases over the period of time. I think, this is positive development where society is moving towards the rationalization & this essay will explain the merits associated with this trend.
Before advent of an Internet, there was very limited source of information available for most part of our society. Hence, people used to buy whatever available in local markets. The availability of the products are mainly influenced by local tradition, caste, creed & business of individual. For example, the blazers and fancy dresses were wore by the society tycoons, businessmen whereas middle & poor class was not entitled for such clannish clothe and other items. So, choices was always different among various part of the society due to above reasons.
In this era, the information and technology has connected entire globe to each other & online shopping giants like Amazon and Ali express has played an important role for bringing world class choices to our fingertips. Another reason for having exact choices amongst hundreds is mainly due to the social platform such facebook, youtube and instagram where millions of fan following their exemplar and try to follow them in all aspects. In general, Overall globalization, social platform and online shopping sites are main contributors for developing similar taste buds among each part of our society.
To conclude, having similar choices has ended up the discrimination in our society which was mainly governed by the attire of the personal. Now, Everyone has right to buy anything irrespective of gender, caste and its solely depends on the personal taste.

Some people believe that globalization has led to homogenization of cultures due to which distinctiveness of places and people has decreased. People are able to purchase all kind of goods and services anywhere globally which were native to one place historically. In my opinion globalization has both advantages as well as some disadvantages, which we are going to discuss in this essay.
Globalism had been fastened with advent of technology as it has reduced differences in the world and has made the entire earth like a big nation. It has made people easier to travel, interact and be accommodative with cultural distinctions and has opened up the whole world with more study options and job opportunities globally. For instance, nowadays many students travel abroad for better study and job options whereas 2-3 decades ago it seemed like an impossible task for mostly people to stay away from their families and home. In present times, people are able to easily buy their native cuisine items in foreign countries and are able to interact with their families on daily basis. It has created a positive blend of different cultures, thus reducing unnecessary differences between people.
Inter and Intra country differences makes this earth a beautiful place to live where we can have multicultural experiences in terms of different cuisines, languages, places etc. Human distinctions are a beautiful aspect of global diversity and excessive homogenization impacts it in a negative way as it leads to loss of cultural, linguistic and cuisine diversity. In fact this blind race of globalization was responsible for colonialism, world wars and ultimately discrimination and exploitation of poor nations by wealthier ones. Hence, I strongly believe that organic way of globalization is the right way to go whereas forced homogenization has always wreaked havoc in world historically.
In conclusion, globalization has some benefits such as it reduced human boundaries, brought them closer with more growth opportunities worldwide. But it also has some disadvantages like loss of multiculturalism and impacts global diversity.

These days, people can buy products from anywhere in the World and I certainly believe that this is a very positive development in many aspects.
As Technology is evolving each day and Globalization is spreading in each part of the World, buying products has been quite convenient in any part of the World.
In the past few years, we have seen that many big players have jumped into the area of E-commerce and this has actually evolved the online shopping to a greater extent. The growth in the Telecom sector has worked as a catalyst where companies providing 4G and 5G services has actually given a platform to the companies for developing attractive online shopping application for mobile phones.
In terms of financial growth, this has given opportunities to the companies to setup their manufacturing units in every part of the World and as a result this has created numerous opportunities in the job market. This has also boosted the tax revenues for the local Government. Chinese giants like XiaoMi and Oneplus have opened their stores all over the World and created a significant employment for technical experts, software engineers and salespeople.
Alongside, it has resulted in a healthy competition between the online sellers and the retailers where each one of them is throwing attractive offers to pull the customers and buy their products.
Overall, this development has narrowed down the gap between the developing and the developed nations in terms of employment, revenues and easy availability of the products. This revolution has improved country’s economy and certainly proved to be a win-win situation for the Government and their citizens as well.

In the recent years, the rapid development and use of technology has led to a remarkable development of global trade. An increasing number of customers have shown their interest in products and services from around the world. In my opinion this is a positive and a necessary trend.
With the help of e-commerce portals consumers can access a wide range of products conveniently from their cell-phones and laptops. They can easily see, compare and buy products from anywhere around the world thereby increasing the demand. Naturally, any manufacturer would want to sell his/her products and service across the globe. With companies entering the global markets the competition is very high and would force the manufacturers to improve the production and quality of their products.
The expansion of the markets also creates more and better job opportunities which contribute to the economy of the nation.
Thereby I conclude by saying that this is a positive and a necessary change.

These days it is so very possible for people to get all the products of their choice from anywhere in the world which in turn is making all the countries more and more similar globally. In my opinion this has turned into a positive development as people can access the products or services being anywhere in the world with any compromises making their life more comfortable.
People can access international products like Apple, Samsung, Nike and many more from anywhere in the world resulting into various choices and preferences which fosters the growth and development of different nations. It also helps in bridging the gap between countries in the way that people from different borders come together, for instance in a Chinese restaurant, they get to meet other people, get to know their thoughts and ideas which brings them together avoiding various barriers and differences. More the similarities in nations would bring more growth and development in a country.
On the other hand, with a wide variety of global products available to each one also put a pressure on the producers to make the quality products available to their consumers instead of just focusing on the quantity. It brings awareness among the consumers as they are already aware of the different products so there are less chances of cheating and fraud on the name of fake or duplicate products. Moreover, the quality products and services provided by the producers sometimes get recognized by the international market and it help them expanding their business globally. For instance, Ferns and Petals was a small company which used to deliver products in India on the special occasions, and with its prompt and error free service it has now expanded its business to several other countries in a short span of two years.
In conclusion, the globalization has made peoples’ life more luxurious and comfortable than in the past and with this it is fostering the growth of underdeveloped and developing nations.
