Globalization is a very good reason to become a real estate investor. Globalization has not been kind to many American workers.
While there were some benefits, the benefits were not shared evenly. Additionally, when one economy is bad, the whole globe is affected because of increased interdependence.
Here are some other negative effects of globalization:
Inequality. Interdependence and globalization can lead to greater income inequality, both within and between countries, as some individuals and countries may benefit more than others.
Job Losses. Globalization can result in the loss of jobs in certain industries and countries as companies move production to areas with lower labor costs.
Environmental Damage: Globalization can increase environmental damage, as companies may prioritize profits over environmental protection in the countries where they operate.
Everything looking the same, a/k/a cultural homogenization. Globalization can lead to the homogenization of cultures as multinational corporations promote similar products and lifestyles around the world.
Political Power Imbalance. Interdependence can lead to a concentration of political power in the hands of a few countries and international organizations, reducing the sovereignty of smaller nations.
Dependence on Other Countries. Increased interdependence can also make countries vulnerable to events and policies in other countries, leading to economic and political instability.
It’s clear that depending upon the governments of the world to look out for our best interests is a recipe for disaster. Globalization benefited a lot of people and made them richer, at the expense of American jobs.
Globalization was an opportunity for innovation, but American workers were the ones who missed the opportunity. Most people had no idea what was happening or how to recover for it. Many people didn’t have the skills to retrain and had difficulty as a result.
