Globalization From My Perspective
The effects of globalization are featured in my life on a daily basis. When I am in bed, I am sleeping on sheets that were made in Sri Lanka and shipped to the US, I brush my teeth with a toothbrush and toothpaste that are made in China, and put on clothes that are sourced all over the world. All in all, I would say that the majority of items that I interact with on a daily basis, are made internationally and brought to the US in massive numbers. This is especially true because of the Indian grocery stores that my mom goes to in order to make the traditional dishes we eat at home.
Globalization and My Family
The impact of globalization on both my near and extended family has been about the same if not more. Many of my relatives who live in India have work because they work in factories that produce products that are sold specifically on an international scale. I also have many family members who have work because US companies have outsourced work such as software engineers and technical support specialists. My immediate family feels the same effects of globalization that I do. We all use a lot of products that are made overseas and brought here in massive numbers.
Globalization and the US
I feel that globalization has a very complicated impact, meaning it is hard to make a single determination of whether globalization has been good or bad for the US. I think it has been positive in the sense that it has brought goods to the US that we would otherwise be unable to have. Additionally, it has allowed for the creation of jobs for international workers, as shown by my relatives that I mentioned earlier.
