When you start to talk about globalization you refer to a term that has many definitions, depending on the area you relate to. For example, there are many different topics, such as: economy, finance, consumption, capitalism, socialism, culture, religion, among others, where the word "globalization" may fit in.

But for now I only talk about some facts. Globalization is a process of global economic, political and cultural integration. Its major characteristic features are capitalism expansions, global labor division, migration of financial, human and production resources within the planet, standardization of legislation, economic and technological processes, as well as removing the borders between cultures of various countries. But can globalization be a good factor for the world development on all its dimensions? Well, that's a really hard question to be answered, but somehow, I can say that, globalization is not a force that may abolish traditions, religions and even history.

Talking about history, we can notice events, such as: The Iberian carve up (1490-1500) - the point when printing began to spread knowledge and literacy widely; The Britannic Meridian (1880-1900) also a decade for innovation of international institutions and rising concern over the negative impact of global trade; Sputnik World (1955-1965) - a golden age for economic growth and trade in many parts of the world.; and The global supply-chain who reoriented the contraction line from North-South to East-West, dictated by the supply-chains of giant multinationals.

In this new era, the world is facing so many changes, Internet is a great tool for everyone, and no one can deny it, and of course all technology that the world is making continuously every single day, is perhaps for our own consumption, and service. But have you ever thought if those advantages which are really important for yourself, were made just to satisfy the pockets of rich people who care less about environmental issues or people's exploitation? Obviously you may not be that dramatic, and furthermore, that is not the only problem of the internationalization. With every passing day, the world is becoming smaller, and the globalization process is taking place. Innovations in communication, transportation, genetics, and computer technology have all played a significant role in making the world a smaller place. With the right equipment, people can talk to friends and family
