Is Globalization working?

Is globalization working? It depends on what you mean by working. If you mean working by bringing countries around the world together by working together then yes, I'd say it is working. If you are talking about destroying our culture and opening the doors for terrorism then yes, I'd also say it is working. Either way I believe that globalization is working but not always for the best.

On the good side of Globalization we see new opportunities for poor countries around the world. Language barriers are being broke down through the internet, as well as bilingual teachings in other countries. Countries once ruled by oppressive rulers are now opening the doors for democracy.

Either way you want to look at it, I'd say it's working. On the good side it is opening up new opportunities around the world, while on the bad side destroying opportunities for us as Americans. It's also helping large companies with the
