Economic globalization is characterized by a four-fold borderless exchange encompassing that of economic output, that of human movement, that of capital, and that of technological (2009). We are part of a world utilizes many changes and challenges in societies and in the world economy. In our society, we have the choice to choose many different products that we incorporate in our daily activities. Because of many different cultural differences within our societies, there has been a drastic increase in the international trade and the cultural exchange. The reality of it all is that we are faced with globalization. Globalization faces us to compete with the cheapest producers of our selective products. Globalization has a positive impact on many domestic and international markets in multiplying the other products available in the market consumers. The impression that the economic globalization has left on our society has a sustainable growth that will increase the longevity of lives and improve the economic standards for living. If this growth will indeed help the growth in our poor communities then society can overcome all poverty situations. (Idanan, 2009) When I think of borderless, I think of a never ending means of getting what I want when I want it. A borderless society can’t be beneficial for everyone. Maybe the middle class and definitely the rich can benefit in this borderless society. In poverty, you don’t have too many choices at what particular brand it is, where it was raised and the specific diet that was fed in order to achieve the richness and quality of the product. In poverty you have to take what you can in order to survive. Few of many people can choose their wine from different countries and years, or their steaks that come from different cows raised around the world to be cooked by the finest chefs. There is a price to pay, but when you have endless means, who’s counting. A truly borderless world would place great limits on the ability both to confine the effects of domestic economic policy within national borders and to insulate countries from foreign economic shocks. In such a world, financial capital, production activities, and even workers could move in response to better opportunities elsewhere in the world almost as easily as they could within a given country, thereby undermining efforts to maintain economic or financial conditions at home that diverge substantially from those abroad. (Ceglowski, 1998) The US and Canada are two strong countries that are found to have no boundaries between the two because of no trade barriers. Prices for the same product will not be the same being that you have to keep in mind the transportation giving to transport the product to different locations. Listed below are the items that I have chosen for breakfast and lunch that have an impact on our world from and ecological and economic perspective. Orange juice
My oranges were purchased from Krogers Grocery food store here in Columbia, SC. Yet, Oranges are believed to be native to the tropical regions of Asia and probably spread from its native habitat to India and the east coast of Africa and from there to the eastern Mediterranean region. Roman conquests, the development of Arab trade routes, and the expansion of Islam contributed significantly to this dispersal. Orange trees were common in the Canary Islands during Christopher Columbus’s voyages. Today oranges are cultivated in subtropical and tropical America, northern and eastern Mediterranean countries, Australia, and South Africa. The process – Harvesting & Squeezing
Oranges are hand-picked in the field, loaded into trailers and delivered to the processing plant. The deterioration process begins as soon as they are separated from the tree. The fruit is dumped from trailers onto conveyers where it is carried through a washing process. The fruit is...
