05) IELTS Essay, topic: The advantages and disadvantages of globalization

Even though globali&ation affects the world's economies in a very positive way# its negative side should not be forgotten (iscuss /lobali2ation is such a commonly used term in the twentieth century. (t simply means that the world has become integrated economically socially politically and culturally through the advances of technology transportation and communication. (t is undeniable to say that globali2ation has resulted in both positive and negative effects which must be addressed accordingly. To begin with globali2ation has contributed to the world=s economies in many beneficial ways. The advances in science and technology have allowed businesses to easily cross over territorial boundary lines. Conse8uently companies tend to become more productive competitive thereby raising 8uality of goods services and the world=s living standard. ,econdly several companies from the more developed countries have already ventured to establish foreign operations or branches to ta'e advantage of the low cost of labor in the poorer countries. This 'ind of business activity will provide more influx of cash or investment funds into the less developed countries. .owever one cannot deny the negative effects which have derived from globali2ation. -ne crucial social aspect is the ris' and danger of epidemic diseases which can easily be spread as the mode transportation is easier and faster in today=s advance society. This is evidenced in the recent bird=s flu disease which has infected most *sian countries over a short time frame.

*s large corporations invest or ta'e over many off shore businesses a modern form of coloni2ation will also evolve which may pose certain power pressure on the local governments of the less developed countries. ;nemployment rates in the more developed regions li'e >urope may also escalate as corporations choose to outsource cheaper wor' force from *sian countries. (n conclusion ( li'e to reiterate that globali2ation is inevitable and we must urge individuals companies and governments to use a more balanced approach by ta'ing appropriate steps to deal with matters relating to the financial or economical gains verses the social political or ecological concerns of the world.
