Many of the anti-globalist groups are the source of who give us the issues and concerns associated with globalization and they stand hard against the changes in their countries to make sure this does not become a reality. As mentioned before with the pro and cons of globalization the issues and concerns can be most harsh if one doesn't know what they are doing. Such as other countries showing more of a comparative advantage from having labor with low wage under advanced factory conditions.

Examples of this includes China dominating the global scale of exports for the goods that they create are not only similarly identical to other...
