Effects of Globalization
Globalization has changed the way nations interact. Globalization has made the world a much more intricate community. Only a generation ago, riots in Egypt would have been interesting, a tsunami in Japan would have been news worthy, or an outbreak (SARS) in China might have been tracked.
