Unit 2: Globalisation
Globalisation and the links it creates is happening at an ever-increasing pace. Whilst some argue that it spreads wealth and power in beneficial ways, there is widespread concern about the way in which globalisation impacts on economies, societies and environments. Many researchers argue that it is creating an unfair world in which rich consumers exploit the world’s poorest peoples, who remain unfairly or poorly connected to the wider world. Action to develop a more sustainable approach to these challenges is leading to difficult decisions at a variety of scales from the individual to global markets.
