Globalisation

-Its a big part of how and why the world is changing and becoming a big global cummunity.

It is occuring at an increasing rate due to-

TNC- produce, sell or located in 2 or more countries. 

-Some generate more money then countries GDP- shell and oil

-Bring new investors and new cultures- mc donals and westen fast foods.

-Main driving force behind globalisation.

IMPROVED CUMMUNICATIONS- transport and technology 'shrinking world'.

NEW MARKETS-western companys can sell to new markets such as china and india- buying and seeling stocks between new companys and markets.

INTERNATINAL ORGINISATION- bring people, money and info together. Such as the Wold bank,IMF and WTO-helps to reduce trade barriers and taxes.

Global grouping

Places can be put into groups as the world weath and power is not shared equally.

LEDC- group of 50 countiries that have very low incomes, helth, education rates, ecnomic instibility and heavey debt- MOZAMBIQUE.

-There income mostly due to agriculture- crops fail- DESASTERS. they only move out of this grouping when conditions improve- BOTSWANA.

NICs-Newly industrilised countries that arnt classified as compleatly developed.

-They have growing economeys and have reciently moved from agriculture to munufacturing and exporting.- use to be called AISAIN TIGERS but now SINGIPORE, HK, SK AND TIWAN are developed. No formal list of NICs.-CH and In

EX-SOVIET STATES-middle income countries- Solvet uniun= russia, central Aisa and Easten europe-now indipendent countries since the solvout colapsed-1991.

-Growing economomys( not as much as NICs)- recent growth through natural resources (oil in KAZAKSTAN).

2 of 35

Groups

OPEC-orginistion of petronium exporting countiries- 13 major oil exporters.- IRAN, ANGOLA AND INDONESIA.

-They controal aroud 2/3 of oil reserves.

-Large group can make sure fair prices are acheived-some have left as they wanted to produce more oil then OPEC allowed. GABON- others have joined. 

OEDC- orginisation for economic cooporation and development- 30 riches and most powerful countries- tope 8 =G8.

G8 have over 60% of the worlds GDP and controal most militrey power.

-The meet to descuss possible solutions for social, economic and enviromental issues.

-The members are always changing.

3 of 35

Trade blocks.

-Groups of countries that make agreements to reduce there barriers of trade- by removing taxes/tariffs. the blocks icrease trade between members and they can work together as large orginisations. 

BENIFITS TO BEING IN TRADE BLOCKS ARE-

ECONOMIE OF SCALE- increased sales as there is a larger market and it is easier to trade.- more sales mean more money and more produce.

COMPARITIVE ADVANTAGES-contries can consontrate on developing certain indistries- easier to trade with all different goods- countires can specilise in good and avoid others.

NAFTA- north american free trade organisation.

ARE TNCs GOOD OR BAD- they can reduce taxes and countries with in the block benifit but out of it still have to pay taxes.

4 of 35

TNC LINKS.

TNCs create links between countries in different ways.-

MERGERS- 2 companys of similar sizes agree to become one bigger one-BP AND AMOCO to create better links between the two countries of operations.

ACQUISITION- one company buys another smaller company- ford and Volvo.

USING SUB CONTRACTORS- TNCs are can use foreign companys to manufacture product with out achilly owning them-NIKE.

FOREIGN DIRECT INVESTMENT- any investment that goves TNCs a long term interest in a countrie outside one they are in. HSBC- indonisia.

CRITICISMS OF TNCs INCLUDE- profit doesn't stay in the countrie it was generated in and goes back to the cpuntrie of orogin.

WAL-MART

-One of the largest TNCS in the world.

-first opened in alaska is now al over the world in Brizil and japan. However was not succsessful in GERMANY as cound not compeate with LIDIL.

-Rebranded either ASDA or WAL-MART depending on the place.

WALMART HELPS TO ARTICULATE GLOBALISATION- flows of money, people, trade and info- also bring culture from it countrie of orogin the USA.

Even though it is a global brand it like to take a local approch and source locally.

SPACIAL DIVETION OF LABOUR- laour is split up and made in the most cost effectove place, it' workforce is sourced from all over the world.

ELECTRONIC GOODS- CHINA          CLOTHINHG/GEORGE- INDIA AND UK.

diffrent pay across the globe- CHINA FACTORIES- $1 hour

USA FACTORIES-$6 MIN AN HOUR                 HEADQUOTORS USA$100,000.

SWITCHED ON AND OFF PLACES.

SWITCHED ON- most higly connected countries-as well as important citys in porrer countries such as SINAGPORE.

trade, money, people and info can move easily-global hubs as global network can flow through them. 

energy usage and eco footprint is much bigger in switched on places as they are able to accsess good easier. CONSUMERS AND PRDUCERS.

SWITCHED OFF PLACES-worst connected cuntries- some remote wealthy places BHUTAN which is landlocked.

-Some money flow- often from AID. CASH CROPS but very little trade.

Pople in switched off places are not CONSUMERS or PRODUCERS no market for TNCs.

poor leader ship and civil unrest can lead to GLOBAL LOSERS which are switched off from global networks due to difficult ph

7 of 35

New technology.

NEW GLOBAL NETWORKS DUE TO NEW TECHNOLOGY- internet, air travel create GLOBAL NETWORKS.

-LONG DISTANCE TELECOMUNICATIONS.

-THE INTERNET

-CHEAP AIR TRAVEL.-EASY JET                        all these create a shrinking world.

PHYSICAL AND HUMAN RESOURCES CREATE GLOBAL WINNERS-

Places with useful resources that help them connect to global networks- COMPARITIVE ADVANTAGES as they are well connected so can trade easier.-creating a MULTIPLYER EFFECT

SOUDI ARABIA- oil rich- middel east- 1/2 GDP from oil-global connections- helps to keep the switched on- has coasts on 2 sides so oil can be shipped easily.

CHINA is a NIC- huge pop 1.3 billion- cheap bu relitivly skilled labour- rapid investment- cheap labour means costs are reduced and increased profit.

Consequences of globalisation

ECONOMIC-increased global trade

RICHER NATIONS - POSIITIVES- increased wealth- better education that attracts investments-highly paid job sector.

NEGITIVES- manual labour lossess meens loss of jobs due to deindustrilsation.

NICs-POSITIVES- increased wealth, attracts investment as they have large workforces and low wage demands.

NEGITIVES-the income gap between rich and poor widens-few wealthy many poor

moral and social consequesnces of globalisation

MORAL CONSEQUENCES-

-dangerous poor paid work has been moved rather then stoped.

-child labour.

-NICs products are chap as poor working conditions low wages and explotation of workers- many feel richer nations should take responsibiity as the consumer.

10 of 35

consequences of globalisation-

ENVIROMENTAIL-

OIL POLLUTION-increased trade ans shipping - eco system damages.

DEFORISTATION- cash crops in tropical places- cut down the rain forest.

CARBON EMISSIONS- transported along way-pollution such as C02

WASTE- more acsess to products at cheaper prices- people are being more wastefull- throwing away clotes rather then mending them.

RECYCLING ISSUES- more recycling but waste can be transported along way brfore being recycled- paper from the UK to CHINA- global warming/GHG

11 of 35

Solutions to CONSEQUENCES OF GLOBALISATION-

GOVERMENT- carbon credits- koyoto protical and carbon limits

decorage deforestation and give more carbon credits for tree planting.

BUISSNESS-

Starting distance transport- lables of where products come from- ecourage coustomers to buy loacl- using recycled matireal.

INDIVIDUALS- fair trade- buying local- recycle.

Migration

PUSH FACTORS- make people want to move out of the place they are in- they are negitive factors.

PULL FACTORS- positive factors that attract people to new places.

OBSTICALS- things that make it more difficult to move- cost.

OPPORTUNITYS- oppetunitys people incountor before they reach there end destination- Polish stop at irland not London. 

MIGRATION RATE- diffrence between the number of migrant in (imigrants) and out(emegrants) per 100,000.

13 of 35

DTM

STAGE 1- high birth rates and death rates- pop remains stable but low.

-high infant mortality and hight birth rates and death rates.

STAGE 2-high birth rates, death rates fall- the pop increases rapidly.

STAGE 3- Birth rates fall ALOT but death rates fall ALITTLE- birthrates decline alittle  while death rates fall slowly- the pop increases at a slower rate.

STAGE 4- low birthrates and low death rates-pop remains stable but high- MOST DEVELOPED COUNTRIES. UK AND EUROPE.

STAGE 5- birth rates drop below death rates- birthrates decline wile death rates stay the same- JAPAN more elderly people.

MIGRATION CAN ALTER POPULATION STRUCTURE, WHICH CAN BE SEEN ON THE POPULATION PRYAMID. MIGRATION CAN AFFECT ANY PART OF THE POPULATION PRYMID- DESPITE THE AGE OF THE MIGRANTS.

Social and economic impacts of an ageing populatio

SOCIAL

-INCREASED PRESSURE ON PUBLIC SURVICES-hospitals, bus services and hospices. people need more care and there for more carers and nurses will be needed.

UNEQUAL DISTRABUTION OF OLD- such as EAST BOURN with the most old people in the UK- areas like this are catered for older and have inadiquate facilitys for young-bars and clubs.

RECYCLE MORE WASTE.

WATER CONSOVATION.

IMPROVE PUBLIC TRANSPORT.
