  1. Great video.  Explained really well.

  2. Hi! I'd love to use the video for a presentation at school and I need the script. Please send me the script via email. greetings from vienna/austria ([email protected]

  3. I believe America is suffering.  No toys not a lot of manufacturing happening here.  The Foreign countries that they are saying don't benefit.?  It has always been like this.  What is new is that America is becoming more hollow and jobs are overseas.  Who will be the new super power? 

  4. Taiwan is a small part of China. It is belong to China, not a country. Do say something stupid. Please look before you leap.

  5. 2000's Globalization is a power shift resulting in time with the decline of the west and the rise of the east! 

    Financially and socially

  6. I miss the following: Globalization, via offshoring, imports with laboral dumping and immigration is making European workers compete with all the workers in the rest of the world, so that their wages will tend to converge. Capitalists have found an immense stock of cheap labor force in the Third World. This will make European workers lose at least half their real wages in a couple of decades and will bring the worst of capitalism back to Europe. No wonder if French workers vote Front National.

  7. You think it's bad right now?  With an advanced form of JIT manufacturing and massive sums of capital mixed with decentralization of factory ownership, MNC's will be able to shift their labor demands at a whip, pitting continent against continent and driving downward pressure on the price of labor.  Imagine working for GM in Milan, Italy one day and the next day they're in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and the following day they're in Tijuana, Mexico.  All MNC's will have to do is create a product in a design lab and email the specs to the manufacturer with the units needed and wait for it to arrive on shelves.  It's already happening now but in the future, as economies of scale increases it will be on a massive scale.  MNC's will be able to mobilize entire nations over the course of hours. 

  8. Globalization destroys national identity and makes your vote worthless, because of corporation greed, corruption in politics, and upheaval of every area of civilization.

  9. sri chitanya had copied this video and kept their school title.

  10. Globalization is only one problem, Americanization the other, and I'm an American saying this.

  11. Can I get a copy of the script to use with students?  Please email to [email protected]

    Many thanks.

  12. From an American perspective on globilization
    #1 American workers are being merged into a global labor pool where they must directly compete for jobs with workers on the other side of the globe that make less than ten percent of what an average American worker makes. In such an environment, it's inevitable that jobs are going to flow away from areas where labor is expensive and to areas where labor is cheaper.

    #2 Globalization has caused the U.S. trade deficit to absolutely explode. In 1985, the U.S. trade deficit with China was 6 million dollars for the entire year. In the month of August alone, the U.S. trade deficit with China was over 28 billion dollars.

    #3 Today, the United States spends approximately $3.90 on Chinese goods for every $1 that China spends on goods from the United States. This represents a massive transfer of wealth from the American people to China.

    #4 According to a new study conducted by the Economic Policy Institute, if the U.S. trade deficit with China continues to increase at its current rate, the U.S. economy will lose over half a million jobs this year alone.

    #5 The United States has lost approximately 42,400 factories since 2001.

    #6 The United States has already lost a 32 percent of its manufacturing jobs since the year 2000.

    #7 Even high technology industries are leaving America. Manufacturing employment in the U.S. computer industry is actually lower in 2010 than it was in 1975.

    #8 In 1959, manufacturing represented 28 percent of all U.S. economic output. In 2008, it represented only 11.5 percent.

    #9 As of the end of 2009, less than 12 million Americans worked in manufacturing. The last time that less than 12 million Americans were employed in manufacturing was in 1941.

    #10 With so much manufacturing leaving the United States, is it any wonder why people can't find jobs? The "official" unemployment rate in the United States has been at nine and a half percent or above for 14 consecutive months.

    #11 Today, there are at least 1.5 million "99ers" – those Americans that have completely exhausted all 99 weeks of unemployment benefits and that still do not have jobs.

    #12 America's dependence on foreign oil also represents a shocking transfer of wealth from the American people to the oil exporters of the Middle East. Back in 1980, the United States imported approximately 37 percent of the oil that is use. Now they import nearly 60 percent of the oil that they use.

    #13 Energy imports account for about approximately one-fourth of the U.S. trade deficit.

    #14 In states such as Mississippi, people spend approximately 6.35 percent of their incomes just on gasoline, according to a recent report by the National Resources Defense Council.

    #15 Americans end up paying to support American workers one way or another. Either they buy American-made products and services that provide jobs for American workers, or they pay to support unemployed American workers on welfare. Today, over 42 million Americans are on food stamps. A record number of Americans are receiving long-term unemployment benefits. One way or another, Americans are going to pay to take care of American workers.

    #16 The U.S. trade deficit is running about 40 or 50 billion dollars a month in 2010. The United States spends 40 to 50 billion more on goods and services from the rest of the world each month than they spend on goods and services from themselves. That means that by the end of the year, approximately half a trillion dollars (or more) of their wealth will have left the United States for good.

    #17 All of this wealth leaving the United States is having a huge impact on the standard of living of the average Americans. Ten years ago, the United States was ranked number one in average wealth per adult. In 2010, the United States has fallen to seventh.

    #18 It's now just a matter of time until India is going to pass us as an economic power. In fact, the economy of India is projected to become larger than the U.S. economy by the year 2050.

    #19 It's now being projected that China will soon dwarf America as an economic power. One prominent economist now says that the Chinese economy will be three times larger than the U.S. economy by the year 2040. According to one recent study, China could become the global leader in patent filings by next year.

    #20 China has been accumulating a gigantic mountain of dollars from all of the wealth that has been sending them each month, and they have been lending massive amounts of money back. Over the past few decades, the communist Chinese have been able to accumulate approximately $2.5 trillion in foreign currency reserves, and the U.S. government now owes them close to 900 billion dollars. They constantly have to send top government officials over there to beg them to continue to lend money. This is a direct threat not only to the financial system, but also to national security.

    So, in light of those facts, anyone out there that can defend the position that globalization is good and that they should be happy that they're being merged into a one world economy?

    Sadly, there's few politicians in either major political party that will talk of the negative effects of the emerging one world economy, almost as if there's an unspoken consensus that globalism is the future and that it is a good thing for America and other countries.
    But it is not a good thing for America. Unless fundamental changes are made, America will continue to bleed wealth, will continue to bleed factories and will continue to bleed jobs.
    The American people should grow some backbone and start saying "NO" to globalization, otherwise, If allowed to continue to vote for politicians that support merging their economy with economies that allow workers to be paid slave labor wages, then they're going to see more waves of horrific unemployment which will continue to see the standard of living of middle class Americans diminish.

    This is not a drill. America is being de-industrialized. One of the greatest economic machines in the history of the world is being dismantled.
    Eventually, all cities are going to end up looking like Detroit at worst if this is to continue.

  13. One of the best video! I admire your work! 
    If you do not mind what program can be used for such a complex video?

  14. Excellently done! The material is logically explained, the pictures with figures are interesting and adequate. I'd like to have a script to use it at my classes. Could you send me the script via email: [email protected]? (thanks from Russia/Siberia: Novosibirsk!).  

  15. Globalization leads to Democratization – The road to democracy is to  checkmate dictatorships.  Democratization leads to totalitarian governance. Totalitarian is a bigger form of dictatorship. Totalitarianism leads to New World Order. Why do we care we are a saeculum. Where's Asklepios when you need him.

  16. Which countries led Early Globalization?

  17. what is the program / programs used to design this video ? 

  18. Today, many economic, political, cultural or ecological relationships are not explainable from a national perspective.

  19. Globalisation no good 4 u! Many countries no benefit!

  20. All the teachers in the comments asking for the script to use it at school
    And I sit here with a bracket-text of the video's script and have to fulfill it as a homework.

  21. hi, could i please have the script of this video?? would really appreciate.. my e-mail address: ([email protected])

  22. The Globalization of Food • Explained With Maps:

  23. Globalization means the end of the world. By that I mean it is expending joy and peace because even those benefiting from the wealth will find their joy short-lived. The reason for this is that globalization is shrinking the world into a global village while the people are retaining their greed and selfishness. You see, these features cannot fit together in the world that globalization is evolving.

  24. This is the best globalization video ever!! I want to send it to my teacher if only it doesnt have the subtitle:(

  25. Great video! Is it possible to have the transcript please? I eventually need it for my CLIL class in economics. Thank you!

  26. Can I have the script of the video? I need to study globalization and my teacher picked this video. Please answer

  27. Great video. Keep it up

  28. why is she talking so sloooooowwww !?

  29. i would love the transcript so i could use it for my assignment. is it possible to get it?

  30. Great video! Is it possible to have the transcript please? I eventually need it for my  class . Thank you very much!
    my e-mail is [email protected]

  31. How could I get the script? I will be so glad if you send it to me : [email protected]… thank you

  32. Are they serious? Globalization is nothing more than the NWO imprinting and attempting to rule every industrial motif in the world. If one power can control the work industry, he has successfully created a world of slavery. Some countries do not have the greed of this country and therefore do not need the aide or concepts this country uses to program and control its people. I'm against Globalization for one reason, Outside of the US, those countries should be allowed to charge whatever they want to charge for their goods without fear of loosing economic stability if the prices are too high. America over charges for everything and we foolish citizens continue to buy and be good consumers. a gallon of milk in SC costs $4.64 which is more than a gallon of gas. How can you globalize an economic structure if you cannot control the inflation you impose on your own country's people? If we stop buying into the consumer based slavery, the prices will drop and globalization cannot take place as the workers here will begin to lose their jobs as the products begin to stop selling, over stocks will have to be sold at a cheaper price leaving outside countries in a position to bargain better deals to stimulate their own economies without having to submit to the revolving door of a dictatorship that controls how they pay their bills and eat.

  33. The world is becoming more and more interconnected. Globalization changes how people consume, work and live almost everywhere on the world. Today, many economic, political, cultural or ecological relationships are not explainable from a national perspective. At the same time, a controversial debate about the consequences of globalization has begun.
    But what are the main causes for globalization? In what areas it is most prominent? And who are the winners and looser of globalization?

    These are the questions this animated Video clip of the WissensWerte series deals with. 

    WissensWerte is a project of the german non-profit organisation

  34. Hell yeah! My new fav vid!

  35. Can you please send me the script, to [email protected] ?

  36. so distracted by how cute the video is

  37. It's a great video about globalization . But I think there is a small mistake that TAIWAN is not a country but a part of China. The only difference between PRC and Taiwan is that we have different administration due to some politic issues.Thx

  38. Nice Vid. And did she say Newly Industrialised "countries" like Taiwan and South Korea?? HAHA, Great Job!

  39. This is a nice, well produced video, but if you are looking for a more academic conceptual approach to globalization. Tjek out:

  40. Taiwan is not a country, that's not right.

  41. Please complete this survey about Globalization! It's really short!

  42. I think it's crazy how much they have lowered transportation costs for products that are shipped overseas. it amazes me even more how they can keep the prices of the items that are shipped still so cheap even though they are shipped overseas.

  43. hi, from where did you get the percentages..

    Anything to back it up … any citations or references to prove your data

    call of cost 99%
    container shipping transportation 99%
    airfright cost 88%

    tarrifs.. import quota bans.. open new markets / remove barriers
    ECONOMY : wordwide exports have increased by 30 folds in last 60 years
    Foreign Direct investment from 13 Billion USD to 1.8 Trillion USD by 2011

  44. shocked is there this much information on globalisation

  45. where can i find the transcript of this video ?

  46. I have to do a critical analysis about this video… someone help?

  47. economics bullshit

  48. Tai wan is a part of China, you make a serious mistake in this video

  49. The video is very well designed !! But to me I can hardly say that those countries are the winner of globalization. In developed countries(UK, France, USA), banks and multinational companies win, but factories and workers lose their jobs because of the deindustrialization, that leads to the rise of Trump, FN(France) and Brexit. In developing countries, the ensemble of the economy of the country grow(collectivism praise this), but the workers have been exploited and environment has been destroyed(democracy is against this). But sub-saharan countries, limited by the great power like US, Europe, Russia, China, seems to have no hope to develop truly.

  50. Globalisation – one half of the world riding on the other half's backs. Let's be honest: a lot of humanity consists of lazy bastards who just want to be reproduce and be carried along by more industrious people. Some middle-class westerners seem more than happy to go along with this to the detriment of everyone else.

  51. I think Taiwan is a part of Chian. It is not a individual country. To be a Chinese Citizen I hope you can fix this mistake.

  52. Fantastic illustration. Excelent digital graphics & political analysis.

  53. too general, it has a little to say about serious development.

  54. Hello from USIC !

  55. We have to watch this for education in university. Meh


  57. It is a nice video about how can people learn some knowledge on this topic. It is interested but it has a lack of real information relative to updated issues that some communities around the world is facing this new trend specially migration problems.

  58. When science and technology ( of transportation , communication , or military ) advance ,
    growth , complication and acceleration of economic and social activities are inevitable.
    Then , to maintain the soundness of these activities,
    policies and laws necessarily become scaled up , decentralized and sophisticated .
    Moreover , it is policies and laws that improve the development and spread of science and technologies.

    Globalization is an inevitable growth in spatial scale of economic and social activities , having good aspects and bad ones.

    It is policies and laws that maintain the soundness of economic and social activities.
    Further, we can’t realize policies without human resources , as we can’t utilize technologies without material resources ,
    or as we can't develop appropriate science and technologies without considering natural and social environments.

    We must achieve better international or global governance to enhance the good aspects , uplifting ourselves.

    (–article-history–blog–1–lovelucifer_12266020322 )

  59. Ok lets get out of the mind-control seat for a moment and look past all the positiveness, smiles, glam, glory about Globalization for a moment. It really sounds like a wet dream. But dont you find it odd that they are coming up with this now, after all this time? Perhaps we should focus on finding out the hidden agenda. The push for globalization is happening very suddenly and in a short period of time. What is it we are moving towards…really? What are they preparing for?

  60. Whats with the communist at 1:06

  61. is there any french subtitles ?

  62. Concise and complete, great job!

  63. I have to wonder about the intellect and the level of knowledge on ANY subject of the people who put out this video and who never even noticed, or just didn't care if we noticed that they depicted the rotation of the earth as being the OPPOSITE of how it really rotates! Their literal 'global knowledge' appears to be lacking on some very fundamental levels!

  64. Globalisation, that global goal of the globalists, has proven to be the most divisive, destructive, politically genocidal policy that any ruling entity has ever made. The global evidence demonstrates what the global goals are of those globalists, in light of all their destructive global policies and all the evidence that goes with it, that tells them everything they globally touch ends up in global disasters – they are intensifying their global intent – leading to the inevitable global collapse of globalisation.

  65. reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee


  67. One of the best productions I am yet to view

  68. Gs 447 at KFUPM anyone?

  69. This is nice video!!!

  70. Нас застааляют это учить на английском

  71. Excellent Video I now fully understand what globalization means ,not only is the video well presented the lecture is quite simple to understand

  72. This video presents a very limited, one-dimensional understanding of globalization. Not a reliable source to study this topic.

  73. Who is watching in 2018

  74. GLOBALISATION” has become the buzzword of the last two decades. The sudden increase in the exchange of knowledge, trade and capital around the world, driven by technological innovation, from the internet to shipping containers, thrust the term into the limelight.

  75. лайк если с кафедры инъяза

  76. puro wn tu video kieeeperokieee

  77. The Global Resource Bank Network effects a Social, Ecological and Economic globalization at

  78. One thing that pisses me off is . The is a game called Witcher which is completely based on Polish mythology the game was created in Poland the Witcher 3 which became big . The game has multiple languages which in fact should be only one the Polish one which is the original one , many have played the game in English which is disgusting to see a complete Polish company making a game based on their culture/mythology and adding a English language , now they are making a new game which would please the more western part of the world , it's called cyberpunk 2077 , it about American subculture were in fact they should be making game about their cultures and so on . They should be representing their own Country and show their beautiful culture . There are many games like Assassin creed Odessy which is based of Creek mythology but yet you don't have Creek language . I don't know it's just disgusting.

  79. Nice propaganda.

  80. assignment in the contemporary world, had to make an essay due in one hour 😭

  81. A serious mistake, Tai wan is a part of China.

  82. Hi from Colombia.

    Thanks. Very helpful aid for my teen students class;)

  83. Phạm Huy Bình – the scrift pls! Thanks
    he world is becoming more and more interconnected. Never before in human history has there existed such an intense relationship between international trade, comunication and politics. The term globalization is all around us. Sometimes as an oppotunity, sometimes is a new challenge. But what exactly does globalization mean and what are its ramifications. Even though the term globalization is frequently used. It is not easy to define.
    One thing is clear in today’s world economic, environment, social and political issues and problems are no longer limited to the national level because the world has become so interdependent. Reasonable governance can only be realized within broader groups of stakeholders. For example state confederations such as the European Union. Regional economic organizations like the OECD or the whole world.
    ​Today modern communication technology and media like radio, TV, phones or internet, our global standard this means that information can be distributed worldwide in real time at affordable prices. For instance the average price of telephone call from New York to London has decreased by 99 percent since 1930. International TV broadcaster deliver information, opinions and cultural products to the most remote and person dropped by 65 percent since 1930, due to low fuel prices and development of new means of tranportation in particular container shipping. Air freight costs have dropped even more 88 perent. The freight charges for a ton of coffee deliverd from Asia to Europe only accounts for one percent its price. Such developments are the result of technological advancements, but there are some aspects which were introduced pirposofully as well. Since the 1980s thericher more industrialized countries work toward removing trade barries such as tariffs import quotas and bans worldwide. Thus new technologies decreasing transportation costs and the liberalization of international trade has made it possible and profitable for major companies to produce and sell worldwide. Let’s take a glance at the three main areas of globalization, the economic sphere is of particular impotance. It is a major catalyst for globalization and is at the same time the most affected area, international exports have increased 30 fold in the last 60 years. The foreign direct investment of companies and government has increased substantially. It’s risen from 13 billion dollars per year in 1970 to more than 1.8 trilion today. Many companies are searching for new markets and oppotunities for cheap production in countries with low wages and soft environment regulations. The number of such multinational corporations rose from 7.000 to 65.000 since the 1990s.
    Similiar to the world economy international politics is also more interdependent today. Most important policy issues like climate change, the financial crisis or terrorism do not care about borders. Such problems cannot be solved by a single state alone. Politics tries to react by attemping to make decisions in broader groups of countries like the EU, the G20 or even the United Nations. At the same time, there are more and more international pressure groups which do not belong to a particular state. These so-called non- government organizations or NGOs are able to exert influence in politics related to their field of work. Examples include Greenpeace Amnesty international or attac, a global public forum evolves through the previously-mentioned new possibilities of communication . NGOs use this in order to influence politics. International political problems and the emergence of new global actors like NGOs and multinational corporations lead to a decrease of the political latitude of single states, especially of small states.
    The influence of globalization can be observed in our culture as well as one aspect is often referred to as Mik world, the term describes how western culture especially popular culture becomes dominant and destroy cultural diversity. The global distribution of western music, news, products and even English language promotes this effect. To counter globalization we can also see backlash. For example people are increasingly returning to local and regional cultural customs.
    Globalization is a very complex development. Some countries benefit more, others benefit less. Newly industrialized countries like Taiwan and South Korea as well as the rapidly developing India, Brazil and China gained considerable advantage from their integration into the world economy. They can build up their factories with foreign direct investment and infrastructure and sell their products internationally. Due to the low wages in there countries these products are very competitive on the world market. China represents a perfect example of how the broader population can benefit too. Its fast economic growth has enabled 500 million Chinese to leave extreame poverty.
    On the other hand, there are whole regions who are suffering more than they are benefiting from globalization. This is paticularly true for most sub-Saharan Africa countries, such countries are not prepared sufficiently for tightened international competition the cheap products produced by industrial and newly industrialized countries flood the local markets and destroy local productive facilities. Moreover these countries are not attractive for foreign investor, thus they cannot walk the same road as the newly industrialized country.
    Global is both a threat and an oppotunity for industrialized countries. On the one hand, they can acquire new markets for their industrial goods, on the other hand, they are facing the competition of newly industrialized countries that can produce at lower costs. Especially the production of simple goods is no longer profitable and very few products like textiles toys or white goods are still produced industrialized countries. It becomes clear the globalization takes place at many areas such as politics culture and the economy declining costs of transport and communication and the global liberalisation of markets have fuelled this trend. While some countries benefit from globalization. It is exacerbated the problems of others, thus globalization presents both new oppotunities and new challenges.

  84. So helpful , and great graphics !

  85. Well globalization ….
