The extent that globalization contributes to economic sustainability for all peoples of the world can be debated from two perspectives. The first is that it helps promote economic sustainability and the other is that it is a negative force on sustainability for all people. Most people think that it is a positive effect, but this is a misconception. It is not good for most people of the world, in fact it is only good for those countries that have lots of money. The majority of countries with moderate or low annual incomes do not profit from globalization. The idea of globalization has done nothing for developing countries except that it has helped them fall deeper into the hole while they are exploited by transnational corporations and powerful or corrupt governments, globalization needs to be reconsidered.

Dick Cheney said that “..few people have been harmed...”, but he is lying. All he wants to do is make sure that the US remains an economic super power. He does not care about the poorer countries, nor the affect that the corporations that reside in his country have on the countries that they are exploiting. He is saying this all because he is patriotic which in this case is not a good thing when it involves the survival of the human species not just the Americans. Proof of this is that most transnational corporations reside in North America and the United States. These companies then have outlets through and around poorer countries. They bring money into the US, but they pay hardly enough to survive on, in fact some get paid less then a dollar a day.

Many people believe that free trade is a despicable thing to do to these countries that have been completely uprooted due to globalization. There are huge rallies and protests against sweat shops which are owned and operated by these big budget commercial companies. The protesters know what goes on in these sweat shops. They know all about the horrible working conditions that the workers suffer day in and day out. They know about the less then minimum wage due to the “Free Trade” which should be outlawed. They know that everyday people are beaten to death or not paid because they “Didn't meet their quota”. How can they be allowed to do this? Well that is simple, they bring the US and high economic, developed countries profits. Is it really worth it. Should we be ruthlessly working these people to death? So that we, the developed countries can have an extra movie every month, or maybe get those new tires? Definitely not.

People like George W. Bush, and Dick Cheney care about only one thing: profits. The United States is one of the richest countries in the world. Yet, it is in last place for donating a percentage of its annual GNI to help developing countries. Shouldn't it be way up at the top? Shouldn't it easily be able to donate less than one percent to help countries that do not even have a GDI of one tenth of the United States'? If people like Dick Cheney say things like “...very few people have been harmed by it[globalization]...”, and people are believing them only for the sole reason that they are disillusioned by the media then what will happen to our planet and our economy in the future. If definitely cannot get better, no it will definitely become worse when there are millions dying every year because they cannot afford to buy food or sell their wares or home grown produce.

It is clear to see that our economy should not be based on a system that has been used for far too long. What ever happened to innovating the current to make them better? We need to force the governments to stop exploiting and start helping to make our entire planet better. No longer should we use current forms of “Colonization” that was used hundreds of years ago which still to this day has had negative effects, which still to this day has made these developing countries who were used for colonization way behind. Should we wish to help restore our past problems we must first stop using this method that has done nothing but slow down progress.

To conclude, the extent that globalization help to promotes sustainable prosperity for all peoples of the world is not much. The only people that it has ever helped, and will ever help are those who live in the countries that are globalizing this world. Not the countries that are be used for globalization. History has shown us one thing. When we move into other peoples land, and tell them how to live, what to do, where to do it, they do not react well, and sometimes huge conflicts get started over it. Globalization is just a fancy word to describe a form of human parasitism. We need to find a new way of surviving based on a mutualism. Lets stop this form of globalization.

Don't take this the wrong way, but really, optimistic bullshitting about the total control globalisation/capitolism has on our society is pointless.

Yes, it sucks.

No, it's not going to change.

You'd do better to put your time and effort into something achievable. I know this sounds cynical, but the fact is, if you took Figth Club's initiative, blew up the datacentre's of all the worlds financiers, and erased all outstanding debt, it would take no time at all for new creditors to spring up, and with higher interest, to cover the risk of loss. The fact is, that by removing capitolisation you remove competition, which is the driving force behind change and development.

interesting. you compare globalization to a parasite. and you say we should stop it. but realistically, is this possible? what methods would be taken to stop it? cutting poorer countries out of the loop of communication? that would not settle well with anybody.

also: you compare percents and values of income being donated, but make a comment of the united states not donating a higher percentage, and because it is so rich you say that the percentage should be higher, but really can you expect a country to donate a higher percentage because its wealthier?

very interesting.

globalization and capitalism without regulation can lead to massive ineqalities and injustices.I think that the best way forward might be some kind of global treaty to regulate capitalism and to prevent injustices .Governments should also do more toensure that citizens all share in the wealth

communism, fascism, socialism, nazism. whats common on all these?
the belief that central planning by a government works.
it doesn't. central planing does not work.
it ends up damaging its people and restricting their freedoms.

free market (laissez faire) capitalism is the only way that people can be free to do with their money what they choose. this ensures creativity, motivation and innovation. globalization helps poor countries become wealthier, like china is becoming now. look back at the 60's when they were strict maoists and their people were starving. enter globalization they're now much better off.

yes and no.Capitalism has been proven to be the better system than communism.anyone with a brain can see that but it also creates a lot of inequalities if there is no kind of regulation to ensure some kind of fairness look at russia in the 90s,latin america ,and a lot of countries in africa where the wealth is (was) concentrated in the hands of the minority and the vast majority have a very low standard of living and compare it with countries like sweden which have a very high standard of living because of regulation
