I see no actually reason to be opposed to globalisation. It's a pure benefit for people and the economy

It's almost always worth trading with countrys? And who cares about your made up man
2019-10-20 06:41
Each country had different conditions for trading. Let's not forget that a Government would get revenue. Anothing this about globalisation is that if you are not a big country, you are actually risking businesses in your country, especially sunrise businesses because the competition will be better. Therefore domestic businesses will fail and international businesses will profit. Depending on how big or small these busiensses are, they could also affect employment. When businesses close, it leads to more unemployment as people leave due to... you know... the business closing

An increase of drug use will also reduce life expectancy, reducing a country's HDI (Human Development Index) or Economic Development. an increase in drug use will also increase robbery and drug use which will increase a country's crime rate, people being less inclined to invest in a country or certain area. With hookers... don't even know what to say

Drugs have that effect because they are illegal( would say alcohol does it without being illegal) and there is nothing wrong with paying for sex, if it is a thing in demand what is the problem with producing it. Keeping it illegal makes it worse for everyone involved. We should do like what AUS does( not fully informed on it but heard good things about it)
2019-10-20 19:53
Any drug would have that effect, both illegal and legal. However, Illegal drugs are much much more dangerous. Well another issue is prostitution affects mental health in many ways which may affect motivation to do things as well and then comes a similar issue to drugs. What about prostitution in Australia?
2019-10-20 23:33
Well the thing is with an increase in crime, it would actually cause investors to have less prospects in investing in a business or whatever of that certain economy due to the risks, as a result Foreign Direct Investment and Portfolio investment will fall which is actually very important for more economic growth. Also if the demand for hookers and drugs increase, it would actually inflate the prices so that's still bad. The financial flow will also be disrupted due to business' losses and strange movement in finance in the economy
2019-10-20 06:52
Furthermore, Tariffs aren't the only trade protection thingy a government can use. There are subsidies, quotas, incentives and local content rules. Subsidies won't really affect Free Trade Agreements but Quotas will. Quotas are the roof or floor level of prices that the Government sets. This would be used to prevent dumping (When an international business sells a product into another economy at an extremely lower price compared to the domestic competititor, reducing international competitiveness). Not only that, an economy could also use a tariff to prepare for crisis, just like how Japan has a tariff on their rice so that if a crisis occurs again like the aftermath of Japan, they could sustain themselves with their own food supply

I don't know much but I guess some reasons why you wouldn't trade with other countries or attempt to expand near their region is just because of the relationship you hold with them, or even their beliefs as a country, or maybe their corruption levels, I guess you could include the public image in there as well. So although it could be profitable for both countries, maybe it's not the best decision overall. Another reason could be the "developing your own clothing" type of stores. If you need to rely on these type of goods from other countries to cloth your people maybe it's best to not accept other countries branding but help your own people get their stores running
2019-10-20 07:19
+1. If you can't produce a certain product, you may rely on specialization where you manufacture a specific product while another country produces a specific product so you can rely on that import while they import yours
2019-10-20 08:25

Oh true I heard that actually is very beneficial, when you exchange and specialize in products and stuff

That's not the thing. Indonesia almost broke off their FTA agreement with Australia because Australia decided to declare West Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and since Indonesia is mainly occupied with Muslims, they didn't agree... except for Jokowi. He deserves a better country

But then again, a big thing why globalization can be bad is because of exploitation. Multinational companies like Coca-Cola, Monsanto, and Pharmaceutical companies can go in and exploit the shit out of your country and people.
2019-10-20 07:22
good point
2019-10-20 07:53

Thanks xD, only reason I know this is because I had to do a case study on India about it. This is one thing I truly thank my teacher for lol
2019-10-20 08:03
That actually isn't a thing. When you say exploitation, is it when companies dump goods into an economy, reducing international competitiveness in a domestic market? Is it the materials they use for their products? Or is it the sweatshops?

Um less to do economically and more to do with the environment and the inhabitants. I'm talking about like dumping toxic waste into local dependant water bodies, taking more water out of aquifiers than is sustainable or whatever. There's also taking control of remote villages or communities by buying off police or men. I forgot about the one for Monsanto, it was something like producing seeds that give crops but without producing seeds, so you'd need to buy more seeds, and those seeds are sold as great yield, but they come with financial instability (loans or debts) and they deteriate the ground so it's impossible for the farmers to actually pay them back. Stuff like that
2019-10-20 08:42
Environmental sustainability and externalities make perfect sense yeah I got what you mean then
2019-10-20 08:44
It's inevitable You either join the global markets and chains of added value and make moneys)) but also become more dependent on other countries or remain alone like North Korea
2019-10-20 07:24
So then it's not inevitable
2019-10-20 08:27
If you prefer living in a communist dictatorship shithole then yes
2019-10-20 11:08
Or you could just have a normal dictatorship country with little contribution in trade flows
2019-10-20 11:50
No, you couldn't.
2019-10-20 11:51
Yeah ik XD Anyways enuf fuckin around, you should understand that it's not about globalisation being inevitable, it's about the effects it will cause in an economy since it doesn't just come from trade flows, it may also come from migration, financial flows, technology and forgot the fifth

The fact that I'm an economics student means I can just pretend I know everything right? Cuz I'm failing...

Generally it is right I guess
2019-10-20 12:12
2019-10-20 12:12
Anyways if you think you wrote some dumb shit just say it was a bait.
2019-10-20 12:13
fair, I never say bait tho, no point
2019-10-20 12:14
K men🧐👌🏿
2019-10-20 12:15
u can have reasons against it, but cant do shit tbh. its gonna happen
2019-10-20 08:37
Well you see, there's also #14 when he said North Korea and let's not forget, any country could choose to not create an FTA with another country or break it off
2019-10-20 08:45
at the end ur gonna be 'alone' cuz it has less advantages than disadvantages. also nk woulda been wiped out (at least their shitty goverment) if it wasnt for china
2019-10-20 09:24
and how does this relate to economics and globalisation? Like I really don't think you know what it is
2019-10-20 09:27
if u think it doesnt relate, then u might not know what comes w globalization
2019-10-20 11:02
#38 and also i still don't understand wtf #29 was saying

I don't think you fully understand all the bad effects it has on ordinary people. It is essentially Malthusian in nature and I never particularly agreed with that guy.
2019-10-20 09:28
Please elaborate
2019-10-20 11:57
Thomas Malthus. British scholar who basically said that since populations tend to increase exponentially while food production increases linearly, the weak should suffer what they must. Harsh conditions for the poor will kill them off at a faster rate which is good for everyone else. A lot of people tend toward this philosophy today, it's really scary if you ask me.
2019-10-20 12:46
That actually is
2019-10-20 12:47
Economy lol, it's all ones and zero plus it's digital.
2019-10-20 11:13
That would be binary code
2019-10-20 11:58
It is also more pollution than products made locally. That's a good enough reason on it's own.
2019-10-20 11:17
Globalism helps economy, but puts strain on local culture and traditions.
2019-10-20 11:58
2019-10-20 12:03
Globalism and globalisation is not the same thing. The first one if an ideology, the second one is the side effect of technological progress.
2019-10-20 12:00
2019-10-20 12:03
all of you are getting baited from this guy almost every time idk how he is doing it
2019-10-20 12:11
It's hardly bait, he just posts regular political questions and argues dumb but commonly held viewpoints. Anyone who sees the title is going to want to add their opinion.

2019-10-20 23:37
You can have the trading and information exchange of globalism (free trade, free internet, etc) without the mass immigration of the third world into the wealthy Western nations. There is absolutely no reason a global economy requires large scale demographic change, especially bringing millions of unskilled, unproductive and often violent immigrants into developed nations. Work visas or immigration should be for an intelligent and professional engineer from Denmark moving to Australia to work at a company, not Mexicans picking fruit or Filipinos milking cows. All that does is drive down the wage for regular working people by making them compete with people used to living in poverty.
2019-10-20 12:55
someone here gets it

im supported for communism if u find a good leader, that is also for the people and not for the elite.

People say that we should be more economical to save nature, but still, the same people support globalism? It harms nature because you move different things all across the world. It damages the domestic markets when their products get overrun by widely known brands, their quality is better, more known etc. Organic food gets shipped from foreign countries and LOCAL organic food is completely ignored. Even tho those foreign companies create more jobs, the money won't stay in the country, it flows to the company's motherland, so it doesn't contribute as much as the company from your home country would. Globalization benefits the wealthy more than the poor, it doesn't benefit nearly as much the poor as it benefits the wealthy, they buy those foreign brands to their markets and people buy it from their markets and the wealthy market owners obviously get their piece of the pie. Globalization could and probably already plays a huge role in our politics. It won't prevent our resource consumption.
