Globalization of social issues


Globalization is more than the flow of money and commodities; it is the growing interdependence of the world's people through "shrinking space, shrinking time and disappearing borders". This offers great opportunities for enriching people's lives and creating a global community based on shared values. But markets have been allowed to dominate the process, and the benefits and opportunities have not been shared equitably. The "breakneck" speed of globalization is also making people's lives less secure, as the spread of global threats to well-being outpaces action to tackle them.
