1. Whot is it? Whot does



It involves the stretrhing and deepening of social relations and institutions across geographical boundarles such that, day'to-day aciivities are increasingly influenced by events happening on the other side of the globe. Also, the activities of local communities can have significant global reverberations
Globalization means that many chains of political, economic and social activity are becoming inter regional or inter-contin€ntal in scope. L;nkages between societies are well documented in history. The difference today is the intensification of levels of interaction and ;nter connectedess between societies. The modern global system stretches social relations through new dimensions ol activity through phenomena such as communication networks and new information technology. These differ from the historical forms o{ globalization as the networks of connections are far more extensive, far more intense and have a far more massive impact on a global scale. Globalization is a multi-dimensional phenomenon, involving diverse domains of activity and interaction, including economjc, political, technological, military, legal, cultural and environmental.

The significance of globalization differs for individuals, groups and countries. Obviously, societies that are intensely connected are sitnificantly impacted by events happening elsewhere. That said, seemingly disconnected socicties can also find themselves profoundly affected by globalization.
Globalization is rharacterised by asymmetry. Not all peopie will have similar access to global network5 and infrasiructures. At the same time, such networks have an uneqLral effect on the well being ot people, classes, ethnic groupings and genders.

Jhis movement gained inrpetus under the direction of the World Trade Organization \\/hich encouraged barrier Jree trade on an international basis. The developed nations supported this movement as they would now have new markets for the industrial goods they produced and the less developed nations were encouraged by the rapid economic growth of the 4 'Asian ti8ers' (Hong Kong, South Korea, Singapore and Taiwan) to try this route to economic development and employment opportunities.
Llnforeseen results were that subsistence farmers were displaced and became slLrm dwellers in urban re8ions and the small and medium industries in the lesser developed nations were unable to compete against the cheap goods sold by the transnational corporations and the franchisees of multinational corporations based in the developed nations. Furthermore, the tax structures and environmental laws of many small countries, desperate for investment by transnational corporations, tlrere negatively impacted by Sovernments/ attempts to woo such investm€nts. ln the present economic climate, while most people a8ree that the world economy has lmproved to some degree thanks to globalization, the reality is that most people argue that this has becn at the expense of ihe quality of life of the poorest peoples ln the Third World nations and the envlronment.

The transfer of technology and jobs notwithstanding, the loss of sovereign power and cultural and economic independence to the EU and the US is the main result observed in many Third World nations.

3 1 Passible Iinks between Globolizotian ond Paverty Presently, a global agenda seemingly focuses upon the possible links between globaiization and poverty, epitomized by the United Nations Millennium Summit in September 2000. Among the values and principles meniioned in the United Nations Millennium Declaration, the links between globalization and poverty were
The central challenge we face toclay is to ensute lhat globaltzation becones a postlive force far alllhe worid s people lls benefls are unevenly shared. $lhle its costs are unevenly d$lnbuted

Furthermore, in a show of unguarded cptimisrn about translnting rhetorical intentions into an operative plan for development and poverty eradicatlon, the leaders o{ the world committed themselves to the followirrg deadline:
We furlhet tesalve lo tial\,e by 20't5 lhe propanictt of the world s people \rha earn less ;itan ane dallat a day ryhc sufter han hutget and wha leck access 1() safe

This declaraticn cf good intention demonstrates, at least at the rhetorical level, that there is an emerging consensus withln the international community about the importance of the links between globalization and poverty and inequality, and that globalization should fult,ll a positive role in reducing and eradicatinB poverty. At the same time, there is a serious disagreement about whether the link between globalizat;on and poverty and inequalily is a positive or a negative one; that is, whether globalization creates more poverly or reduaes it. Moreover, ii is not completely evident that globaiization can reduce poverty. Alter all, divergent ideological, philosophical, normative, and theoretical epproaches 1o international relations and internationil political economy Benerare dil{ereni interpretations of similar {acls. The assumption that the rnvisible and polent force5 o{ Blobalization {j'rcluding markets, science, and technologv) will resolve the problems of inequ.lity and poverty is not completely reassuring, considering the lingerlng realiiy of at !east a billion peopie l;ving in absolute povefiy.

It is becoming incrcasrngly evident, both in rhetoriral ternrs and in ihe actual

.ubslanti-l lliks belween glob!lizatroir and povcrty. For insiance, the Urited Nations Development Pro8ramme (UNDP) sus8ests that colrntries should link their poverty-reliel programs not ony to their national poiicies but also to their internalional economic and financial policies. Ihus, in a world of increasrng
cconomlc integration and globalization, those links can be crucial. For instance, since the Blobal recession ln lhe 1980s it has become evident that lhere is a direct relationshlp between external debt and poverty.

of states .nd iilernalronal institutions, that ihere are tangible


At the same time, what remains ambiguous is the character and direction of these possible links, ultimately interpreted according to divergent paradigms of internatlonal political economy and disparate normative views, such as realist, liberal and radical viervs. For instance, the liberalview of global economic relations, based on mutual and complex interdependence, reeards international economic relations between developed and devcloping countries as mutuallV beneficial and benign. ln this view, the forces of globali2atlon will eventually stimulate the economlc growth in the developing nations, thus reducing and even eradicating poverty. ln contrast, a more radical view maintains that the global economrc relations between Northern hemisphere and Southern hemisphere are asymmetrical and approximates a type of zero sum relationship, accordiog to which the forces of
globalization exacerbate inequality and poverty.

ln logical terms, speculation on thc potential links between globalization and poverty prod uces the following ten pos5ibilities:
(a) Glaboltzotion causes ond deepens poverty; (b) Glabolization r€du(es ond even resolves the problem of poverty; (c)There is no necessary link between globalizatian and povefty; (d)Ihere is o negotive impa.t in the:hort term, tutning inta o pasitive impact an the avetallecanamy in the lang run; (e) Iher€ is a positive itnpoa:f in the shorl tenn, tuntnO tnla a rcaattve tmpoct an the cvercllercnonty in the lang Lerm; (f) there is a negalive tnpact ta a ctrtoin pa)nt, then the relationship becomes neutrol or insiq niJicont; (g) Iherc is a pasitive tff)poct ta o te.toin painl. then the rtlatianship becames n eutral or insi g n iJtca nt ; (h) Iherc is 6 neutral ar itjsignifi(ont t.lotionship ot the beginnirtg, then becomes o

4. Multinational Corporations
MNCs such os Nike, Sony,Ioyoto, Hondo ond Ford ore todoy a driving fotce behind globalizotion, moking warld trode ond finoncial morkets more integroted. MNCs naturally engage in Foreign Direct Investment iFDl), pLlmping money into host economies, advancing the pace of the local economy and translerring technology as well as knowledge and skills. Most MNCs are from Japan and the lJnited States (approx 89%), with about another 9% cominS from Iurope. Between 1993 and 1999 worldwide flow of FDltripled, and even in the midst of the'Asian Financial Crisis' in, FDI to the developing world was USS165 billion. long term interest in the host country and also implies that these MNCs have a profound effect on macroeconomic policy. They can respond to variations of interest rates by raising finance in the most favourable capital market. lhey can shift their demand for employment to countries that have the lowest elnployment costs. They can move their activities into the industries which give them the most benefits. The fact that MNC5 can act in these ways influences government policy and shapes economic strategles.

FDI involves


MNCs do more than just expand the amount of tapiial in an economy. They also increase technical skills and innovation of lhe host country. MNCs enable the local popuiation to learn business skills, such as production methods, management techniques and access to export markets. For example, if Toyota sets up a car plant ouiside of Japan, it would need to traln locals to ensure that high quality standards are retained. l{ Toyota gets a competitive advantage, the host counlries get the skills and jobs A {cw proven examples are SoLrth Korea and Singapore The economies of these two countries prospered through export drlven strate8ies that used cheap labour. This labour became skill{ul and cleative withirr a few decades. Korean firms Somsung, Kio and Hyundoi and Singapore's Creot;ve ate a few examples of 5Lrccessful local companies

It is however not uncommon to hear accusations thai MNCs are th€ new coloni2ers of the modern era, exploiting incentives designed to attract FDl, and cheap local labour. ln these .ases, the MNCs are not perceived to be Sivin8 ba.k to the local econorny ano generally not seen to be improving thc lives of their local workers. BLrreaucratic corruptlon and poor enforcement of local trade, Iabour and taxation pollciL's could be a possible reason for ihese so'called 'neo colonial' MNCs As a fesult, oniy a lew members of the elite actuallv benefit (personally) from the presence of these \4NCs. Also, poor standards cf €:ducation, traininB and people to developmenl amongst the local population may render it very ditlicult for '\4NCs translcr knowledge, skills and iechnology. lnevita[riy, the MNCs mLlst then rely l)eavily on expatriate manpcwer and the localg contir'ue to perceive lhemselve5 a5 a
poor and exploited underclass.

Far exomple, Chino h6 not hod extroordinory success in restricting the impoct af the lnternet an its domestic paliticsOften touted as wesiernization or Americanization, globalization has been regarded by many as an act of the West in imposing its cultural superiority on other less powerful nations. Aided by increasing technological advances in communications (transport, infrastructures, telecommunications networks and the World Wide Web), the impediment of geographical distances and national borders have vastly been reduced as an obstacle towards social interaction at a world wide level The phenomenon of the 'shrinking' state of the world where hLrndreds of kilometres are bridged by thc nlere click of a button through the internet or a mere day's flight frorn Iasl to West has led renowned theorists such as Ma.shall McLuhan to coin the phrase "Erlobol villoge" - a word that aptly illustrates ihe present conditions of the \ /ay we cu rrenlly live.

Nevertheless, globallzation should not be seen as something new or recent as since time pa5t, different individuals have embarked on the euphoric ambition of LinitinB the worlC under one particular order. ln fact, the<e previous efforts have historically eslab!shed certain lmportant foundational fundamentals that have paved the way Jor globalization to successfully take place. One such example ls the British colonlzation of most parts ol the world, r,rhere in thal process Entlish was instituted as lhe linguo Jronco of trade, eovernment and livinB. [ver since, English has become thc world s most lmportant language despite ihc small ratlo of people in the world who actually possesses the prowess and abilitv to applv the language. La.guage inevitably becomes a platform where culture is lransmilied to those who are instructcd ln that very langun8e which is taught. learnt for the purpose of lrade and communication wlth those in power, English ns a domlnanT !anguage therefore €xerts its '.,/ay of living over other \treaker nations Tele.ommunicetion technoioeres such as the telev;sion and the World Wide Web (not aoincidenlaliy discovered and invented bV the ciominant Western nalions) thu\ bring to those who own .ny of these technologies, some form ot culture that originates from the West. lhe hegemony of thc film industry or more specilically ljolywood attests to the dominance of Western ideology in the world, as tilm conglomerates such as ti,<ney, Poramauna Pictures ond lJniversal Studios spread lhe American way ol living and the Am€ncan Dreotn to cinemas worldwide. likev,,ise, subtly lhtough M]v, Grey's

Employing simllar technological means, other nations have subverted the use of such telecommunication technologie5 to re a5sert and pre5erve their cultures from the onslaught of the West. Using similar channels, globalization has unwittingly enabled for example, national cinemas slch as Bollywood to develop as a Blobal industry and eventually allowing it to receive acclamation and recognition worldwide as it does in this present day Nonetheless, the preservation of lndian culture through Bollywood cinema remains a largely hybridized form as the transmission of lndian culture is largely enabled through the translation of the Hindi language into English subtitles Jor all to gain access into that particular culture's traditions and forms. The access, ;n other words is limited. Neverihele5s, this i5 but one example out if many of intercultural exchange - a field of study that is gainrng significance in the realm of academia.

The environment impacts the pace, direction and quality of globalization. This happens because environmental resources provide the fuel for economrc globalization. The environmenl and globalization are so intrinsically linked, they are so deeply welded together that we simply cannot address the global environmental challenges facing us unless we are able to Lrnderstand and harness the dynamics of Blobalization that influence them. By the same token, those who wish to capitalize on the potential of globalizaiion will not be able to do so unless they are able to irnderstand and address the great environmental challenges of our time, which are part of tbe context within which globalization takes place. The newly prosperous as well as those who have been alfluent for much longer will now have to come to terms with the limitations ot lhe ecological space in which both must operate and also v,/ith the needs and rights of those who have not been as lucky.
Fbr example, higher demand, growing prices and dwlndling stocks are already propelling new races for contro over key reso0rces The race is now on not just for oil, but for metas, minerals, timber and even for recyclablc waste. For many developing countries endowed wlth critical resources in high demand, this provides an opport'unity to harne5s the power of globalization and pull themselves out of poverty. At the same time, poplllations dependent on the extraction or exploitation of nitural rescrurces, or on natLrral systems and e.osystem services, could lose their llvelihoods as local sources are depleted ({isheries, forests etc.i or degraded (soil lnferriliry) Environmental degradation could also impacl global productivity through damaBe5 io hcalth Derreased environmental stability will create more hostile conditions for econornic 8ro\,!th and also"place new pressures on international cooperation.

Globalization has drastically transformed the nature of the international system and made the world an increasing economically, politically and socially inierconnected place. Civic lnteractions are no longer restricted to the community ievel and are occurring globally with a degree and intensity never seen before in history. lndividuals from every remote corner of the globe can now quickly reach around the world and access others who have vital inlormation or know-how. All told, globalization has made it clear that intra community ties are but one of many forms of civic en8a8ement that must be simultaneously nurlLrred in order to ensure proper economic and politjcal development. The roles and efforts of lGOs {lntcr tovernmental organizations) and NGOs (Non'governmental ortaniuations) have therefore become increasingly important.

However, this has brought about the advenl of loosely organized groups lvhich swear allegiance to Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, though not formally linked to the group or even aware of the existence of other similarly autonomous terrorist groups. The July 7 2005 London Bombings were carried out by British born Muslims of Pakistani origin that were not believed to be connected or formally operating under the leadership of Al Qaeda. As terrorism becomes borderless, nations must adapt their responses to terrorism accordingly. As such, intelllgence and law enforcement agencies must work hand in hand with one anolher. To illustrate, one possible scenario of a terrorist attack is an attack by a ship on a petroleum or petrochemical processing area near the sea. lhe scenario has the bomb'laden ship hittinB the petroleum processing area, creating a catastrophic explosion which could release many harmful substances into the atmosphere, endangering the local population and perhaps even the population of neighbouring countries. When preparing for such a scenario it is necessary to involve many different elements from the local security establishment. These could include the port authority, the maritime aulhority, coast guard and other elite police units as well as military experts on bomb disposal and the removal of hazardous materials and pollution.

order to counter the ease with which terrorists may be able to move across borders, local and foreign intelligence and security elements must work in tandem, sharing information and offering cooperation. For example, several intelliBence services rnay need to share in{ormation in order to piece iogether ihe identity and lo€ation of a parti(ular terrorist. Th€y may also need to work in tandem \,",,;th local police, immlgrrtion and customs officials. When lndonesian lemaah l5lamiyah (closely linked to Al Qaeda) leader Hamball was arrested in August 2003 in Ayutlayn, Thailand,,the intelligence servires of Tharland and the US had worked .loselyto ocate and capturc him. l-le was exlradited to the US as he was deemed a mor:e valuable asset to US anti terrorism investigations.

So far in SellinQ GJabai;.:,?tr'or I ha\/r arqued that globalization ir) practjce !s very- rnuch Liiff.:rena irorn globaliz3tion in tbeory and especially ihe visions of globaiizatio.r that drive political choices today_ Actual global firms are relatively rare and the process of globaljzation is far less developed i:han mGSt people imagine. By sonie rneasLr!e5, ihe world is less thoroLrghly intellrated today ihan it was in the period before World War I lhal. K"vnc:; has t{ieailzed.
When I examined case studies of four "global,, iarms*Nike, Boeing, Microsoft, and Frank Russeil only Nike seemed to fit the definition of a footloose truly global busjness, floating effor essly in a virtual market world, draw'ng on global resources for its production and globai markets lor its sales. When peopte think of globatization, for

good or for bad, the.7 ttrink about a world of Nike, i./hich is an unequal, envicus, peformance oriented, cap'talist worldThe other "global" businesses I stlrdied !.rere as unljke Nike as you can get. Soeing is a creature of the siale and in the process of negotiating erith states has become cne, ilr nearly .-so. Micrcsoft is rnarket driven, but lt teeds stiong staies tc enaci ai!.j eriorcc intellectual properiy r:ghts lar,!s; it cannol e){ist as a fiiofiiable enteiprise without strong states to enforce its copyrjghts. Illicrosoit's pr{laiuct lines illustrate :he durabilib/ of local langu"ge, clilture, and hisio.y (distinct n.ttional dlfferelrces) by the er{tent tc r,^,,nich they are taiiored or custornized to fii local markets. The Frarnk Russell Company, \ihich looks frorn the outside like the quintessential vidual financiai fjrm, turns out on the inside to ile based on t!-ust that is built ihrough face-to-iace personal relaiions, fbr which no electronic periect substitute exists.

Glotlajization exists as a prccess, but ii ;s less ccrnplete tha| many peoFle think ani oi a Cllfereni: nai[r-- than comrnonly assumed.

Arn.Jnq the rnany fo|ces lhei llmit the extent io which true Eiobaiization can hapfien is tlre il]ndantcntai instability of global financiel merkets. If globali?raiifin is io happefl, I argue, !t musi draw cn ea.l perhaps be bi" global financial inat kets, 'rhich picvide iihe econornic means by whiclr !-esources move around the globe. But these markets are an unstible icundation ior globalization" Global financial markets are sutliect te baih ltlg instabilities caused try currency cTises and to smaller but iuildamentally more t!-oublesome chaotic movements. Globalization can only proceed so far if exchange rates are as fundamentally unstab,ie as I think they are. There is reason to believe that as global financial markets expand they become increesingly unstable. At some Doint, the instability is great enough to lialt lhe lorces of econo ic integraiion anC perhaps io reverse them. If my aral'/sis is correct, globalization is a self-lirniting process. The !.Jorld economy may nevei be much fitore "9iobal" iB a reai sense than it is today or was in Keynes's day.
globalization is not new, not ubiquitous, and not unstoppable, then why does it get so much attention? I have provided two answers to this question. First, globalizalion gels attention because it is a useful concept. Politicians, policymakers, and intellectuals link their pet


globalization and then seli globalization to us. Because qlobalization is such a large and vague idea, all softs oi policies and projecis can be easily attached to it. Ancj it is easy to sell this vague ialea to the public durinq a period when lhere are ,nany reasols for anxiety a|d concern. Globaliznt;on js srictr a useiul concept that if !t did ot exist, it !,roLl!d haye to be inveniedagain, not to describe the yr'ay lhe worlC works. but as ar deiivery device for all sorts of good and bad ideas thai are packaged wiih it.
The second reason thai gloiializaticn h,:s been so effectively rn"rkeie{j :s that attempts to provid€ a scund economic critique of thjs concept have thus far been inelfective. In some cases the economic anaiysis


to the promise or threat of

economists say for the most pa!-t, so a meaningful econontic critiqu",j of glcllaijzatiofi by a c€rtiiied economist might as well be ,rriti€n ill Maitian on the back side ci the inaon for all ihe gcod it lvill rjo. t,tore to the point, hoy/ever, is ih€ notjon (lvhich I advanced in |te iasl af:epteij that postwar eccnomics has ,ln jateniiona!iy delined iiself in a r.ei-y narrow way that eflectlveiy el(clitd*s ihe sort oi anal.rlris that le;ds to theoi-eticai questjons about globaj markel fbrce:i.

The process that we call globalizaiion is re"lly a complex set of changes. It is driven by a number of foices that interact i",,ith one another in endlessl)/ fascinaiing 'r!ays. Such a process is calicd :.:onplei in th€ language ol noniine;r dyflamics, dnd whet ,r,,a iii-e seeing now is an example of complexity. There is no generally accepted definition of complexity, according to M. Mitchell Waldrop, whose bestselling book by that name helped to popularize the concept. I The subtille of his book, however-fhe Energing Science at the Edqe of Order and Chaos-suggests a definitjon. If thjs is a deiinition cf cornpiexitv, then globalization certainly seems to fii.

The key to misunderstandinq globalization is io ignore its complexity. li you adificially extraci facts about globalization in a simple way (to paraptrrase Schunrpeter's epigraph to this chapter), then you will understand it as a simple process (e.9., demonic global market, i.apotent siater borderiess world) and succeed in rnisconstruing what is go'ng ofi. Worse, your rnisunderstandinq wili serve ro confirm yolir highest hopes and worst fears.

The problem lvith complex sociai proce:rses is ihat it is difficult to undersiand thern jn their complexity. 5() )"ve simpliiy. This process is nriiliciai, however/ as Schur.npeter says, and erbitrary. We must pick and choose the facts that we emphasize and ihose that we ignore- lt is possjbie to see anything yoLr -r^Jani to see, ii the process is complex enoirgh.

The way that historians, economisls, and the informed public viewed the industrial revolution changed r,l.amal.ically during the one hundred years after Toynbee's Lect!,ires ati t.h,4 litdusi.ria! Aeyolutlon. V/ithoLlt rnuch charige in the "facts" availairle, each gcneration was able lo see in the industrial revoiution a different image. 5_ In each case ii was an image of startling clarity and relevance to the contemporary situation. In each case it was the,mage that viewers wanted to see. Cannadine found four "phases" between 1BB0 and 1980.

]n the 1920s, for exampie, historians saw the industrial revolution in terms oi the social conditions of urbiJn workers and the unemployed. The "facts" chosen \,\,er€ those ihat best reflected the then current concern over social condition and poverty in England.

we call globalization is the complex process that results from breaking down the walls that separate and distinguish many of the inrFoltal-}t instilutions thai we use ic define the lvorld we live in. In our ;ri.ternpt to understand a cornplex \r./orld, uJe necessarily try io conaeot,.ralize it in simple ways. We put vai-icus elemenis of sociell/

into pigeonholes or mental compartments, During periods of econolltic and social stability, this simplified framework is useful. During periods of rapid change, however, the old mental framework prevents us from understanding the nature of the change itself. The walls of the pigeonholes must be broken down and rebuilt to reflect the new realily.

The tact that the borders that define dte qeoqraphical tloundaries of nation-states are nour less important than they were 30 years ago rs only the most obvious aspect oi this gene[al process of crumbling walls.

In fact. I think this three-ievel approach is siiii us€iul in considering rnafiy prolllerns.

In the negotiations that we studied. the nation-states were most often concerned with profits and lobs while the enterprises r,vere most often concerned with security and autonomy-a role reversal. Both were caught in a competitive environment that brought their

interests togeth€r in new combinetions. The difference betuieen the first tr,n/o ievels of analysis is thus no lonller distinct, and their intercctions are complex,

Strafige perceives ihai the dylramic li'lai we call globallzalion ;s conditioned by the diffusion of authority within sociely, nol just befween nation-states, which creates different patterns of influence
and behavior. Using the terms of international relations, we might say that there are more actors in the international political economy today and more levels of analysis aTe necessary. Strange makes the point by

arguinq that traditional inlernational potilical economy is based on the "Gilpin equation":

:-:tilies + M:lrkets = Political Ecenonty

This equation suggests a staie-l€rvel analysis focusing on a small set cf nctofs. Ii is consistent with an internaiionai relations-based approach t{} inte!-national political economy.

The third dimension is reiational and is a mixture of the fii-st two. Rosenau,s analytical franlework is not as easy to state briefly or to understand quickly as

are UJaliz's three levels, but a deep understanding of this theory is noi necessary here. It is what Rosenau says about his framework and what he does with it that I find interesting.

Rosenau's work, apart from his rgl.ltively forrnal attempt to appiy chaos theory to politics, leads to an inte!-esting obsemation that brings us back to ihe qlobalization issue. \!hen the three dimensions of

political change are mixed, the r€s lt is a bifurcatian, which is a common occurrence in naturaliy ciii,.oiic sysierirs.

We should press beyond e'Jen Rosenau's analysis, to cons:der the economic ani social as well as the political irnplications of crumbling walls, rnixed levels, diffused auiho|ity, scralnbled dimensions, and nelv con]b!nations of the institulionai €lemenis that we use to define our world- This is my notion of the complex global dynamic that is reshaping society today.

insiitutions worldwide and have been instrumenial in promoting feminisin, environmentalism, and humafl rigbis as global issues.

Underlying these various visions of globalization is a reluctance to define exactly what is meant by the term culture. During most of the 20th century, anthropologists defined culture as a shared set of beliefs, customs, and ideas that held people logether in recognizable, self-identified groups. Scholars in many disciplines challenged this

noiion of culiura' coherence, especially as il became evident that nernbers of close-knit groups held radically diffcrent visions of th€i. social !!orlds. Culi:ure is no longer perceived as a knoy/ledge system inheriterj lrorn ancesiors. As a result, meny social scientists now treat cultirre a:i a sei c'i,deas, ati.ribules, and €l<peciaiions tilet change as pelrple :=e;lrl '.o cirnnging circumstances. lrlclcfrj, by the tLtrn of the :isl .e'riur), il)€ collapse oi ba iers enforceal ily Soviet cornmunism arid ihE lisa oa elect!-o ic controerce ha'-,€ ilcteased the Derceived

Ti'le breakdor,/ oi li,ne and space is besi illustrated by the infiuential "global village" thesis posed by communications scholar Marshall Mcluhan ;n Gutenberg Galaxy 0.962). Instantaneous communicatjon, predicted Mcluhan, would soon destroy geographically based power imbalances and create a global village, Later, geographer Davjd Harvey argued that the postmodern condition is characterized by a

"tirne-space compression" that arises from inexpensj'/e air trayei and the ever-present use ofielephones, fax, and, more recently, e-mail.

The standardization of experience
Travel Since the nlid-1960s, the cost of international flights has decllned, and foreign tra'/el has become a routine experience for miilions ol mid.lle-

and working-class people. Diplomats, businesspeople, and ordinary tourists can feel "at home" in any city, anywhere in the world. Foreign travel no longer involves the challenge of adapting to unfamiliar food and living arrangements. CNN has been an essential feature of the standardized hotel experience since at least the 199Os. More
significantly, Western-style beds, toilets, showers, iitness centres, and

the Westernized hotel experience, featLlring 13panese-style food and accomnrodaticns, can also be found in most major cities. These developments are llnked to the technology of climate control. ln factr th€j ver'{ idea of roLrllne glolral travel vras incon{tei./able pricr to the universalizn'ricn oi air-condilioning_ An expefrl:n.:e of illis natLire vJould have be-on nearly impcssible in the 1960s, whefl the li/eatherr arolra,

Entertainntent fhe poy/er of m€dia conglofi]erates and the ulliquiiy of entertainment programrrling has globalized television's impad and made it a logical target for accusaiions cf cultui-a' imperialism.

Both series featured slender r-oung actresses who, it was claimed, led Fijian women (who are typjcally fuller-figured) to question indigenous noiions of the ideal body. Anti-globalisrn acl,ivists conlend that American televisicn shows have corrosive effects on local cuitures by bighlightine \r'Jestern otions of beau'.y, indjvid alism, and sexuality.

It nright be Cifficult to inlagine Korean cuisine without !ed pepper pasie or Szechuan food withoui its fiery hot saucer but both are relatively recent innovations-probably from the 17th ceniury. Other New World crops, such as corn (maize), cassava, syJeel potatoes. aod p,^anuts (grounajnuis), were iesponsiille for agricultural ievolutiofis in Asja and Africd, opening up terrain that had previou:li./ been unpro{lu.iive.
One century after the sweet potato was introduced jnto south China (in the m'd 1600s), it had become a dominant crop and was largely responsible for a population explosion that created what today is called Cantonese culture. It is the slveet potato, not the more celebrated white rice, which sustained generations of southern Chinese farmers.

These are the experiences lhat cause cultural meaning to be attached tc Aarlic lar fcods. Today the descendants of Canionese, !-iokkien, and

Hakka pioneers disdain the sweet potato as a "poveitl/ iood" that conjures iffiages af past hardships. In Tai!!?n, iry ccirt!-ast, independe.rc€ aclivis[s (aifiuent members of the r-jsin!] Tai!,ranese middie class) have embraced the svreet p,-riato ns an eiriblem of
