How is Globalization Changing the Way We Live?

Globalization, the name given to the ever-increasing integration of the people, business interests, and governments of countries across the globe, is a contentious issue with an influence on our changing culture.

On the other side of the debate, critics argue that the homogenization of cultures is steamrolling indigenous cultures around the world, denying people their economic, social and cultural rights, and exploiting less developed countries to further the interests of the few frontrunners.
