I think many of the peoples caused lately is because people have not adapted to the changes in the past 60 years to do jet plans and most recently the internet. You are now competing with people from all over the world not just in your own country. An image of what this means An American citizen living in Dubai,owns a company registered in Bulgaria that has a swiss bank account from a swiss company with a branch in Bulgaria. He hires people from India to do SEO work for his website. A programmer from Romania to write a program he sells. He orders promotional products from China and Vietnanm(pens,t shirts etc.) He uses a international law firm from the United Kingdom for legal advice. His company hires a financial planning firm from Germany to help him increase the profits of his company. The next time you hear someone complain of globalization ask them why don't you break your computer since computers and the internet heavily led to it.
