Globalisation - Definition IMF defines Globalisation as “ the growing economic interdependence of countries worldwide through increasing volume and variety of cross border transactions in goods and services and of international capital flows, and also through the more rapid and widespread diffusion of technology.”
Globalization of World Economy Globalization is the process of development of the world into a single integrated economic unit.

Stages of Globalization - Kenichi Ohmae Stage one – Export-Orientated Company A company which expands from its home production base to export markets using dealers, distributors or agents. Stage two – Overseas Branches The company starts to set up its own sales, marketing and, perhaps, after-sales services in foreign markets. Stage three – Relocating Production The company relocates production to key markets Stage four – Insiderisation The company creates complete ‘clone models’ of the parent in overseas markets, enabling a complete local response to local consumers by being able both to analyse consumers and tailor local products to their needs. Stage five – The Global Company Ohmae says that at this stage some common core functions ‘consolidate back to the centre’ to provide the business with ‘common shard values’ – the global aspect – whilst maintaining the ability to provide a specific local service. Operation remains ‘dedicated to local management’, but there is global control of areas such as R&D, brand development and so on.
Exporting is the process of selling of goods and services produced in one country to other countries. Exporting Licensing essentially permits a company in the target country to use the property of the licensor. Such property usually is intangible, such as trademarks, patents, and production techniques. The licensee pays a fee in exchange for the rights to use the intangible property and possibly for technical assistance. Franchising While licensing arrangements are common for manufacturing industries, franchising is common for service industries. The company sells the franchise and limited use of its name for a lump sum and share of profits. Franchisees usually have to abide by strict rules. The advantages are the same as form licensing, i.e. low cost and risk Joint Venture with companies in the host country are a long favoured mode of entry into new markets. The advantages are that the company can benefit from the partner's local knowledge of business and political systems, culture and language. The costs and risks are shared. And it may be the only politically feasible mode of entry (Bradley, 1977). This is an especially common reason now why companies entering the Chinese market usually use the joint venture mode.

Free flow of technology helps developing countries to implement new technology It offers producers a larger market since domestic firms in case of surplus can export Improved standard of living – reduction in poverty and increase in prosperity Rapid industrialization and greater specialization help firms to gain competitive advantage. Increases production and consumption Increases employment and income Cultural exchange and demand for variety of products Advantages
Disadvantages Increased environmental damage increased poverty, inequality. erosion of traditional culture Threat to domestic industry Corporations are motivated by profit and have little concern for people economic globalization developments feed into ethnic, religious, and factional tensions that lead to wars and help breed terrorism Terrorists now globally interconnected and empowered with knowledge, create a whole new category of warfare based, in part, on the disruption of the interconnections which are both created by and necessary for globalization Unemployment and underemployment of low skilled workers
