Hey guys, i need your help with a assignment,  i am doing well on it so far but i fink i am now losing the plot! lol

Here is the question:

We all know that one way or another 'globalisation' is a fact of life today. But what does it really mean for our daliy lives, for the culture that we live in, and for the dynamics of the power in the world? One of the ways in which these issues have been discussed by recent commentators is in terms of 'cosmopolitianism'. is cosmopolitiasim an ethical style of life for a postmodern world, or just a comfortable pose for privileged elites? in other words are you cosmopolitian??

Right peeps thats the question, abit indense i know, so i just wanted your thoughts, ideas and assistance on the above question to help me further!!!

I am in Graduate school studying Political Economy so this is what I do pretty much all day long.

Globalization has many meanings in everyday usage. It can denote the rise of modular production networks, borderless capital (internationalization of capital) and thus, the dawn of a new economy / new capitalist era. Some scholars also see globalization as modernity that has intensified to link distant localities and form new social relations. The globalization of communications technology has also made the world a smaller place. Globalization can also signal the coming of a uniform, standardized world society based on technological, commercial, and cultural synchronization by and for the global North.

So, it can mean many things to you, depending on your school of thought.

I think globailzation is a particularly good thing. I'm not sure if i have the correct meaning of globalization so let me know if im wrong. Globilzation would help countries economic condtions. I think the stratagey is to move a large portion of the jobs to underdeveloped countries. This will decrease the unemployment rate and boom the economy of an underdeveloped country. An example of this is move the IT related jobs to india. As a result there are less unemployed ppl and it's apparent that the economy is booming with the increased production in builidings, malls,cars and also the stadium for the common wealth games. Idk if what i wrote was right... just took a shot in the dark. Hope it's helpful lol.
