Years ago it was a real big thing to go to country that are over sea. Or when you bought something online it toke months to get to you. Nowadays everybody wants to travel and wants to see the world, go study abroad etc. It is because the world is getting smaller and the opportunities are growing. It is getting way more easy to do stuff miles abroad. But also communication and trading is easily done. The way of trading with the world changed and improved a lot since the last 15 years. This is called: Globalization. The world is getting ‘smaller’ and the ways en opportunities are getting bigger.


I found out that the export of Holland between 2002 en 2014 has increased with 86 percent, that is 432,5 milliard euro’s. In the same period there was e rise in export of imported goods van 42 to 46 percent (Bletz, 2015). In those last years the world developed a new sort of law called: ‘ World trade organization’. This makes it cohesive.


Not everything about this trend is good for everybody. It also effects third world country’s. (international, 2014) because of the rise of multinationals there is more need for inexpensive employees. Which means there are a lot of children that work with bad working conditions in big factory’s so the multinationals can make as much money as possible from all over the world. Because of that there is a smaller trend that makes us by Fairtrade stuff or by all means: Stuff that hasn’t been made with children’s hands.


All these thing have been going on 10 till maybe 15 years already. There are now facts that tell is it is already at his end. This tells use that it is a megatrend. It still is going and it indirectly has effect on everybody. What do you think of globalization, is it good for the world?
