Some people think the increasing business and cultural contact between countries brings many positive effects. Others say it causes the loss of national identities. Discuss both of these views and give your own opinion.
There is an increasing concern about the effects of globalization. Some believe that globalization surely benefits most countries in different aspects such as economics, education and politics; others, however, argue that it has negative consequences on national identities. In my view, globalization not only boosts economic development but generally has positive effects on national identities. First, it is obvious that business contacts around the world contribute a lot to effective development. Entrepreneurs and business owners, from foreign countries, invest a substantial amount of money as well as technology into infrastructure and create many job opportunities for local residents, which consequently improve people's living standards. That is the reason why many countries make laws and policies to encourage international business and investment. Moreover, with multicultural communication, national identities are more expressed to the outside world and get respected and appreciated by people from different cultures and social background. For example, water puppet has been introduced and been known in many countries recently. Therefore, Vietnamese identity has been enhanced and has impressed many people through this kind of performance which uniquely belongs to Vietnam. Those who harbor the view that international collaboration between countries may threaten national identities may argue that youngsters start following western country trends without understanding their pros and cons. Millennials nowadays eat hamburgers, drink coffee, work in skyscrapers and even speak English often, fueling a lifestyle similar to that in New York. But I think that this just mirrors modern lifestyle and does not mean that we are losing our cultural heritage. To protect our national identities does mean that every Vietnamese people should drink tea every day and use chopsticks at every meal. In sum, globalization do play an important role in a country's development. Meanwhile, a more prosperous economy facilitates the preservation and recognition of national cultures and identities worldwide.
Submitted by The expense of living is higher in developed nations and it affects directly to citizens and society. In this essay, I will express this issue and some resolves. People living in the US or any European country would face daily expensive cost and it affects directly to every citizen and society. Firstly, It forces adult individuals to work in most of the time and takes away enjoyable moments in their lives. For instance, a direct salesman in car dealers usually conducts their tasks from 6 am to 8 pm to maximum volume of sales and meet daily costs. Secondly, this fact creates a bunch of homeless people, who come from both white-collar and blue-collar workers. In Silicon Valley, teachers, bankers or staffs of governments live in track, which is normal images that local people see every day. The best way is that governments and corporation must act together. In the US, authorities in some province encourage real estate companies to build more houses and apartments, they act to remove and shrink terms, conditions in certain sectors. Some also decrease business tax massively to attract large conglomerate. It results in thousands of apartments, house, which appear at the edge of cities or state. Let’s take Google corporation is an example, they proactively associated with state government and sponsor to provide low-cost houses in Silicon Valley for their employees and valley citizens. High cost in developed countries and other issues always happens in different contexts, hence individuals, corporation, and authorities must act and take their responsibility in life and our society. on
