, since the 20th century, a globalised market has been consolidated impacting all peoples and countries. It has divided opinions on the negative or positive impact on different cultures, but with an overall positive result.
Some might see Globalisation as a negative aspect of the modern world. The availability of merchandise massively produced has negatively impacted local traditions and costumes,

, products made in different countries are sold at cheaper prices, which
inhibits local production.

, Globalisation has allowed people from different or distant regions to experience different cultures without leaving their own country, which might not be an easy thing to do.

In the end, the global market has, not just, allowed culturally different people to interact and exchange experiences more easily, but
to see that they have similar interests.
