Countries are becoming more and more similar because people are able to buy the same products anywhere in the world. Is it a positive or negative development?

These days the same
products
are available everywhere and
hence
countries and nations have started resembling one another. In my opinion, there are both negative and positive developments due to the flowing paragraphs. Being able to buy the same
products
prevents discrimination. When everyone uses the same
products
or wears the same clothes, they are less likely to be separated.
This
is helpful when people travel abroad.
This
practice
also
saves time and money. If you have money, you can buy whatever you want from any part of the world.
For example
, to buy the famed Switch watches you no longer have to travel to Switzerland. You can now buy it online and get it delivered to your house. In
this
case, it is beneficial for customers all over the world and it has
also
reduced the gap in living standards in different countries.
On the other hand
, others believe that there are
also
some negative effects of having the same
products
. When people everywhere get the same things, it is bad for local economies and the environment. It is possible to say that the
products
are imported from foreign countries and have to travel thousands of miles before they reach customers.
This
does not help the environment or local craftsmen.
Moreover
, small businesses and manufacturers cannot compete with them and quickly lose their market share and there is less demand for skilled workers who can produce goods with local features.
Consequently
, people who are employed in traditional sectors are becoming jobless and the local companies no longer exist. In conclusion, being able to buy the same
products
everywhere has both positive and negative development as it saves time and money but
also
increases the unemployment rate and reduces local businesses.

Support ideas with relevant, specific examples

Examples make your writing easier to understand by illustrating points more effectively.

Examples, if used properly, not only help you get higher marks for ‘Task Response’ but also for ‘Coherence’.

When giving examples it is best to put them after your main idea or topic sentence. They can be used in the middle of supporting sentences or they can be used to start a new sentence. There is no rule for where exactly to give examples in essays, logically they would come after your main idea/topic sentence or just after a supporting sentence.

Linking words for giving examples:

  • for example
  • for instance
  • to illustrate this
  • to give a clear example
  • such as
  • namely
  • to illustrate
  • take, for example
