572 words - 3 pages

The world is changing like never before. Globalization is affecting every aspect of our
lives. It affects our culture, our economy, and even our politics. We face new challenges

interregional level . . . [it is] deeper today.”
Economic integration has many consequences: some relating to culture and
society, some relating to security. If you’re economic interests are shared, you must share
the work in defending them against people who would do you wrong. In many respects
the terrorist attack on the United States on September 11, 2001, proved to be a

The attacks
led to the Global War on Terror and the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq. The result is
that almost every country in the world has new burdens and responsibilities, as well as
new benefits because of the intertwining that comes with globalization.
