Globalization is defined as the deficiency of the walls of matchboxes which were characteristics of every country due to mutual distrust, suspicion and objectives.

Due to its numerous advantages, globalization has made it easier for people to access money and information quickly than ever before. As compared to previous years, globalization has enabled people to be more connected with others, has increased the worldwide availability of goods and services and increased the number of international travels (Collins, 2010). Actually, proponents of globalization argue that the world is likely to become a better place because of the potential of globalization. Some of the advantages of globalization include creation of open and tolerant social networks, easy and quicker access of information and money and creation of a global free trade through promotion of a universal economic growth among others.
On the contrary, globalization has also come with several disadvantages such as exploitation of labor, invasion of infectious diseases, lots of powers to major corporations in the world, social degeneration and increasing the gap between the rich and the poor among others. In conclusion, globalization can be considered one of the ways to make this world a better place because of its gradual transformation of political systems. If the disadvantages of globalization are addressed and dealt with through other means, the world will become much better.
