A definition of globalization that I can understand and to which I now can relate:
Princess Diana's death is the best way to understand globalization.
Because as an English princess with an Egyptian boyfriend she crashed in a French tunnel, riding in a German car with a Dutch engine, driven by a Belgian who was drunk on Scottish whisky, followed closely by Italian Paparazzi On Japanese motorcycles, and treated by an American doctor, using Brazilian medicines.
To simplify the definition even more this is sent to you by an Australian, using American Bill Gates' technology, and you're probably reading it on a computer,with uses Taiwanese chips, and a Korean monitor, all assembled by Bangladeshi workers In a Singapore plant, and then transported by Indian truck drivers, to ships at risk of being hijacked by Indonesians, and then unloaded by Sicilian longshoremen and, if you are living in the US, trucked to you by Mexican illegals ....
That, my friends,Is Globalization !
