Hyper-globalists also known as global optimists believe thatglobalization are replacing local cultures with the expansion of internationalcapitalism and the emergence of a homogeneous global culture; they claim thatglobalization created borderless world with positive economic growth,increasing prosperity and promote democracy footprint.
Borderless world is a conceptof globalization where the goods, services, technology, information,capital flow through the borders from one nation to other. A “borderless world”refers to an open world which can bring influences upon people. Harlambos(2013) describes Kenichi Ohmae as one who sees economic change as the drivingforce of globalisation. It may bring about changes in their culture, beliefs,traditions and others. (Patricia Evangelista).From personalpoint of view, I agreed with the world is borderless. Firstly, the reason beingis because more and more country were increasing wealth,health and education from international trade the growth of transnationalorganizations which benefited to underdeveloped and developingcountries.
More people around the world are consumers ratherthan living subsistence lifestyles and people increasingly consume similarfoods and have access to enjoy premium products brands equally. These can berealised from electronics products investment of companies suchas Apple, Sony and Samsung as well as automotive industry which readilyavailable provided better quality of life to lesser developed countries. Secondly, rapid technological innovation is alsodriving the formation of a borderless world. New technologies and progress intelecommunication increase global interaction and people are benefited fromsuch features of advancement. With the power of the internet, it making globalization possible ata fast rate.
Internet tools like Google and Yahoo had significantlychanged the world. People are easily stay connected and freedom to keep up withthe news on the other part of the world which effectively removed all thecommunications barriers and thus world is constantly becoming smaller andsmaller as time progresses. Lastly, as for economic context, globalization has broughtin different ideologies and thought process amongst people. The MNCs investedin various countries served the wholeworld market without prevailing national base which also delivered wealth withtax revenue; created significant jobs opportunity for the regions and develop nationsthey entered. Through the increasing volume of trading across borders, it has proven globalization greatlycontribute to the world economic growth which somehow madethis world a better place to live in and solve some of the deep-seated unemploymentand poverty problems thus provide a net benefit to individual economies around the world.
