What I would highlight Teacher Hoberman, in the light of the Brexit vote and the up and coming 2016 presidential race in the United States of America, needs to, on the off chance that he has not so as of now, upgraded feedback of the present globalization extend. I was an alum of his 2014 online course and adapted MUCH for which I am appreciative. Hoberman requirements to change his course to address the feedback of a globalization venture that is happening now. The present globalization model is a disappointment on incredible scale. The general population of the world are plainly and immovably dismissing it. Scholarly people need to accommodating to the general population of the Earth and propose another model of globalization that is helpful to all and not only a couple select tremendously rich worldwide elements. Much obliged.

What could be improved No negative aspects.

Course programme

Globalization is a fascinating spectacle that can be understood as global systems of competition and connectivity. These man-made systems provide transport, communication, governance, and entertainment on a global scale. International crime networks are outgrowths of the same systems. Topics include national identity, language diversity, the global labor market, popular culture, sports and climate change. However, an increase in integration has not brought increased equality. Globalization creates winners and losers among countries and global corporations, making competition the beating heart of the globalization process. The globalization process exemplifies connectivity. Globalization is unimaginable without the unprecedented electronic networks that project dominant cultural products into every society on earth. Learn how to identify and analyze global systems and better understand how the world works.
