Chapter One Notes Globalization: more connected and more interdependent than ever before Goods and services and information are exchanged in our local stores to every place on earth Can travel anywhere we want whenever we want. The world is now mostly one system. First generation to enjoy foreign travel as a casual part of life; postindustrial, highly interconnected age. Aids rate in Africa, coal consumption in China, earthquake in Japan, cocaine price in Columbia does affect you. Globalization is pretty much a one way street. Humans are the biggest modifiers, movers, shakers, benders and breakers of the planet Globalization is not new, has been going on for thousands of years Used to migrate in order to take advantage of new unpopulated lands, untapped resources or follow game. Today they migrate for jobs, security, and better life in a richer place Human civilization developing tools, growing food and congregating together in bigger pools of people.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
