Forces of Localization Globalization engenders conflicts within and between nations over domestic norms and the social institutions that embody them. As the technology for manufactured goods become standardized and diffused globally, nations with very different sets of values, norms, institutions and collective preferences begin to compete head on in markets for similar goods . Many residents of advanced industrial countries are uncomfortable with the weakening of domestic institutions through the forces of trade , as when, for example, standards for the labor, environment, competition policy and corruption developed at home are not met abroad.

    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.
