International Trade & Globalization

Globalization arguably is the most significant trend to have emerged in the 21st century. The ability for consumers to access goods and services from around the world has permanently altered the economic, political and social landscape. The material in this category is designed to help you understand the multiple ramifications of international trade and globalization. Our summaries offer the most current information on both the short- and long-term effects of globalization and how this evolving phenomenon impacts your daily life. getAbstract explains how computers and sophisticated technological advances spurred the growth of international trade and globalization. The ability to connect worldwide allowed commerce to extend beyond domestic borders. You’ll learn how globalization has dramatically affected manufacturing and distribution and generally has boosted many economies by generating more jobs and reducing the prices of goods. You’ll read how international trade has forged new business alliances and created exciting new possibilities across numerous sectors.

Inevitable Complications

The inter-connectedness facilitated by international trade and globalization also comes with risk. getAbstract shows how economic downturns can cause a ripple effect internationally. The expert advice you’ll find in our summaries, however, can help buyers and traders avoid common pitfalls and maintain economic equilibrium. What’s more, getAbstract tries to identify emerging trends and strategies so your organization is better prepared to take the next step. You’ll learn about the critical importance of innovation in a fiercely competitive environment and the pros and cons of outsourcing. Globalization and international trade are here to stay, making this the perfect time to establish a partnership with getAbstract.
