Globalisation
1 What is it?
1.1 Globalisation means the greater integration of the global economy.
1.1.1 The World is connected by air travel, shipping routes and the internet
1.1.2 Jobs and wealth in one country are increasingly dependent on trade and investment from other countries
1.1.3 Amount of trade in goods, services and money is increasing
1.1.4 Countries Specialise in certain types of economic activity
2 Global institutions and globalistion
2.1 What has caused this? Three global institutions have helped create a more globalised world economy
2.1.1 Transnational Corporations (TNCs) - Aim to reduce costs and increase profits by moving factories to cheaper locations. This creates new jobs in developing countries
2.1.1.1 Most important as they are such huge global companies that they can influence whole economies. E.G. McDonalds has 34,000 restaurants in 119 countries which employ 1.8 million people
2.1.2 International Monetary Fund (IMF): Gives loans to developing countries for infrastructure and encourages countries to allow foreign investment to create new jobs
2.1.3 World Trade Organisation (WTO): Promotes free trade by persuading countries to reduce or remove trade barriers e.g. Taxes
2.2 In the developed world secondary jobs have been lost, but industrialising countries in the developing world have gained jobs in the secondary sector
2.3 Some tertiary jobs, like those in call centres, have moved from the UK to places such as India.
2.4 In industrialising countries the number of people working in primary jobs have fallen, people have moved to cities to work in factories due to better pay.
2.5 Often referred to GLOBAL SHIFT
3 International trade and FDI
3.1 Money flows around the world in several ways; through trade in goods - through stock markets - when money from one country is invested in another (Foreign Direct Investment - FDI)
3.2 Usually a TNC will invest money from one country to another. Could be to open a mine, build a factory etc. 75% of FDI capital originates in developed countries
3.3 The share of world trade has increased for fuels such as oil, coal and gas and raw materials such as chemicals, ores and minerals. Industrial countries need huge quantities of energy and raw materials for their factories
4 Changing employment structure
4.1 In post-industrial economies secondary industry declines and a new sector emerges (the quaternary sector) which includes scientific reattach and biotechnology with computers
4.2 Countries are at different stages of economic development. The Clark-Fisher model shows this
4.3 Post-industrial: Tertiary - Services such as education, real, banking, health service and travel. Examples - UK, Japan
4.4 Industrial: Secondary - Manufacturing goods in factories and workshops. Examples - China, Mexico
4.5 Pre-Industrial: Primary - Fishing, farming, mining and forestry. Examples - Ethiopia, Nepal
5 The impact of globalisation on different groups of people
5.1 Male coal miners in China- Coal has powered China's economic growth providing jobs for 5 million coal miners. Up to 2000 miners die each year working 7-hour shifts underground for £5-£8 a day.
5.2 More countries have become richer, especially in the developed world
5.3 About 300 million people in China have been lifted out of poverty
5.4 Female factory workers in China- Women who work for Foxconn (makes iPads and iPhones for Apple) earn about £180 a month. They live in dormitories within the factory and work up to 60 hours overtime a month, but the pay is much higher than in the rural areas from which most workers migrated.
5.5 However in Africa incomes have not improved much at all
5.6 Male car factory workers in the USA- Ford and General Motors have shut factories in cities of the USA and moved them to Mexico and Brazil. Hundreds of thousands of male, well-paid workers have lost their jobs because of this.
6 The drivers of change
6.1 Jet aircraft have reduced costs of travel
6.2 Communications are cheap- fibre optic cables, satellites and technology
6.3 Container ships have revolutionised trades in goods, making it cheaper and more efficient
6.4 State-led investment: TNC investing in another country is supportive/partly owned by another countries government
6.4.1 China and India have set ip free trade zones
6.4.1.1 TNCs can build factories cheap in these places
6.4.1.1.1 Reduces pollution
6.5 TNCs- large, wealthy, powerful and can transfer investment around the world
6.5.1 Try to maximise profits by reducing costs, and often move production to low cost places
6.5.2 Complex network of factories, offices, HQs, suppliers
7 Contrasting employment sectors
7.1 Primary work in Ethiopia- Hard, labour intensive farm work, vulnerable to the weather, children in the family have to work. No pay or very little.
7.2 Secondary work in China- Long hours, repetitive work, lots of overtime, only want workers under 30 years of age. £1000-£3000 a year.
7.3 Quaternary work in USA - Very good working conditions, high stress job with TNC demand to develop new products. £25,000-£100,000 a year
7.4 As countries develop they move up stages through the Clark-Fisher model, the changes are; An increase in pay/income, better working conditions and a change from informal to formal jobs.
7.5 Tertiary work in the UK- Good working conditions with health and safety regulations, paid holidays and pensions, unsociable working hours and high stress working environment. £20,000-£40,000 a year.
8 Secondary and Tertiary Sector TNCs
8.1 Tertiary
8.1.1 Starbucks
8.1.1.1 Set in seattle, annual revenue of $10.7 billion in 2011, has over 1,000 stores in America, situated all around the world. Paper cups from Europe, Coffee beans from South America, Sugar from Bolivia and shops in Singapore, Malaysia, Beijing, Japan and Korea for example.
8.2 Secondary
8.2.1 Dell
8.2.1.1 Designed in Texas, 90% directly sold to customers, sells 150,000 computers everyday, large work forces, situated all around the world
