Globalisation and Social Change

Globalisation and Social Change

Question

“Impact of globalisation is of great social importance but its impact is different upon different sections of the society”. Explain this statement in about 100 words.

Answer

It is obvious that globalisation is of great social significance. But as you saw its impact on difference sections of society is very different. There are, therefore, sharply divided views about the impact of globalisation regarding its effect. Some believe that it is necessary to herald a better world. Others fear that the impact of globalisation on different sections of people is vastly different. They argue that while many in the more privileged section may benefit, the condition of a large section of the already excluded population worsens. There are yet others who argue that globalisation is not a new development at all.
