Stories - Globalization ala Nike — International Reporting Project

As Nike's top salesman, so to speak, Woods earns $20 million a year for promoting the company's products simply by playing golf. The Indonesians who actually make those shoes and sports clothes earn an average of $786 a year. An extreme example, perhaps, but that is what globalization is all about. Nike is one of many American companies that have taken advantage of the world's economic inequities to make a profit. Contrary to popular belief, Nike does not manufacture its own products. You may be interested to know that those sneakers cost about $16.75 on the factory floor. Americans don't want to make Nikes. Worldwide, Nike has contracts with 700 factories that employ 550,000 workers in 50 countries. These plants employ 110,000 Indonesians whose take-home pay averages $65 a month.

Superbrands, Globalization, and Neoliberalism: Exploring Causes and Consequences of the "Nike" Superbrand

This paper explores superbrands and their impact in three ways. First, the dynamics of the superbrand Nike, along with the implications of Nike as a superbrand, are explored. Second, globalization is discussed as a phenomenon affecting the global balance of power. Finally, the paper explores the effects of neoliberal policy on the growth and dominance of superbrands. In particular, the discussion on globalization and neoliberalism illuminate the various ways in which these phenomena facilitate and support the rise of superbrands and their multinational corporations (MNCs).

Superbrands such as Nike have been described as one of the central mediums of globalization and as symbols of a global economy. The result for Nike was innovative ad campaigns, superstars like Michael Jordan, superstores like Nike Town, and corporate campuses such as the Nike World campus. 38 maps that explain the global economy.

En effet, le premier dictionnaire à en donner une définition est le Webster [1] Noah Webster publie son premier dictionnaire anglais... [1] en 1961 (Merriam-Webster, 1961). Cependant, le terme globalisation n’a émergé dans le monde universitaire anglo-saxon qu’à la fin des années quatre-vingt et n’est devenu véritablement à la mode qu’au début des années quatre-vingt-dix, suscitant quantité de livres et d’articles scientifiques mais aussi de productions grand public.
