What is Globalization

This process has effects on the environment, on culture, on political systems, on economic development and prosperity, and on human physical well-being in societies around the world. Globalization is not new, though. For thousands of years, people—and, later, corporations—have been buying from and selling to each other in lands at great distances, such as through the famed Silk Road across Central Asia that connected China and Europe during the Middle Ages.

Likewise, for centuries, people and corporations have invested in enterprises in other countries. In fact, many of the features of the current wave of globalization are similar to those prevailing before the outbreak of the First World War in 1914. Technology has been the other principal driver of globalization. Gentrification definition. High Street: Five ways UK shopping has changed - BBC News.

The average toll equates to at least 40 shops closing per town centre in England and Wales, in a stark illustration of the economic conditions faced by retailers and local communities. 88 major town centres across England and Wales were included in the Guardian’s analysis of Ordnance Survey data. The town centre with the starkest decline is Stoke-on-Trent, which has lost 23% of its 415 stores in just five years.

Pushing the boater out: London's property crisis spreads to the water

Where once, even in the heart of the city, there was usually a grassy bank he could moor next to, there are now just smooth concrete slabs. Residential moorings have been taken over by businesses running bar barges and restaurant boats, and tall glass buildings have sprung up on the waterside, overshadowing the water. “No mooring here,” the signs say. But for Trower, it is the level of abuse he receives in central London that makes him feel most unwelcome.

“It ranges from being called a pikey to having stones thrown at my boat.” The vast majority of London’s “continuous cruisers” – boaters like Trower who live on the city’s canals but move around regularly so they are not obliged to pay for an expensive permanent mooring – get harassed by local residents nowadays, he says.
