Globalization has, within a majority of economic, political, business, environmental and other various circles, become one of the most prominent topics of discussion today. Both diverse in nature and vast in scope, the subject of globalization has produced a plethora of competing viewpoints, inconsistent experiences, and fluctuating conclusions. The goal of this thesis is to put globalization in a seemingly defined context so that the reader can view the topic in a more organized and clear manner. A secondary goal is to relate globalization to China in order to provide the reader with an example of the effects of globalization. Though the described implications cannot be used to explain globalization as whole, they will be used to help the reader identify some global concerns. Furthermore, by presenting this vivid analysis, it may be possible for individuals to realize the importance of a global perspective and the value of a global education.
