Example Question #1 : Globalization

Which of the following would not contribute to increasing globalization?

Possible Answers:

Decreased dependence on international resources

Increased international trade

Decreased restrictions on immigration

Increased international investments

Increased international communication

Correct answer:

Decreased dependence on international resources

Explanation:

Globalization refers to the spread of culture, both material and non-material, and the integration of these elements around the world. Increased international trade, investment, communication, and immigration facilitate the spread of ideas and cultural principles from one society to another. In contrast, decreasing the dependence of one nation on another restricts the flow of materials and information, thus decreasing the effect of globalization.
