Economics UFP Course Work 2:
To what extent have the benefits of globalisation outweighed the costs? Will more or less globalisation be a good idea for a country’s future? Make reference to a country of your choice. (20 marks)

 

Please note: Students should be rewarded for their depth of understanding rather than the quantity of points they make. Students should consider both the positive and negative effects of globalisation. Accept one side for analysis/application and the other side for evaluation.

 

Answers might include:

  1. Definitions of globalisation, for example… ; background of globalisation in the country of choice.

Globalisation
Economic globalisation can be defined as an increasing flow of goods and services, capital and labour between growing numbers of countries. It is the ever increasing integration of the world’s local, regional, and national economies into a single international market.

 

Students may bring in Trade Blocs as examples but should not be penalised if they don’t. 
 

  1. Advantages and Disadvantages of globalisation

When discussing the advantages and disadvantages of globalisation, students should use the data on their chosen country they have found in their research; and apply this appropriately.

 

Advantages of globalisation, for example…

  • Increased economic growth
  • An increase in FDI- this brings infrastructure, capital investment and jobs to countries. Economies may develop faster as a result.
  • Improved efficiency in production (e.g. economies of scale) and this may allow more rapid economic growth
  • Increasing living standards resulting from increased specialisation and trade
  • Greater consumer choice
  • Lower prices, through specialisation according to comparative advantage
  • Larger markets to sell in due to increased trade
     

Disadvantages of globalisation, for example…

  • Increased interdependence of economies
  • Increase in the number of ‘footloose’ companies which can cause unemployment as they move from country to country
  • Increased unemployment as some industries are removed / taken off-shore
  • Workers may be exploited by large global (transnational) companies
  • Increasing environmental destruction and other negative externalities
  • Increased inequalities between the rich and poor


Note: this is not an exhaustive list. Accept other advantages and disadvantages as appropriate.

 

  1. Conclusion

Based on the students’ discussion of the above, they should make recommendations as to whether more or less globalisation is a good idea for this country. Greater marks should be given to students who can come to logical, supported conclusions.
