This was a very interesting article. Globalization affects education and jobs. There are many opportunities and countries that will soon advance pass the U.S. in some major areas. I agree that exposure to different cultures is very important to growth, not only for advancement in the job industry, but people need to learn more about diversity and embracing the change.

As a nursing instructor, I have a tough time helping my students understand how to take care of the culturally diverse. We do have to introduce our college students to foreign countries and peoples. I teach a Transcultural Health course that has several projects. One is to pick a diverse cultural group and introduce that group to the class by discussing the heritage, topography, dominant language, common foods, food rituals, religion, spirituality, and family roles, etc. The students' eyes are opened up to masses of new information. Do I feel that I need to send my students overseas to learn these characteristics of a cultural group, no. I do think it is important to expose these students to the different countries and peoples they may be exposed to and have to take care of.

This is a great blog and this posting is highly relevant in today's world. The fact that so many manufacturing companies are moving out of the US would imply that jobs at various levels in manufacturing are lost in the US. For example, assembly line jobs are lost and engineering jobs are lost as well. I wonder what impact this trend will have on computer programming jobs and enrollment in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) programs in college.

It is interesting how globalization affects employment all over the world. Many call centers are now developed outside the U.S. because of cheaper labor. Unfortunately, the U.S. workers experience missed and lost job opportunities because of businesses opened abroad. In summary, globalization has its advantages and disadvantages.
