Description:

This paper examines Chapter 8, entitled "The Merging and Clashing of Cultures" in J. Johnson's work, "Global Issues, Local Arguments", that discusses the phenomenon of globalization. The paper reviews Johnson's argument that the developed world has been frequently and correctly accused of exploiting the resources and interests of smaller and less powerful nations, and this has resulted in the continued economic and resource dominance of the developed sphere and the imposition of the cultural values and perspectives derived from these developed countries. The paper highlights the premise of Johnson's discussion, which is that the economic priorities of the global community seem almost inherently designed to cause a clash of cultures.

From the Paper:

"The text by Johnson offers a compelling and nuanced discussion on the phenomenon of globalization. Indeed, the content largely focuses on the challenges and opportunities which have been created by the simultaneous deconstruction of nation-state boundaries, the proliferation of the global market place and the expansion of technological capabilities. All of these, the Johnson text demonstrates, have opened the door to high levels of commercial, social and political interaction between nations both in the developed and developing spheres. However, Johnson acknowledges, the results of this process have not been inherently positive. As is demonstrated in Chapter 8, entitled The Merging and Clashing of Cultures, it is sometimes the case that the interests of the developing and developed worlds are at odds with on another. As this underscores the relationship forged between such interests, Johnson reports that the developed world has been frequently and correctly accused of exploiting the resources and interests of smaller and less powerful nations. The result, this chapter specifically dictates, is not just the continued economic and resource dominance of the developed sphere but, further, the imposition of the cultural values and perspectives derived from these developed context. Today, this is producing a highly contentious and frequently violent impasse between divergent ways of life."
