Globalization, Economy and Religion

Abstract

Perhaps globalization has been one of the most commonly discussed topics of the last two decades. Globalisation is defined as the process enabling financial and investment markets to operate internationally,  largely as a result of deregulation and improved communications  At the beginning, it has been thought to be a saviour for the people of underdevelopped countries for it would provide access to modern technology and the means of mass communication. It has been thought that through the improvements in transportation, telecommunications and internet the world would become a global village and all cultures would get a chance to express itself. Yet, so far globalization has spread a single culture, secular western culture and now it dominates the whole world with its food, arts, sports, culture, morality, and worldview.

Globalization brought about serious global problems such as racism, oppression, inequality, immigration, debt crisis and ecological destruction etc. This paper discusses the problems caused by globalization from three perspectives ecology, racism and immigration. Also, the paper proposes solutions regarding what can be done to stop the destructive effects of globalization and what role religious institutions can play in this process.
