With engaging and easy-to-understand entries on important concepts written by experts in the field, Principles of Business: Globalization will be an invaluable resource for students and readers seeking a clear introduction to topics in globalization.
The word globalization is bandied about in the news media and elsewhere, often without precise definition. We can define globalization, though, as the growing interdependence not only of the world’s economies but also of populations and cultures. This interdependence is created by cross-border trade, the transfer of technological processes, and flow of investment capital, information, skills, resources, and labor. It can more narrowly refer to the economic partnerships that nations have forged to facilitate the international flow of goods and services.
This work focuses on such important topics in globalization as “Business Cycle,” “Fair Trade,” “Applied Global Money Management,” and “Survival Models.” All entries are arranged in an A to Z order, making it easy to find the topic of interest. Each entry includes an Abstract that provides a brief, concrete introduction to the topic and how the entry is organized, a Presentation of the Topic, including a discussion of applications and issues, a Bibliography of works discussed in the article, and a helpful list of Further Reading.
