Question 1: In 2018 Greenpeace Canada ran an advertising campaign called “Don’t suck the life out of our oceans”. With specific reference to the concepts covered in our course, describe the interplay between the dimensions of globalization as represented in these advertisements, the discourse that they represent, and their commentary on globalization.
Question 2: In your text, Manfred Steger recounts Karl Polyani’s analysis that the origins of the social crises that gripped the world during the first half of the 20th century were based in ill-conceived efforts to liberalize and globalize markets. He claims that commercial interests came to dominate society by means of a ruthless market logic that effectively disconnected people’s economic activities from their social relations. The results included two world wars and the Great Depression. Are the processes of globalization since 1944 fundamentally different from those in the early part of the 20th century? Why or why not?
About this task:
The paper will attempt to answer two questions about global connections. The first question is on introduction of the dimensions of globalization and the commentary on globalization as identified from the advertising campaign known as “Don’t suck the life out of our oceans.” The second question is on whether the processes of globalization since 1944 are fundamentally different from those from the early part of the 20th century. The response is on the origin of the social crises in the first half of the 20th century. The discussion will also indicate the impacts of globalization on environmental degradation respectively.
