The Progression of Competition

In class we have discussed the significance of the Silk Road as a beginnging point for globalization.  When we think of globalization as the sharing of ideas and cultures in a cause and effect modality, then we can then see how Mercantilism, Imperialism, and Capitailism are all ideologies, or theories of ideas, that brought about the modern world culture we live in today.  Connecting the dots of this tangled web we live in can be a daunting job, but when we take each thread on its own, identify, examine, and discuss its roots and its current effects, then we can stand back and view that same tangled web with understanding.

Allons y!
