it (information technology )
globalisation is the system of interaction among the countries of the world in order to develop the global economy. Globalization refers to the integration of economics and societies all over the world. Globalization involves technological, economic, political, and cultural exchanges made possible largely by advances in communication, transportation, and infrastructure.
As the Defination tell that it is interaction among countries and with IT we can never think of globalisation IT it allows for products that are important or essential to the economy.
so without It we can not think for globalisation.
well we can think of globalisation without IT but then the progree would not have been as large scale as is visible in today's world!! infact we should remember that globalisation took place earlier even in the absence of IT or even telephone( silk route). though the modern notion about globalisation has changed........ it still means transfer of goods from one country to another........ a kind of trade!!!
well it would be good if you ask this to your teacher as he/she would be able to give a better answer on this!!!
globalisation did exist frm time immemorial when men started moving out of their local community in search of work, leisure or education. this transit brought in knowledge of the unknown countries, places and countryside.
as broughtr out earlier, silk route, trade exchanges during the harrapan culture, indo-roman trade in the BC etc. are some such examples.
IT has become a catalyst in globalisation by bringing in near/ real time information across the world which reflects immediate reactions in other parts of the world. convergent technologies such as high speed data transfer, telecommunication, video conferencing, online money transfer, and onliner auction/ tran dealings has made the world a global village. advancement in transportation, be it high speed jets or very large ships effectively attempts to bridge the distance.
thus it is evident that globalisation did exists before the advent of IT ( comp based communication) as we know it today, but it could not have been possible but for information.
