Impact of globalization on your future
Impact of Globalization on Your Future

“It doesn’t matter where you live. Long distances used

to be a moat that both insulated and isolated people

from workers on the other side of the world. But every

day, technology narrows that moat inch by inch. Every

person in the world is on the verge of becoming both a

coworker and a competitor to every one of us, much

the same as our colleagues down the hall of the same

office building are. ”

Andy Grove, CEO Intel, “Only the Paranoid Survive”
