Paragraph1-2: • America exports its culture on an unprecedented scale –because it is the unrivaled superpower The difference between modern time and past is that today’s technology flings culture to every corner of the globe with blinding speed
Paragraph3-10: • Us influences: Some examples- Hollywood McDonald’s Coca-cola Starbuck café Basketball,NBA,football American English
Detractors of cultural imperialism think that cultural domination poses a totalitarian threat to diversity • Another danger is the consolidation of the communications industry into a few conglomerates
Paragraph11-14: • A backlash is being felt in certain places Some examples- In Japan: locals have given us ideas a Japanese twist In Germany: there's stronger resistance to aspects of us pop culture In France :resistance is growing In the Philippines: even the best ideals have caused complications
Paragraph15-17: • How much good does American culture bring to the world ?How long will it last? • America feast largely on a diet of homegrown culture, but it imports modestly as well • Some experts believe Us domination of communication channels makes its messages entrenched than those of previous empires But not everyone thinks American culture will stand the test of time
My opinions about globalization • It’s a double-edged sword • Its advantages • Its shortcomings Thank you very much!
