    Re: Globalization does more good than harm.

    Say:

    The main positive consequence of globalization is the flourishing of the world economy. Globalization creates conditions for solving some of the most serious problems of modern society.

    You are right when you don't put "the" before "globalization".

    Nine out of ten times we say "people" rather than "human beings".

    It is unclear to me what you think globalization is.

    You use a lot of empty phrases. Is that to increase the word count?

    Yes, it is. I need 300-350 words.

    Re: Globalization does more good than harm.

    Because it is a sample exam essay topic. I have only 4o minutes and I do not think I will have enough time to write everything I know about a particular question in the best possible way.

    Re: Globalization does more good than harm.

    Interesting. So you can take either side?

    Re: Globalization does more good than harm.

    What do yo mean by 'either side'? I can choose if I partly agree with a particular statement, or disagree completely or agree completely. These are the options.

    Re: Globalization does more good than harm.

    But I thought I can include opinions for both of the sides in an essay. Am I wrong?

    Re: Globalization does more good than harm.

    You can state what both sides are but still say which side you agree with. (Professor Williams does it all the time. (Dr. Sowell used to write a weekly column, but he retired about a year ago.))

    Re: Globalization does more good than harm.

    Maybe you could post just one paragraph at a time. It would be easier for me that way. Also, it might be helpful for you to read Bassim's stories and my corrections/suggestions.
