    Globalization does more good than harm.

    Globalization is mainly an economic process but it also has social and culture aspects. This worldwide phenomenon has both supporters and enemies.

    On the one hand, globalization is supposed to remove barriers and guarantee equal access to sources. However, the non-supporters of the process do not think so. What is more, there are people whose opinion is that globalization makes the rich richer and the poor – poorer. For example, managers and the people of business are becoming wealthier and wealthier while their workers are oppressed by unfair work conditions, low salaries and high taxes.

    On the other hand, ironically, the main positive consequence of the globalization is the flourishing of world Economy. Globalization creates condition for solving some of the most serious problems of modern society. Thanks to the free trade more jobs are created, companies become more competitive and consumers buy what they need in lower prices. In this way, problems such as poverty and unemployment are partly solved. What is more, globalization provides opportunities for poor countries to develop their economy by using new technologies and foreign capitals.

    In addition, globalization is the reason for the increasing interaction between people. The process of globalization removes the boundaries that exist between human beings and therefore facilitate the communication between them. For example, culture or language differences are not so important today. People are more likely to understand each other because of the globalization and the modern methods of communication. The positive consequence of that is that people learn how to respect each other’s traditions and how to converse without quarreling. As a consequence, differences can be overcome more easily thanks to the Globalization.

    In conclusion, globalization is a process which influences our lives mainly in a positive way. In spite of its non-supporters and disadvantages, this process has made a lot for our society. The economic growth and the facilitated interaction between people overshadow the negative features of Globalization. In other words, I agree that Globalization has given more to our world and society than it has taken from them.

    Re: Globalization does more good than harm.

    Do you have any facts to support your opinions?

    Perhaps:

    The goal of globalization is to remove barriers to trade. However, its opponents do not agree that it will do that.

    I think this is just an exercise in grammar and construction, not a rhetoric.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.

    Re: Globalization does more good than harm.

    A lot of the terms used are rather vague. For example, it is hard to tell what "equal access to sources" means. (Perhaps you mean resources.) Also, rather than non-supporters say opponents.
