It is no surprise that China can seem bewildering.
China bewildered the Spanish of years ago as well. But they would have at least recognised a China that restricted navigation, wanted and often succeeded in setting the terms of trade and did things in its own way and that was rarely amenable to either persuasion or the use of force — a China, in other words, that expected the rest of the world to accept it on its own terms. Two and a half centuries of increasing Anglo-American dominance, a trend that only increased in the post-Second World War period, has not just meant political, military and economic pre-eminence; it has also meant the steady encroachment of laws, language, currency, interest rates, philosophy, business practices and general priorities into local prerogatives.
What might this narrative predict for a twenty-first century containing a China which has returned to its status quo ante?
Globalization Is Not in Retreat
The alternatives are not happy ones. Terms emanating from both the Second World War and the Cold War have recently been bandied about in reference to possible future scenarios. The Silver Way, however, offers a third possibility: globalisation with neither convergence nor major armed conflict, where the two sides integrate but remain apart. This third possibility is not one where one side progresses while the other is held back: rather, the parties are in equilibrium, albeit an unstable one, subject to disruption, changes in relative terms of trade, differing interests and objectives and more than occasional misunderstandings.
It is important to bring early-modern Asia back into the prevailing historical narrative, to update our maps by making them older. Once we do, many of the trends we now consider inevitable seem not to be trends at all.
Why the 16th century still matters: China, Spanish America and globalization
The link remains today in the form of the US dollar and the Chinese yuan, both of which are descended from the Spanish peso. The coming mid-century need not look like the turn of the last century, nor, God forfend, like the mids. It is important to bring early-modern Asia back into the prevailing historical narrative.

Further Thoughts on Dani Rodrik’s Critique of “Hyperglobalization” | Mercatus Center
Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email. Their cultures and traditions are seen to change as they slowly try to adapt to the lifestyle of the foreigners. In addition, half-true information is spread through the internet. Moreover, the citizens of china are over inhabited and as a result human trafficking and pollution increases in the country and because of this reason, the population in china are likely and expected to fall sick and get infected.
However the health of the nation is also getting effected.
This automatically attracts the locals and it causes them to eat outside and for this reason their food cycle would change and hence they would have to adjust to their new lifestyle and it could cause an unpleasant impact on their health and also in their balanced diet. It is also a trend in china that the locals would prefer junk food rather than a good proper balanced food which is good and beneficial for their bodies. Furthermore they always ignore the fact that junk food is not proper food, which is bad for their health and is not good for them for the societies and cultures that leave in china.
Nevertheless, the rich and wealthy families always grow and be prosperous time and again they always enjoy the luxurious items and their life to the maximum because of their high income and salaries which enabled them to get control over the nation which helps them get easy cash flow in their pockets which is later shared in their families. However, these kind of people are always expected earn illegal cash.
In addition they are always inclined towards corruption and they will never be content with what they have as they will always demand more.
Another negative effect of globalisation in china is when people move from developed to developing countries they would be faced with a low wage income and the working conditions and standard of living would not be the same with that of the developed countries. NASH, There are other positive effects of globalisation which are very helpful and useful for china. Some of them are that china has changed immensely and grown and has become more prosperous and become successful as well, the standard of living has also increased.
This country which did not have any sources of luxurious items and cars before can now enjoy all the resources and hence they are now very comfortable and relaxed in their lives and they are slowly starting to cherish in becoming more satisfied because they could now buy good clothes and new cars whenever they want and this is really helping the people of china a great deal and all this has happened because of globalisation. The other most powerful effect of globalisation in china is education, now days after you have completed high school and you would like to study abroad to pursue further education these days you can look for the best universities and colleges without even any problem.
You would probably go to another country or stay in your home country to study further or study abroad the reason why people would want to pursue their studies internationally is because of the better facilities and proper courses, education and good lecturers.
Furthermore after you have completed your studies abroad and specialised in a particular field of your interest or choice you could come back to your home country and spread the knowledge, Nevertheless some people would rather study locally because of the financial reasons if you would like to study abroad you would probably have to use more than you would if you would study locally. The other most positive effect of globalisation is the means of resources is in the Information Technology field these days you can do everything with a click of a mouse and you would get a lot of information and it would help you and could be really beneficial for you hence all this is again because of globalisation.
