Globalization and its impact on Supply Chain Disruptions under prevalent circumstances


Globalization is generally understood to include two inter-related elements: the opening of international borders to increasingly fast flows of goods, services, finance, people and ideas; and the changes in institutions and policies at national and international levels that facilitate or promote such flows. As we enter the fourth wave of globalization, compelled by the digital mutiny, there is changed debate over whether it is a valuable force: powering economic growth, and allowing the spread of ideas to improve people’s lives; or whether it wears down the communities, and broadens the gap between the elites and the rest of the world.
