What Drives Globalization? Part 4/4

Globalization is driven by four factors:

  1. Cost
  2. Market
  3. Environment
  4. Competition

Competition:

To remain competitive, global rivals have to intensify their marketing everywhere by attempting to sustain advantages that, if weakened, could make them susceptible to market share erosion worldwide. Competitive companies introduce, upgrade, and distribute new products faster than ever before. A company that does not remain ahead of the competition risks seeing its carefully researched ideas picked off by other global players.

Leading companies drive the globalization process. There is no structural reason why soft drinks should be at a more advanced stage of globalization than beer and spirits, except for the opportunistic behavior of Coca-Cola. Similarly, German beauty products maker Nivea is driving its business in a global direction by creating global brands, a global demand for those brands, and a global supply chain that helps the company meet those demands.

Nonetheless, the four global drivers have affected countries and industrial sectors differently. While some industries, including paper and soft drinks, are truly globally contested, some others, such as government procurement, are still closed. Commodities and manufactured goods are already in a globalized state, while many consumer goods are accelerating toward more globalization. Similarly, the leading trading nations display far more openness than low-income countries and that openness is advancing the positive state of globalization in general.

  7. Online Slots Regulation In Alberta

    The responsibility for supervising and regulating gambling businesses in Alberta lies on the local gaming and liquor commission (also known as AGLC).
    In its turn, the organization is comprised of two departments: the Corporation and the Board.
    The Corporation represents the functional mechanism of the system, while the Board carries the governmental policy into effect through
    the triggers under its control. The organization elaborates
    the strategic directions and policies as well as delivers the implementation in conjunction with the largest
    financial institutions of Canada. AGLC is empowered to ensure the compliance of local gambling businesses with the fundamental
    principles indicated in Criminal Code as well as the documents adopted
    by the organization itself.

    In fact, the organization holds the power to license, regulate and monitor games of chance activities located in Alberta.
    The province occupies the second position in the list
    of the major Canadian gambling provinces, ceding the leadership role to Ontario.
    The organization is characterized by a relatively loyal (by the standards of Canada) attitude
    towards gambling activities and/or enterprises, looking forward to conduct their business
    in Alberta. Therefore, AGLC adopted a far-famed charitable
    license model that helps dozens of organizations to raise funds for a particular project.
