This article from Issues of Science and Technology by Ralph E. Gomory and Harold T. Shapiro is about how globalization is effecting our world and what is causing the rapid growth of globalization over the years. This article discusses the scientific leadership of globalization including how the role of academic universities has played a huge role in the expansion of globalization. This article also discusses how globalization is a system driven by profits and how the role of companies across the nation in the U.S. are causing the rise in global trade. This article also asks the question “Whether today’s very pronounced globalization is good or bad for the United States as a whole, rather than discussing only its effects on certain labor markets?” which allows students to question the different effects of globalization and how it is changing the United States.
