Abstract

Globalization is a multidimensional construct used to structure international initiatives in economics, politics, technology, population studies, and education, to name just a few. Economist, Theodore Levitt, was the first to describe globalization phenomena, events, and consequences of changes in global economics. Levitt’s particular expertise was the complex world of production, consumption, and investment (Stromquist, 2002). Scholars and governments quickly embraced the term using it to describe political and cultural changes rapidly transforming nations and people worldwide (Spring, 2008).
