Countries are becoming more and more similar because people are able to but the same products anywhere in the world.
do you think it is a positive or negative development ?
Advancement in the internet and technology has aided people to shop and receive the desired goods from any location on the globe. This is definitely an encouraging achievement by the mankind. this has been also possible due to the free trade policy adopted by the world economies, thus bridging the gap between countries and making them identical.
Online commerce allows us to shop almost everything with an utmost convenience and thus it has been advantageous in saving time, energy and avoiding challenges such as to visit shops. Roughly 50-60 years ago, there were numerous trade barriers to obtain the products not manufactured in a customer’s country, however nowadays one can buy various foreign products such as Apple Iphone, Gaming console, Novel, etc. instantaneously over the internet. Thus this brings various countries closer and a person feels less of a difference between them.
There are numerous benefits in allowing free trade, firstly, it flourishes the gross domestic product of a country, who is the supplier and also creates new job opportunities. Also manufactures have been successful in creating a familiar shopping experience, This has been particularly true with few ecommerce providers like Amazon and e-bay, who have thoroughly maintained an indistinguishable shopping experience on any of their websites. for instance, buying a product from Amazon India or the EU website has same steps starting from searching , adding product to a cart, followed by a payment. Thus user doesn’t feel difference if he/she isn’t buying goods from the country of origin.
In conclusion, growth in internet and innovation in web technologies have benefitted people immensely, by facilitating them to shop from any part of the world.
