The world as we know it is becoming increasingly interconnected as a result of countries harnessing the power of comparative advantage and increasing trade and exchange. This is hugely beneficial to the average consumer: we don't just have variety in goods and services but also their availability at a cheaper price. Globalisation not only has benefitted the consumer but has also strengthened countries' relationships both economically and politically. Gone are the days of strict protectionism and sky-high tariffs; instead, economies are much more assimilated and so are different countries' culture.
