Decision-making within the global marketplace (discussion)

 Globalization and Decision-Making

For our first discussion, discuss globalization and decision-making. You all have some ideas of how globalization has affected your life, so let’s expand on that and discuss:

  1. How has globalization affected different world regions? 
  2. What are some of the benefits and costs of globalization for different sectors of society (for example, companies, workers, and communities)?
  3. How does globalization relate to the Saudi Vision 2030? 

Embed course material concepts, principles, and theories, which require supporting citations along with two scholarly peer-reviewed references supporting your answer. Keep in mind that these scholarly references can be found in the Saudi Digital Library by conducting an advanced search specific to scholarly references.Be sure to support your statements with logic and argument, citing all sources referenced. Post your initial response early and check back often to continue the discussion. Be sure to respond to your peers’ posts as well.You are required to reply to at least two peer discussion question post answers to this weekly discussion question and/or your instructor’s response to your posting. These post replies need to be substantial and constructive in nature. They should add to the content of the post and evaluate/analyze that post’s answer. Normal course dialogue does not fulfill these two peer replies but is expected throughout the course. Answering all course questions is also required.
