Competition and Globalization with 2 GIFs


Competition could be seen in every society within the groups, societies, and individuals. It is a form of struggle to achieve a certain goal, status, and position. Competition could be culturally conditioned. It’s a universal, impersonal, and a form of social interaction. An individual engages in competition to get the benefit. Competition is less violent compared to conflict. An individual focused on reward goal attainment.

People everywhere compete for the property, status possession for mates, and wealth. Competition and Co-operation often exist in reciprocal form. The modern capitalistic world has been running its activities in a competitive way to generate the economy. From a positive point of view, the competition process serves as a form of recreation and gives the new production in a non-hostile form.

In the negative point of view, competition may cause hostile injury and destruction in the day-to-day activities of a human being. In fact, competition is a driving force of social change that gives satisfaction and fulfills the need and expectations. Social Darwinists state that competition serves as a mechanism for determining the best suited-group economically and politically. The competition within the group not only struggles but also produces a positive result within the people. It often initiates under the systematic rules and regulations of society.


According to Horton and Hunt, “Competition is a struggle for possession of reward which are limited supply money, goods, status, power, love anything”.

According to Park and Burger; “Competition is interaction without social contact".


It has been a curse between two or more groups for the same goal, the achievement will not be shared among them all. Some characteristics of the competition are:

  1. Competition is continuous: An individual engages in competition to achieve something i.e. status, fame, wealth, and position. Competition between two or more than two individuals or groups.
  2. Competition is a universal process: Competition can occur in any society, place, and culture. Conflict covers all areas of social life. For example, competition between businessmen occurred to achieve maximum benefit, a lawyer for the clients, students to achieve better grades, players for trophies, and politicians to achieve power.
  3. Competition brings change: Competition within people brings social transformation. They adopt new ideas, technologies, views, and knowledge to achieve new ends in their everyday life. The competition process enhances the capacity of both an individual as well as a group that brings a change in the structure of the society.
  4. Competition is governed by norms: The competition process often governed by certain norms and values of the society. Norms of social control and mobilize the people towards the achievement of goals. The norms always force to perform roles and responsibilities as per rules and regulations of the society. The moral laws always govern individual activities with decent order.
  5. Competition is impersonal and personal: Competition would be both personal and impersonal. In impersonal competition occurs in a social world where competitors do not know about the identity of their competitors for instance when you are attending a public service examination may not have knowledge about your competitors. In personal competition, two or more than two competitors know each other while contest for the particular goals i.e. intra-party election for president in the personal conflict there would be rival relation and conflict type of competition.
  6. Competition may be constructive and destructive: The constructive competition always stimulating and supportive. The healthy competition obviously gives a good result. Sometimes competition might be unhealthy, fraud, and corrupt which neither creative nor productive.

Lastly, there are advantages of competition in society. The competition also helps to provide better service to the consumers in terms of better production and quality of goods. The competition process not only brings the change within the social structure but also provides the service to the people. Conflict is also a fundamental aspect to ensure rights and responsibility. Conflict within the organization aware of the people about the exploitation through the process of surplus generation. Conflict aware of lower-class people particularly investments, time, income, labor, and wages. Conflict within an organization inspires the market to bring information and structural change.


Globalization is normally associated with a history of capitalism. Globalization itself concerns the global networks of a commodity, production, labor relation, the flow of technology, the flow of ideas, and the flow of media. The globalization process changes the economic organization, institution, and social process. Globalization looks at the impact of industrialization, the global economy, and transnationalism of finance besides the flow of trade, finance, culture, and idea.

This process not only transfers the productive items but also their ideas, knowledge, and practices. The globalization process tends to intensify the global and local networks even they are living many miles away from one another. The globalization process promotes the displacement mainly from the center to the periphery or from its own specific territories to global spaces that decay the local value system.

Globalization is mediated by the migration, communication, technology, finance, it shows the core and periphery relationships. The globalization project is only initiated after the decolonization process. Global theories always encompass economic production, trade, colonialism, and imperialism—which depend on investment and profit-making. The globalization processes detach the local space through its policies of production, consumption, and investment.

The social process influences the business environment, action, and activities of the businessman, consumer behavior, personality development, choices, and interests. The socialization process develops the personality that affects the behavior of producers and consumers. The socialization process builds the different habits, attitudes, faith, and beliefs since the childhood period that guided production, transition, and management.

The more you have knowledge about society the more you promote your business scientifically and make appropriate strategies. Consumer habits often constructed within a social structure—which always influences their day-to-day activities. The nurturing process is culturally conditioned which assigns the rights and responsibility of the people.

The socialization process based on caste, class, ethnicity, and religion, thus we need to understand all of these social phenomena before initiating any business. The social process often guided by socio-cultural forces of the society, such as religion, language, values, attitudes, and beliefs.
