This is a highly controversial topic in some circles, so I would preface my answer by first stating that most people would answer the question, "I globalization a good thing?" based on individual perception of cultural value.  With that being said, positive effects of globalization include the ability to communicate with people all over the world in a way that has never been possible until the last century, learning and understanding the morals, traditions, and values of other cultures, and a sense of unity with all of humanity.  It can be argued that the negative effects involve a loss of cultural identity, a dilution of language, and a loss of individualism.
