Our world today is becoming much more globalized than it has been at any point in the past.  We are more connected to the economies of other countries.  At the same time, we also share more things in common with other countries in terms of culture.  Finally, we are creating more and more ways in which more countries have more sorts of diplomatic ties with one another.  All of this can be seen as globalization.

Economic globalization is the best-known aspect of globalization.  The main example of this is simply that so many things that we own are made in other countries.  The bookshelf I just bought was made in China.  I used cooking oil from Canada last night.  When I call a help center for technical support, I might talk to someone in the Philippines.  All of these connections are examples of economic globalization.

In terms of culture, we are also globalizing.  This is because things like the Internet make it easier for us to see and consume each other’s culture.  An example of this was the huge popularity of the “Gangnam Style” video by the South Korean rapper Psy.  Another example is the popularity of European soccer teams in countries around the world.

Diplomatic globalization is the least well-known of these.  It consists of things like the creation of more international organizations.  It also consists of things like the cooperation between China and the US (among other countries) to try to combat piracy off the coast of Somalia.
