Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The process of globalization continues to introduce new ideas, beliefs, and values to cities, states, and countries through increased social interaction. In this chapter, we discuss the impact that cultural change caused by globalization may have on the self-concept and identity, the ramifications that globalization may have on intragroup and intergroup relations, and who is more likely to endorse/accept globalization as well as a global identity. We use the Cultural Inertia Model to organize and conceptualize how those changes are influencing social and cultural interactions. We detail the financial benefits and the negative consequences of globalization. We also discuss potential solutions for reducing those negative consequences as avenues for future research.
