    Default Globalisation/Globalization

    I'm not exactly against it.

    It's nice to see stuff that reminds you off home.

    However, I wonder...

    Why doesn't GM motors just call every car it makes around the world a GM and have more standardisation, and make it the best of the best, and stuff.

    Why isn't every Asda a Walmart by name?

    Why does Walker's have the Lay's logo if Lay's own Walker's, why can't we have the Lay's logo on our crisps/chips?

    This is for more commerce discussion and American influence around the world on everyday items such as Coca Cola and Phillip Morris Cigarettes and McDonalds and the plot to part us from our money.

    It's good and it's bad, it's bad because... It's still cool to be true to the traditions of where you come from pray they never die out, but it's good if you're in it, and, you're far away and because of it, see stuff that you're used to too, so it works both ways, for me; I can't help but notice British or European stuff abroad (like cars and stuff) and; stuff that reminds me of home and, if I notice something that's different, like something from home worded different or the same name different thing altogether (Milkyway Bars in America are like Mars Bars in the UK and Milkyway Bars in the UK are like 3 Musketeer' Bars in America), try explaing this to a bunch of 16yr old stoners when you're a 16yr old stoner talking about 'the light'; what's different about it fascinates the heck out of me.

    I reckon if an organization is so powerful they can do such unimpeded, go them.


    I am not against globalization, though i am not for it either.

    Because different markets want different things in a car.

    Why isn't every Asda a Walmart by name?
    Because the Asda name is stronger and more influential in some markets.

    Why does Walker's have the Lay's logo if Lay's own Walker's, why can't we have the Lay's logo on our crisps/chips?
    Because the Walker's name is more influential in some markets.

    You're right.

    Markets are stupid.


    But you're right, it's totally down to the market, and what consumers want, that's why we have Vauxhall and not Opel. People here (and people in Germany too) care about the brands, and true, GM motors will have different markets wanting different cars anyway, because different places/regions have different needs and wants.
