Despite the permanent, simultaneous presence of forces working to restrict the flow, technological advance will come to be seen as predominantly a global, not local, phenomenon of generation, dissemination, and use. All nations, it can be predicted, will adjust their policies and operations to accord with this concept.
Without doubt, that approach is also here to stay. The international trade of the world, it can be expected, will exist as a hybrid of both protectionism-nationalism and free trade.
Such a hybrid pattern, we can predict, will apply also to the flow of technology. Wherever it might first occur, every technological advance will tend to move to all those nations and private entities that want it, organize to obtain it, and are willing and able to pay or trade for it.
In this one-world approach, raw materials, manufactured products, services, money, management know-how, and even labor cross borders without constraint.
The prediction, more specifically, is that the effort to achieve technological advances will become so widespread, and engineers and resources to back them up so widely available in the world, that what happens technologically on the outside will become too important for any country to ignore, and a failure on its part to acquire and use external advances will be too penalizing to be tolerated.
The rapidly growing disparity between the total output of technology from all nations and the contribution of any single nation means that no one country in the future will be strong enough in new science and technology to depend solely on its own intellectual and physical resources to fight the competitive world battle.
Moving fast with new technologies and industrial revolutions, can also lead to turbulence on social, economical and environmental sides. There is a growing need for academic globalization of knowledge, with a feeling of caring and sharing for all to have economical, social and ecological sustainability for energy systems and technologies.
Today the trend for education has become to get more information quickly and race to cash on its applications without considering to acquire true knowledge. This is leading to widening of global inequities, raising an alarm to earth and its habitants
tv shows are as popular in the rich as well as in the poor countries, in Asia as well as in Africa. The youth of the world listen and dance the latest American Hip-hop. The fast food chains or the McWorld are common features even in traditional societies like India.
we are witnessing a new modern wave emerging from the west, not to say from America, which is defined as popular culture and which is flourishing. With the help of modern technology and communication it transcends borders easily and even reaches rich and poor countries, young and old, east or west, north or south and makes no distinction at all on its way.
From the anthropological context culture is more indigenous and refers to elements that condition and distinguishes human life as opposed to other mammals and gives a sense of identity. The main ingredients are probably language, history, religion, customs, artifacts, cooking, values, traditions, and also dependent upon man’s capacity for learning and transmitting knowledge to succeeding generations. While some societies have shut themselves up and try to protect form external influence (corruption) to preserve their culture, others are more open by allowing the dynamics of interaction to play or again by reaching out.
