Barriers to Globalization. Obstacles

I'd like to have your ideas on what are the major hindrances to globalization? Thank you...

Hindrances to Globalisation

1. Improper business ethics
- The Chinese in African countries are coming to dump their cheap materials and in all the sectors that they are involved they are treated with suspicion.
2. Poor legislation
- Countries should have laws that make it possible for willing international investors to easily do business while at the same time promoting the indigenous people's rights and business interests.

Barriers and Obstacles to Globalization

@Gwande: Other factors that affect globalization include:
3. Restricting Policies
- Immigration policies that restrict free entry
- Trade policies that promote protectionism and restrictions to free flow of trade & commerce.
4. Culture
- Some cultures restrict free human interactions like marriages.
- Language and communication can constitute barriers
5. Terrorism
- Some persons of some ethnic or social class may be denied free entry and movement in some countries.
6. Poverty
- Movement around the world requires substantial resources, which people from poor countries cannot afford, constraining free movement of labor
7. Poor Education and Technology - Double edged
- The less educated have limited market and choice where to offer their labor.
- Technology can also undermine free movement and contact of humans.
