Overview

 

In 1922, nearly 50 years after Levi Strauss invented denim jeans, Levi’s were still sewn and sold in San Francisco. They were made from cloth manufactured in Greensboro, North Carolina that came from cotton grown in the southern United States. Today, Levi’s uses factories all over the world to produce its jeans. How have the company’s manufacturing processes changed, and why did these changes happen? In this Project, you will explore globalization and what it has to do with your jeans (and t-shirts, coffee, laptops, cars and a lot more).

 

Directions 

 

Use the Project resources to learn more about globalization and its impacts. Then, examine the two Production Route world maps in the Project resources. One map depicts the production route of a pair of jeans in 1922. The other shows the production route in 2013.

Then, using your own words, write an explanation of why the production routes changed in the 91 years between 1922 and 2013. Address the following questions in your explanation:

Explanatory Document should have in text citation and a reference paper APA format

  • What are some important differences you see between these two routes?
  • What is globalization?
  • What political, economic and sociocultural factors led to globalization? Provide at least one example of each factor.
  • What are some of the economic consequences (positive and negative) of the changes in the manufacturing process of Levi’s jeans, and whom do they impact? Remember, a negative consequence for some people might be a positive consequence for others.
  • What are some of the noneconomic consequences of globalization?
  • What other questions or ethical issues does globalization raise?
