Where is YOUR place in global markets?
Internet dating and globalization
By Elena Petrova, Copyright 2004. All rights reserved.
Internet has changed our world fast and forever.
Global markets are the feature affecting every industry.
The whole world is watching "American Idol", "Survivor" and "Friends", listening to Eminem and Britney Spears, admiring "The Lord Of The Rings" and "Titanic", and reading the latest New York bestsellers.
We wear Malaysian-made jeans, Korean-made running shoes and our kids play with Chinese-made toys.
When you call to a tall-free number, someone in India, via Internet, handles your call.
Jobs are increasingly shipped overseas where companies can save thousands of $$$ using discrepancies in the income level. Why pay someone $100 per hour for a programming job when you can pay $20 per hour to someone in Eastern Europe and have the job done just as well?
Whether you like it or not, you are a part of global markets!
You can either be the object of globalization, the passive element of the world growing smaller -- or you can jump on the opportunity and become the subject and the user.
Those opportunities are everywhere!
You might be astounded to find an offshore company that can handle your website needs for a fraction of the money you are paying to your current employees!
Even if you do most of the work yourself, you might be in better off paying somebody overseas to save your valuable time for something that no one but you can perform.
And not only business-like!
Your business may be run by other people but there are certain things in your life that only YOU can do; one of them is finding a love partner.
Global markets are on this one, too!
International romance is no longer something people or newspapers are interested in talking about; it's kind of ordinary. Every day thousands people are chatting to somebody overseas via online dating sites. If you ever grow tired of your local dating market, you can always explore new global markets where you can score more!
The demographics of a particular country may provide an exciting opportunity for you to meet a partner of better quality than is available for you at home.
Men to women ratios differ dramatically between the countries.
For example, the latest figures from The Economist show that in United Arab Emirates there are 186 males for 100 females! It's clear the competition for eligible females should be stiff there. If you are a single guy, getting a woman would be hard in Emirates!
The lowest men to women ratios are in Eastern Europe, with countries like Russia and Ukraine having only 88 males for 100 females. There the situation is exactly the opposite way around: eligible bachelors are more precious than gold.
The latest Russian census provided astounding figures of 10 million more women than men!
No wonders modern Russian women utilize global markets and seek love and romance elsewhere!
So if you were a single male, exploring your dating options in Russia would make the perfect sense.
Global markets not only influence the economy on a wide scale; they also affect people's personal lives.
One can choose to be a passive element of globalization, or an active user of the new exciting opportunities offered by it.
