Globalization, the process of international integration, is happening faster and faster. Technology plays no small part in all of this, since improvements in technology allow people to interact with more people in far-flung places and to communicate with the office when they’re out of the city, country, or continent.
Of course, here in North America, many of us know what it’s like to travel across borders. There’s always been a lot of travel between Canada and the US. Nearly 300,000 people a day cross the border between the two countries. Not surprising, since the Canada-US border is known far and wide as the world’s longest undefended border.
