30691 Globalization’s Paradox of Technological Interconnectedness and Human Alienation   NEW!

As a Mexican immigrant and now U.S. citizen, Hector E. Garcia has worked with federal and state government in relations with minority communities in the U.S. He has initiated and worked on international projects with private and nonprofit organizations such as The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU--part of The Economist Magazine financial group), E.F. Hutton, Prudential Bache Securities, the Caux Round Table and Initiatives of Change. In this course, you will learn about some of the reasons why the benefits of globalization do not seem to offset the serious dilemmas, which globalization has magnified. Learn as well about theories to reduce migration to the U.S. from poor nations and better address other dilemmas of globalization through a more collaborative worldview. You will become acquainted with ways of thinking and strategies to accelerate the process through which immigrants can become fully contributing members to American society and how to reduce potential conflicts with and within their communities.
