This study examines the implications of globalization through the analysis of individual facets of society and their interdependencies. Educational methods are adapting to the need for greater levels of competence. Developments in communication are becoming increasingly important in global relations. New economic policies are needed to create a global resource pool. Individual nations share the responsibility of making advancements in clean energy. Agricultural sustainability must be taken into account to ensure food security. Each of these aspects of society is isolated and analyzed such that the intricacies of their dependencies can be inferred. It was determined that globalization is inevitable, its factors are fragile and dynamic, and the extent of its growth is finite.
