"Results of transnationalization: The transnationalization of the economy and industrial production has dependency Countries to the richer nations. The national economic spaces were modified according to the interests of multinational companies. This has caused a revolution in the world economy and brought some instability to the local production systems. Briefly, it is possible to say that the process generated an internationalization of capitalist production. The emergence of this world economic space has resulted in the internationalization of capital. In this context, the United States, European countries, Japan and some other nations have benefited greatly. Transnationalization also served to consolidate American power in the world. In short, transnationalization has affected capital, geographic structure, economy and, consequently, people's lives. The process of transnationalization of capital also altered the entire labor context." "Http://www.grupoescolar.com/pesquisa/transnacionalizacao.html
While the Chinese dragon did not reach "birth to end" advanced capitalist powers invested heavily in labor-saving technologies, lean industrial plants, and internal and external industrial relocation to break down organized trade unionism, forced lowering of wages, contracts of precarious work, abusive use of legal and illegal immigrants, and other riddles and corrupting the job market! Production restructuring, globalization, flexibilization, privatizations, outsourcing (subcontracting, commissioning, teleworking, etc.), verticalization of production are terms that synthesize the so-called "third technological revolution" and the resurgence of economic-political liberalism from the end Of the Seventies.
An unprecedented revolution in the means of transportation, communication, computer science, robotics, mechanization based on microelectronics, bioengineering, new raw materials and new niches of cheap and / or slave labor. The new forms of production made possible the geographic dispersion of stages or even of the whole productive process! It's "The end of jobs. The inevitable decline in employment levels and the reduction of the global labor force "7 - states Jeremy Rifkin in 1994. Indeed, there has indeed been an extraordinary reduction in the well-paid jobs of the" white " "And for whom Rifikin dedicated a Requiem to the working class," The other side of the emerging techno-utopia - that replete with victims of technological progress - (...) incidental stories of lost lives and abandoned dreams.
This other world, Rifkin should consider, began with that grasp of Mao, ops, hands between US and China in 1972. A short century, a century of wars, a century of capitalist and communist lies camouflaging the imperialist thirst of nations (Unit States, Russia), which Henry Kissinger affectionately calls ambiguity between the divine historical mission of bringing democracy and the principles of freedom (free market) to "infidels" and under the American empire! The same divine mission was granted to Russia, Germany, United Kingdom, France, Spain, Portugal, Japan, Rome, Greece, Egypt, Mongolia summing up not to lengthen much the rise and fall of the empires!

The same goes for the quality of the goods and character of individuals: rare, unique, authentic, true, classic, individual, referential, noble, traditional, extraordinary. Everything that is original can be faked! "The corrosion of the character of production," says Richard Sennett,9 spreads to life! Increasingly human needs and desires are confined miserably to the rude, crude, false, necessary, reckless, pirate, ordinary! Unimaginable spiritual misery corrupts entire societies, especially those who call themselves advanced, First-Worldists!
An ordinary, foul, grotesque life in human relations, a very high degree of lies and corruption and blows in the economy, politics, religions, culture, finally, in all spheres of life coexists with a material opulence and concentration of riches ever bigger and corrupted!
