This paper describes two topics, globalization and Winston’s model. In class we watched two different documentaries that complement these two topics. In 1-800 India importing a white collar economy, we learn how globalization impacts underdeveloped countries and the dimension of cultural flows that come with it. In Media consolidation and the erosion of
democracy, we learn how to use Winston’s model to analyse the case of low power radio against the mainstream radio. Both of these topics are very important in understanding technological progress in society.
