The paper "The Relationship between Globalization and Unemployment" is a perfect example of a macro & microeconomics annotated bibliography. According to Ukpere and Slabbert (2009, p. 38), there has been an increase in the number of people who are unemployed and this might have occurred due to automation or due to movement of business in other regions in order to take advantage of favorable business climate, government policies, cheap labor, lax environmental laws and tax holidays. Additionally, many companies have decided to lay off a large number of their employees so as to reduce their cost and increase their competitiveness globally.
Furthermore, global logic of competitiveness has influenced organizations to outsource their employees and to downsize their operations thereby causing unemployment (Banerjee & Nag 2011, p. 592). Moreover, top managers have been lured to promote unemployment and under-employment in many global organizations in order to be rewarded for saving cost.
