Globalization Cartoon

Some of the main elements of this cartoon are a father and a daughter talking about the child's homework. This cartoon is talking about globalization and how it has affected children along with adults. The child wants to out source her homework to India where people will do her homework for her in return of very little. I believe that this cartoonist thinks that out sourcing along with globalization has affected everyone. Even young adults and children are thinking like businessmen and want to find good and cheap labor. I believe the cartoonist feels this way by the face of the child. She seems to say that if everyone can do it, why can’t I? Out sourcing is a part of globalization and seems to be a profitable practice for all who do it. Maybe the newspaper the father is reading could have headlines of something like, Google shifts their main search engine to India. Overall, this cartoon shows a major aspect of globalization and how it is spreading.
