Mathemacy in a globalised and ghettoised world
"Globalisation" is a popular term, although globalisation is far from a popular phenomenon. Globalisation can refer to a new global order of domination and exploitation. It can refer to a network of production lines, running from poor locations with cheap labour force where products are fabricated onto affluent areas where the products are delivered and consumed. Processes of globalisation mean both inclusion (of some groups) and exclusion (of other groups). Therefore, I consider ghettoising as being part of globalisation. The notion of globalisation is sometimes interpreted in terms of a growing concern for each other based on new forms of communication. News is spread immediately, and we become aware of problems all over the world.
