Chapter 11: Global mobilities: patterns and relationships

Aharon Kellerman


This chapter attempts to highlight global mobilities from several perspectives: the effects of global mobilities, the current overall geographical patterns of global mobilities and the relationships among the five major global mobilities: commodities, people, capital, information and knowledge. The chapter further attempts to portray briefly the features of the connected globe. The observations, which are made throughout this chapter, are based on the conception that the five leading global mobilities involve varying scales of the strata of human life: nations for trade, companies for trade, tourism, finance, information and technology, and individuals for tourism, finance, information and knowledge. The chapter begins with a review of some major impacts of global mobilities and it continues with geographical and mobility patterns for global mobilities. The highlighting of the interrelationships among global mobilities follow these two expositions. The chapter concludes the comparative discussions of global mobilities with a brief presentation of some major features of the interconnected globe.
