Globalization and Spatial Mobilities

Commodities and People, Capital, Information and Technology

Aharon Kellerman

Presenting a comparative examination of five major voluntary global movements: commodities, people, capital, information and technology, this book traces and develops discussions of globalization and spatial mobility. The book further covers the means and media used for these mobilities: ports and ships, airports and airplanes, international banking electronic media, and the Internet, telephony and TV. Two concluding chapters focus on the mobile globe, highlighting present and future global mobility in general, and the relationships among the five global mobilities, in particular.

Chapter 12: Conclusion

Aharon Kellerman


The chapter begins with a summary of all the chapters. It then moves to the presentation of speculations on the future leadership of global mobilities. China seems to emerge as the new leading core for global mobilities, within the wider leading continental core of Asia-Pacific. China’s seniority was noted in the previous chapters for the mobilities of commodities and people, along with its emerging leadership for the mobilities of finance and technology. It seems that China’s governmental controlling is and will be the Chinese ‘flavor’ for the twenty-first-century wave of globalization, and this goes hand in hand with the desire of China for leadership in global mobilities. Chinese direct governmental involvement may constitute a kind of ‘big brother’ supervision for some mobilities, prevailing side by side with an additional, indirect and sometimes merely potential Chinese surveillance and control for other mobilities.
