It depends on what connotation one gives to Globalisation. The middle class tend to gain from this integration. Creative destruction is an inevitable by product of this phenomenon. National identities are compromised with. It results in a dilution of identities.

kinda ironic, coz there is another theory (hypothesis?) going around about how it (globalisation)actually results in a sharp delineation between ethnic (not necessarily national) identities, and leads us deeper into a religious fundamentalism...

in my experience, there is more to be said of that theory than the dilution one...

perhaps later in the cycle (i see it as a cycle), there will be a dilution of national/cultural/ethnic (in that order)identities, but for now, no...

case study in question (again, in my opinion) would be the caribbean, especially trinidad and tobago...

and then of course you may be talking from a solely indian perspective, and i dont think i can comment on that...

hmmm....
