Globalisation has brought various effects on our modern society - some bad, some good. The fact is that globalisation has had a dissimilar impact on various countries.
While the western world has benefited from globalisation the most, third world countries still battle the everyday bad-effects of globalisation.
However, as the western world makes an effort to decrease poverty in third world countries, what happens when the procedure goes from global to national, and which way is the best?
Just these questions emerge in the article “Don’t blame globalisation for poverty” written by Liam Fox, brought in The Guardian. But is Liam Fox successful in delivering his message?
Therefore, the language in the article, in general, seems persuasive though formal choice of words and style.
Furthermore, through persuasive writing, Liam Fox relies critically on ethos. As his past makes him more than qualified to speak about the subject, it also makes his argumentation more solid in general.
Therefore, given Liam Fox’ ethos, he is able to make up a large part of his argumentation with postulates.
Just this, Liam Fox takes great advantage of as shown in the following quotes ”Two hundred and forty years ago, Adam Smith published one of the most important texts ever written” , “We stand on the verge of an unprecedented ability” and “There is no doubt” .
Terms that in itself seems undocumented, but given Liam Fox’ ethos, these claims suddenly become acknowledged and accepted.
Moreover, by making such great use of statistics and other experts, the trustworthiness of the article is extended.
