ESSAY

An essay is a written assignment in which students try out ideas and arguments
supported by evidence.
Write an academic essay of not more than 2,500 words in answer to the following
question:
“How the Superpower Trade War has affected New Zealand”
To be successful in answering this question in an essay, it is suggested you:
 Begin reading about this specific topic: one key article is “What Trump’s war means
for New Zealand”. This article can be found on the IBS690 Moodle “Assessments”
page. Note that this is an older article. Research more recent and relevant
publications around the theme of the (populist) resistance movement towards
continuing globalisation (in particular in the USA), the timeline and major events in
the trade war between USA and China, and New Zealand’s cu
ent trade
elationships and deals with both countries.
 Then start writing your academic essay.
 Briefly summarise what globalisation is (approx. 250 words).
 Consider the trend of ongoing globalisation in the past 30 years and how
globalisation has affected New Zealand. Include in your description marked
economic, technological and societal changes and opportunities (approx. 500
words for these two sections together).
 Then put forward a reasoned and balanced discussion answering the above
question. It is also suggested that within your discussion you consider the
following: o analyse the main drivers behind the resistance towards ongoing
globalisation; o develop a sense of the challenges and opportunities that could
arise for New Zealand if this trade war between the USA and China were to go on;
and o form a clear view as to if and how New Zealand Government and
usinesses should respond to this threat. (approx. 1,500 words)
 Conclude (approx. 250 words).
 Include a list of researched sources and references (at least half of your list will be
quality publications like articles from recognised journals in the field of International
Business). Strictly use APA referencing only!
Good Luck!
TIPS ON HOW TO WRITE A GOOD ESSAY
1. Research: Begin the essay writing process by researching your topic, making
yourself an expert. Utilise the internet, academic databases, and the li
ary. Take
notes and immerse yourself in the words of great authors.
2. Analysis: Now that you have a good knowledge base, start analysing the
arguments of the articles you're reading. Clearly define the claims, write out the
easons, the evidence. Look for weaknesses of logic, and also strengths.
Learning how to write an essay begins by learning how to analyse essays written
y others.

3. Brainstorming: Your essay will require insight of your own, genuine essay-
writing
illiance. Ask yourself a dozen questions and answer them. Meditate with
a pen in your hand. Take walks and think and think until you come up with
original insights to write about.
4. Thesis: Pick your best idea and pin it down in a clear assertion that you can
write your entire essay around. Your thesis is your main point, summed up in a
concise sentence that lets the reader know where you're going, and why. It's
practically impossible to write a good essay without a clear thesis.
5. Outline: Sketch out your essay before straightway writing it out. Use one-line
sentences to describe paragraphs, and bullet points to describe what each
paragraph will contain. Play with the essay's order. Map out the structure of your
argument, and make sure each paragraph is unified.
6. Introduction: Now sit down and write the essay. The introduction should grab
the reader's attention, set up the issue, and lead in to your thesis. Your intro is
merely a build-up of the issue, a stage of
inging your reader into the essay's
argument.
7. Paragraphs: Each individual paragraph should be focused on a single idea that
supports your thesis. Begin paragraphs with topic sentences, support assertions
with evidence, and expound your ideas in the clearest, most sensible way you
can. Speak to your reader as if he or she were sitting in front of you. In other
words, instead of writing the essay, try talking the essay.
8. Conclusion: Gracefully exit your essay by making a quick wrap-up sentence,
and then end on some memorable thought, perhaps a quotation, or an
interesting twist of logic, or some call to action. Is there something you want the
eader to walk away and do? Let him or her know exactly what.
9. Style: Format your essay according to the co
ect guidelines for citation. All
o
owed ideas and quotations should be co
ectly cited in the body of your text
according to APA referencing guidelines (short in-text citation).

10. Language: You're not done writing your essay until you've polished your
language by co
ecting the grammar, making sentences flow, incorporating
hythm, emphasis, adjusting the formality, giving it a level-headed tone, and
making other intuitive edits. Proofread until it reads just how you want it to sound.
Writing an essay can be tedious, but you don't want to bungle the hours of
conceptual work you've put into writing your essay by leaving a few slippy
misppallings and pourly wordedd phrazies. Remember that Presentation
accounts for 20% of your overall mark.

How the Superpower Trade War has affected New Zealand
Globalization defined
Globalization refers to the phenomenon through which the world has become one single market, with open trade and exchange of expertise and resources between the various countries in the world. There has been a growing interdependence between countries with regards to their populations, cultures and economies due to globalization. There is free cross border movement of goods and services between countries today and this has made the world, a global market (Beck, 2018).
Over the course of years, countries have created partnerships, signed treaties and made compromises in order to further global trade. With the influx of technology and improvement in international relations between countries, global trade became possible. Today, the effects of globalization are felt worldwide. These effects are both positive and negative and there is no saying which is greater (Nistor, 2007).
Globalization has helped economies by allowing local goods to be sold internationally thereby raising its price and value. It has also allowed the import of foreign goods resulting in the influx of quality products into countries.
On the other hand, local markets now have to face fierce competition in the face of international competitors. Countries have also often seen imbalance of trade due to greater number of imports than exports. This has caused economic imbalance for certain countries as well. So the cumulative effect of globalization is still debated.
New Zealand’s economy over the past 30 years
New Zealand’s economy is a fairly small one. It’s GDP is estimated to be around $85.34 billion only (Stats NZ, 2015). It is also classed as an agrarian economy and is largely dependent on agriculture and farming. Besides agriculture, manufacturing is of great important to New Zealand as well. New Zealand makes a large amount of export as well as import of goods and services. The major exports of New Zealand include, iron ore, coal timber, natural gas, oil, hydropower, gold, limestone. Major imports of the country are vehicles, machinery, fuels, plastics and aircraft. New Zealand was one of the most regulated economies in OCED. Significant changes to the economy as a result of ‘Rogernomics’ liberalized the economy and reformed the economics of New Zealand completely (Abe
ach & Christensen, 2001).
Economy
New Zealand’s economy entered a period of steady growth in the last 30 years. Starting from the 1980’s, the country saw a diversified and deregulated economy that propelled its surpluses and reduced unemployment greatly. The change from being a heavily regulated economy to a liberal economy
ought New Zealand great goods (Scott, 1996). The country projects a steady economic growth in the future as well (NewZealand Now, 2019).
Technology
The technological advancement of New Zealand also took a hike in the last 30 years mainly due to globalization that opened the doors for both talent and resources into the country. Many companies well known in the international technology marketplace like Weta Digital, Xero and Rocket Lab were established. Studies show that the technology sector generated exports of 6.3 billion New Zealand dollars amounting to 9% of total export value in 2015 (NewZealand Now, 2019).
Society
The society of New Zealand comprises of diverse cultures. From 1980’s onwards people of different ethnicities were encouraged to settle in New Zealand and the country has seen diversification of culture in the recent years. Studies show that New Zealand hosts 15% or Maori’s and 12% of Asians are settled within New Zealand (NZ History, 2019).
Opportunities
Globalisation has created many opportunities for New Zealand to grow in the world market. It has created opportunities for prosperity through economic competition, diversity, foreign trade, immigration and business growth. (NZ History) However, all has not been well regarding the em
ace of globalization by New Zealand. Debate has been growing in the country slowly regarding the effectiveness of globalisation. There has been a rise in protectionism thought among people who consider globalization to have ruined the chances of local businesses and given all...
