Has globalization condensed the world because space appears smaller due to the compression of time? This is the question Inda and Rosaldo answer with an astounding “yes”. Because we can access a part of the world that was mysterious before expedited globalization, the world seems smaller. However, before this increase in the pace of globalization, populations remained isolated and distinct from one another. One would think that this isolation made each group’s world seem extraordinarily small. Then as soon as people started realizing the amount of undiscovered terrain, the world began expanding in their minds. I would argue that Inda and Rosaldo’s argument about the “shrinking world” does not hold relative to the previous mindset: as globalization increases, the world literally expands in the minds of most people.
