It is difficult to draw conclusions on whether we are going towards a convergent point through the globalization process. In my opinion, diversity, both at an individual and cultural and national level, is too great to support such a thought. People will always remain diverse and this diversity is bound to be an obstacle towards a convergence that can often be seen as deleting individual identities.
On the other hand, at least in economical terms, we seem to be well on the way of achieving a certain integration in a system of trading goods and services, as well as capital. The economic global environment has certainly reached a convergence from many points-of-view and can be related to such a scheme. The conditions that have made this possible find their answers in the economic rather than social spheres and, as previously mentioned, the effect on other structures will probably be less significant.
