Write the part of your speech in which you summarize the information about the effects of globalization on Germany's economy. Where necessary, add information which may help to avoid possible misunderstandings. Globalisierung nützt vor allem reichen Staaten Veröffentlicht am 24.03.2014 Industrienationen sind laut Bertelsmann-Stiftung die Gewinner der Globalisierung. Sie wachsen so schnell, dass sich der Abstand zu den Schwellenländern noch vergrößert. Diese bleiben auf der Strecke. Zu den größten Gewinnern der Globalisierung gehören Deutschland und andere Industriestaaten. Rein Rechnerisch nütze die Globalisierung allen Ländern, überall wachse das Pro-Kopf-Einkommen, heißt es in einer Prognos-Studie im Auftrag der Bertelsmann Stiftung. Allerdings wachsen die Industrienationen so schnell, dass sich der Abstand zu den Schwellen- und Entwicklungsländern noch vergrößert. ,,Wir müssen erkennen, dass die Globalisierung die Schere zwischen Arm und Reich eher noch weiter öffnet", sagte Stiftungsvorstand Aart De Geus. ,,Erst über einen längeren Zeitraum wird sie dazu beitragen, dass Schwellen- und Entwicklungsländer die Wohlstandslücke zu den Industrienationen verkleinern können." 42 Länder [wurden] genauer untersucht. Demnach hat sich die Wohlstandslücke in den letzten zwei Jahrzehnten nicht verkleinert, im Gegenteil: Während durch Globalisierungseffekte das Bruttoinlandsprodukt pro Kopf in den Industrienationen um bis zu 1500 Euro jährlich stieg, wuchs es in Ländern wie Mexiko, China oder Indien um weniger als 100 Euro je Einwohner."

Globalisierung nützt vor allem reichen Staaten Veröffentlicht am 24.03.2014 Industrienationen sind laut Bertelsmann-Stiftung die Gewinner der Globalisierung. Sie wachsen so schnell, dass sich der Abstand zu den Schwellenländern noch vergrößert. Diese bleiben auf der Strecke. Zu den größten Gewinnern der Globalisierung gehören Deutschland und andere Industriestaaten. Rein Rechnerisch nütze die Globalisierung allen Ländern, überall wachse das Pro-Kopf-Einkommen, heißt es in einer Prognos-Studie im Auftrag der Bertelsmann Stiftung. Allerdings wachsen die Industrienationen so schnell, dass sich der Abstand zu den Schwellen- und Entwicklungsländern noch vergrößert. ,,Wir müssen erkennen, dass die Globalisierung die Schere zwischen Arm und Reich eher noch weiter öffnet", sagte Stiftungsvorstand Aart De Geus. ,,Erst über einen längeren Zeitraum wird sie dazu beitragen, dass Schwellen- und Entwicklungsländer die Wohlstandslücke zu den Industrienationen verkleinern können." 42 Länder [wurden] genauer untersucht. Demnach hat sich die Wohlstandslücke in den letzten zwei Jahrzehnten nicht verkleinert, im Gegenteil: Während durch Globalisierungseffekte das Bruttoinlandsprodukt pro Kopf in den Industrienationen um bis zu 1500 Euro jährlich stieg, wuchs es in Ländern wie Mexiko, China oder Indien um weniger als 100 Euro je Einwohner."
