"Americans are facing heightened economic pressures from the effects of globalization as workers from China, India, and other developing nations play a growing role in the world's economy. Advances in technology and transportation now mean that U.S. workers increasingly are competing with workers overseas—not just in manufacturing, but also in high-skill and high-wage sectors. Growth in information technologies, in particular, has facilitated deeper integration of economies across the globe while also posing both new opportunities and new challenges for the U.S. economy."
