    The impact of global change on consumer preferences of the Moravica District

    Science. Business. Society., Vol. 5 (2020), Issue 1, pg(s) 20-22

    The aim of the research, the results of which are presented in this paper, is to research the consumer preferences of the Moravica District towards the consumption of domestic and foreign products. As globalization alters market conditions, creates new sources of competition, it is impossible not to think about protecting domestic products and the impact of the increased import of foreign products on the preferences of domestic consumers. Liberalization, as a regulator of market, certainly influences the need to create mechanisms for the protection of domestic production, and the changed consumer preferences are an important factor in monitoring and defining new protection measures so that domestic producers of the Republic of Serbia are ready, primarily for the European market. For this reason, we decided to investigate what consumer ethnocentrism is like in the central part of the Republic of Serbia, in the Moravica District. As the results show, the challenges posed by globalization have greatly influenced consumer attitudes and changes in attitudes towards ethnocentrism.

  • Destabilizing factors in present times

    The analysis is focused on nationalism, populism, hate speech, multiculturalism. The processes designated as globalization are mobilizing a resistance that increasingly manifests itself as an effort to preserve the identity of various ethnic cultural and religious traditions. Populist extremism is nourished by what it describes as the antagonism between the organic, “pure”, nation and the nation’s enemies, whether these be the Jews, the Muslims, the ethnic minorities and/or the “corrupt elite”. Populism is a distorted form of democracy that promises to fulfill the loftiest ideals of democracy (“Let the people decide!”). In other words, the threat comes from within, because the politicians that represent that threat speak the language of democratic values.
    Hate speech is an utterance that denigrates or stigmatizes a person or a number of people on the basis of their affiliation to a group that usually, but not always, has certain unchanging characteristics, for instance, an ethnic or religious group. The fundamental problem here is the lack of understanding that the responsibility for the actions of one person may not be shifted to all people having some trait in common with the perpetrator. To distinguish between the individual and his group is a fundamental principle of democracy.
    The discussion on multiculturalism cautions against the attempts to idealize multiculturalism: the philosophy and reality of multiculturalism do not always overlap. Most European states are inclined to think of multiculturalism mostly as a framework for the coexistence of different cultures rather than as a transnational mechanism for the integration of new settlers within a dominant culture. According to the critics of multiculturalism, Europe has allowed excessive immigration without requiring sufficient integration, an inappropriate course that has resulted in the erosion of social cohesion, the undermining of national identities and the decrease of social trust. The defendants of multiculturalism, for their part, respond that the problem lies not in excessive diversity but in excessive racism. A core set of shared basic values and rules (the Constitution, the laws, the shared language) guarantees the cohesion of the whole and at the same time sets boundaries to the right to be different and to the principle of equal standing of cultures. The general framework holds clear primacy over the particular cultures. The immigrants may preserve and maintain only that part of their cultures that is not in contradiction with the mandatory shared whole (“selective preservation of culture”).

    Gradually in the world formed a unified information space. There is something that is called “global virtualization”.

It is determined that the availability of the information resources deficit can not be regarded as a question of it’s "non-participation" in global development. The statement of the problem under the new ideology of the current stage of globalization is the presence of fixing the problem, whose solution is the key element of forms, rates of entering the country in the new world structure.
