Micro Globalization: Methodological Consideration (----How did the new coronavirus achieve its global pandemic?)

Abstract


Micro globalization refers to globalization based on ordinary people. It is a "people-oriented" global connection, covering a mixture of social and spatial relationships worldwide, such as overseas investment, world travel, and even immigration. People's cross-border, social and spatial transactions and connections are usually based on the connection between the source area and destination. This connection has become more and more frequent and close. The current global pandemic of COVID-19 fully shows that, in other words, this "virus globalization" is based on extensive and intimate human-to-human cross-border exchanges. And such "micro globalization" is expanding all over the world and has a profound impact on our daily life. How to distinguish the "micro globalization" related to our everyday life from the "macro globalization" we often talk about? What are the essential characteristics of "micro globalization"? This paper's main content seems to be a new angle for us to study globalization. This paper attempts to provide some thoughts for such efforts.
