Globalization and the Chinese People
The California gold rush marked the start of globalization. By this time, communications
and transportation had advanced significantly to a state where people from different parts of the
world could go to one place to compete and work with others. The vastness of the gold in
California provided an irresistible incentive for immigrants to come. From the European nations
came the French, Spanish and British (Kanazawa 34). Peruvians ad Chileans also came from
South America. Hawaiians and Australians also came to California. Adventurers from Asia also
joined the California gold rush. Different Asian nations could have joined. Close to the America
west coast was Japan. Korea was also close to the west coast. China was in between these two
nations and the nations of Burma, Thailand, the Philippines, Indonesia, and Malaysia. Yet, apart
from the Chinese people, no other Asians joined the gold rush. Interestingly though, only people
from Guangdong province of China made it to the gold rush. It was now up to Cantonese people,
with their rebellion and adventure tradition, to represent China and Asia at large in the gold rush
(Kanazawa 23). Conversely, globalization was both a blessing and a curse for Chinese people as

they had no powerful rivals. Due to their domination, people from underdeveloped nations did
not migrate to western countries during this era. However, the gold rush in California was indeed
unique. The state was not only unique for its newly discovered gold, but like the Internet, it was
free. During the gold rush, California was transitioning from the rule of the Mexican to
becoming one of the states in the U.S. Ownership was in flux and uncertain (Duncan 30). There
was no governmental structure developed to implement property rights. All the gold in California
was free for everyone.
When the Cantonese learned that the discovered gold in California was free for the
taking, they understood exactly what this meant. Since the Chinese lost to British in the Opium
War, they were looking for such an occasion. It represented a chance for them to harness
resources to conquer the dominant Qing Dynasty (Kanazawa 25). Certainly, gold meant
resources to fund a revolution. Besides, traveling to a western nation would assist in modernizi...
