Good afternoon;

With globalization coming to the forefront, the global economy has become ever 

entwined.  America and Europe have great interdependency and were the focus 

of this week’s readings. Through the use of STELLA (Sustainable Transport in Europe

with Linkages and Liaisons with America) and STAR (Sustainable Transportable 

Analysis and Research) there was an ongoing dialog for the furtherance of 

globalization to include its impacts across both Europe and North America.  both 

continents are continually looking for ways to refine the transportation systems 

each uses for both goods and people.  I don’t think they are really that different 

each utilizes its current transportation system as manageable as possible. “emerging 

global production networks (GPN) that have been established as a consequence of

innovations in information and communications technology and of  the increasing 

degree of global economic and social integration coined as globalization.” With the 

Innovations that have come from globalization the impacts on the transportation in

industry have been vast.  The impacts are interesting to note that they have been 

mirrored on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean.  Corporations are finding it less expensive

to outsource the production of smaller components of their products as well as the 

transportation to and from their factories.  This is lead to a huge strain on the 

transportation system as it stands.  Looking to get ahead of potential problems from 

the future the author took the case of Europe and America and how some of the 

instrumented policies are going to play out to change the face of Transportation. One 

of the most impactful things that can happen to a society or population is when the 

little things fail.  Having transportation fail would be just such a case.  Governments 

both here and abroad have taken note of this fact.  Issuing both law and measures to 

ensure that fuel prices stay at a stable price point, and furthering reductions in 

greenhouse emissions. This is part of the forcing function to change transportation 

behaviors, giving the transportation industry the ability to make economic changes as 

well as environmental.
