The word count for a page will vary depending on font size and type, margin size, and spacing elements (single/double space, blank lines, subheadings, graphics).
For a page with 1 inch margins, 12 point Times New Roman font, and minimal spacing elements, a good rule of thumb is 500 words for a single spaced page and 250 words for a double spaced page. Using this as an example, a 3-4 page double spaced paper is 750-1000 words, and a 7 page double spaced paper would be 1750 words.
Assignments often specify a research paper or essay length in terms of words, rather than pages - a paper of 750-1000 words or a paper of 1500-1750 words. This way a student's paper will still meet their instructor's length expectations, regardless of varying font size, margin size, or use spacing elements.
When viewing an electronic version of a student paper in MicroSoft Word, the exact word count can be easily determined. Some research assignments require students to include the word count of their paper.
Also, clarify with your instructor whether the words on the title page, abstract (if used), and reference list count toward the expected word/page count.

Let us take a closer look at these consequences of globalization.

They were also the first business to introduce 3G services in Nigeria. Now, Nigerians can communicate and network with people all over the world.
Political conformism: With the increasing influence of foreign companies on developing countries’ economies, governments of developing nations need to carefully consider the effect of their policies on foreign investors. As is well known, most developing countries practice different forms of autocratic or pseudo democratic forms of government that lord it over their populace (Mostert, 2003).
Now, governments of these countries need to consider economic policies, tax forms and human rights decrees that will encourage foreign investors to come help develop their nation. This has helped alleviate lots of oppression that citizens of developing countries experience (Balakrishnan, 2004).
Now, we examine a few disadvantages of globalization on developing nations.
Death of small and medium businesses: The influx of global organizations into developing countries often results in stiff competition for local business (often small and medium scale businesses). Global organizations are armed with huge capital, advertisement strategies, sometimes higher quality and better product prices. This leaves smaller local businesses scrambling for crumbs of the market share and as a result, these SMEs crumble leaving scores of people jobless.
