Globalization on the rocks – so what's to smile about?
Inside this issue:
There's a kind of hush where once the praises of corporate globalization sounded most loudly. An Unholy Trinity – the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank and the World Trade Organization – sulks in its sanctuary, chanting an orthodoxy that no longer exists. Praying for business as usual in the corridors of power will never restore the myth of a self-correcting free market. High finance, the biggest of the winners from corporate globalization, over-inflated this false belief and then blew itself to bits, as if by accident. New Internationalist asks what remains and who's left to clear up the mess. As national 'taxpayers'- that's the rest of us, citizens – find themselves footing the bill into the indefinite future, the time has surely come to make way for more just and democratic systems – and a new internationalism. Fresh signs of life now spring most vigorously from a growing awareness that the Earth is not a toy boardroom globe but an endangered habitat that lives or dies by its intricate diversity, in a shared climate that's changung beyond all recognition.
