The globalization sceptic 

I do not discount the views of the three books on in this coming week’s New York Review of Books. Globalization and Its Enemies, How We Compete: What Companies Around the World Are Doing to Make It in Today's Global Economy and End of the Line: the Rise and Coming Fall of the Global Corporation might be summed up (very basically) by the idea that forces do not affect everyday people, who tend to think local and more inward. Yet I do not believe an insular, closed —which is not what these books advocate—is a way forward. However, a healthy level in questioning globalization’s tenets, as I do here, can only benefit those greater issues facing us: creating , turning rivals into neighbours, creating and human . Till you get the books, the review is a well thought out piece.

Thanks for highlighting these Jack -- I'll definitely add them to my pile!  
You’re welcome, Peter—glad they are useful. I like the sound of the reviews, to be sure.  
globalisation is a tricky concept and i thing we're a long way off before we will be forced to all work together to create a workable solution

Entries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
   With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
