ABSTRACT

Manifesto for Globalization   [open pdf - 170KB]

From the Document: "Globalization is under attack. From the right, President Trump thundered to the UN that '[w]e reject the ideology of globalism, and we embrace the doctrine of patriotism. Around the world, responsible nations must defend against threats to sovereignty … from global governance.' From the left, Bernie Sanders proclaimed, 'Let's be clear. The global economy is not working for the majority of people in our country and the world. This is an economic model developed by the economic elite to benefit the economic elite.' US isolationism is part of a worldwide phenomenon: anti-globalizers have risen to power in countries from Brazil and Hungary to the UK. And they led efforts to build walls real and virtual against trade and exchange. From the intellectual right, globalization is blamed for cultural decay. From the left it is attacked as a source of inequality and repression."
