Here’s some excellent summer reading. WEF explores the question, ‘Has globalization been oversold?’
The articles in this series provide some vastly different vantages looking at this complex challenge.
Personally, I think that traditional conservatism, communism and socialism have all failed. I’m a passionate neoliberal but there must be an effective safety net for the disadvantaged but not the widespread abuse of welfare that we see in many European countries, especially the UK.
Unfortunately neoliberalism which is underpinned by globalization depends on politics. A good example is Brexit, which nominally supports globalization but weak political leaders are likely to lead to poor trade deals.
