Description

This text is a powerful, level-headed defence of globalization - a phenomenon which is enhancing our concept of individual freedom. It looks at the shanty towns of Sao Paulo and the London that has revolutionized the telecommunications industry, to answer questions about the future in this age of globalization. The book questions aspects of politics and society and unveils a new meritocratic global ruling class, which it dubs "Cosmocrats", as well as addressing the winners in the globalization process it covers the losers - from car workers in the US to the environment in Bangkok.
