Phi Beta Iota: With a tip of the hat to Scott Byrd, conference alumnus and emergency coordinator and analyst in Washington State, here is a globalization reference.
Good news: over time, social globalization (e.g. the spread of the Interent and information access) has increased.
Bad news: it is no longer keeping pace with financial globalization (probably because finance is phantom wealth, as in derivatives) and it is leveling off. What most do not realize is that Human Capital is the only inexhausitble resource we have, and scoial globalization is how we leverage all human minds all the time.
Note: the paperback is cheaper, but does not show the contents, for that go to the Amazon Page for the Hardcover.
