Globalization and its New Discontents … Fifteen years ago, I wrote a little book, entitled Globalization and its Discontents, describing growing opposition in the developing world to globalizing reforms. It seemed a mystery: people in developing countries had been told that globalization would increase overall wellbeing. So why had so many people become so hostile to it? – Project Syndicate, Joseph Stiglitz
Joseph Stiglitz is concerned about why people are hostile to the idea of gigantic, impersonal and rapacious governments stealing from them while telling them what to do.
Governments don’t work on any level. But global government is worst of all. It will deliver ruin, mass incarceration and ultimately genocide.
Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
But Stiglitz is a world famous economist, so he has better ideas.
