At Davos this year, the world’s economic and political leaders stand warned: do globalization better, or it will be derailed by the growing legions of the discontented.”  (Source: Project Syndicate)

Excellent analysis by UN Special Food Rapporteur Olivier De Schutter of the failures of capitalist globalisation.

The big question is whether globalisation can "be done better" under current rules of free and fast movement of big capital, easy delocalisation for industries and consumer demand for low prices of consumption products. How can governments do globalisation better whe they have no grip on the systems and values of production and consumption. This is where we really need a complete overhaul of existing capitalism but who will drive this?
