Think Globally, Spend Locally: The Illustrated Guide to Globalization
Globalization is the buzzword of the hour. Ill-defined but inescapable, it denotes the spread of Anglo-Saxon capitalism across the world. Columbus’ crossing of the Atlantic in 1492 paved the way, and Western nations have raced to dominate the world marketplace ever since. This brilliant selection of cartoons from both sides of the Atlantic deftly illustrates key themes in the progress of globalization. With an entertaining year-by-year summary of economic and political events over the last half century, and a fascinating chronology of globalization’s milestones from Columbus onwards, this deceptively lighthearted guide is also a fact-packed work of reference.
