Globalization from Genesis to Geneva: A Confluence of Humanity
The author brings a personal story to the vastness of the globalization topic; he blends historical development and current issues with his own philosophies, life and business experiences. The underlying thesis reflects the "coming together" of humanity, often masked by painful struggle of generations, cultures, religions and classes, yet realizing we have rarely had more opportunities for peaceful confluence to occur in our ever more interdependent world.
Humanity means a collection of all human individuals on planet earth, the very expression "globalization" is far from being a vague descriptor to some virtual reality; whether we like it or not, each one of us is a part of the "show." And it will not go away with the next election. It is here to stay, and has been with us since the beginning of civilization. It is driven by the inevitability of our destiny, and thus the issue is not whether to agree, rather it is the question of what we will do, or not allow, to avoid major, even devastating, setbacks such as the 2008 systemic meltdown of the global economy. Sustainable humanity is necessarily global.
