This article in Scientific American is fantastic. It discusses problems with a black and white point of view about globalization and hits on some of the things Peter and I have been discussing. They also echoed the sentiment Dr. Powell discussed in his sweatshop presentation. Overall, its an important call for balance and good judgement about policy creation and protestation.
The article highlights indirectly how colored the discussion of globalization is by money; poverty, financial institutions, etc. It was definately out of the scope of the article, but I'd like to find more about other aspects of globalization. I also wonder if the nature of the collective discussion contributes to the polarization of views.
