    The world had survived a couple of pandemics… I'm pretty sure that globalization would persist in some form.

    no globalisation=more chance for big war tbh. people trading and excchanging together made them interdependant. else you just end up with germany-like pre-1940 nation that tries to be fully independant

    Covid19 is an example of Globalization.

    If globalism is failing the next best thing is regionalism not nationalism as Brexit will demonstrate. Not a time to be launching a pond yacht in a typhoon.

  13. kick rrr

    Without globalization, everyone, especially the poor and the lazy, must work harder in jobs they don't like. Basic economics. Talk is cheap.

  14. fenris ragnarok

    Stop saying slowbalization, if that catches on I'm just going to ignore economics or something.

  15. Vicarious Witness

    Globalization cannot exist unless all currency and resources are contributed at fair value and it isn't. The globalization being discussed here is capital imperialism. And they call themselves "The Economist". These people are selling their imperialism as globalization. There is a tipping point where as long as you obey you will never know what your missing.

    Stolen jobs? No body steals jobs, CEOs want to make more money because neoliberalism. They are not patriotic except to money.

  18. Joaquin Reyna

    My question is this, if people don’t make enough money then how can their be demand? Without jobs…can we have demand?

  19. Mr Krabs

    I dream of money too.. 3:08

    In a divided technological world, there will be more innovation with competition. Such as arm and risc-v technologies
