Internationalism is not globalization

Chris Corrigan

What I think needs to change is globalization. Globalization is the mechanism of standardization that makes is possible for capital to move quickly around the world. It is in some ways the antithesis of globalization. The EU was born on the twin pillars of internationalism and globalization. In North America we are entirely helps within global trade agreements with very little internationalization.

I nthe last five years, the price of gasoline in North America has roughlydoubled. So its not surprising that, except for theWal-Martization of the North American economy (offshoring NorthAmerican jobs and importing cheap Chinese crap to replace the goodsonce made domestically) to offset the higher costs of energy,$3.50/gallon gasoline has not affected any corporate or individualbehaviour. Altogether,North Americans now spend $104 for every $100 they earn.

What the new global middle class can do

Chris Corrigan

This article is looking for interesting ways to measure the growth of the global middle class. You have power and water, a mobile phone and an internet connection and you join a very interesting club, globally speaking. In North America we do a whole lot of “I’ve got mine.” Here is a case of getting seduced by the numbers and sucked into the wrong thinking. It does a generally poor job of it. The whole article is a bit of a dodge.

Why it’s hard to talk about dialogic containers in English

Chris Corrigan

Over my career I’ve had the gift of working extensively in indigenous communities in North America and one of the features of many (but not all) indigenous languages is the fact that they are verb-based as opposed to English which is very noun-based. In some ways it’s too bad that we use English in the Art of Hosting community as our global language!

You don’t have to spend time in Northern Ireland to appreciate that, I believe there are plenty of places in north America where the ‘communities’ are quite strong enough thank you. The idea of coming up with ‘seven keys to a strong community’ – or three, or twelve, or whatever number takes your fancy – seems charmingly nostalgic, as if we could just ignore some of the fundamentals of living in a highly networked, car-dependent, dispersed mass consuming global economy.

Why We Can't 'Afford' to Prevent Climate Change

If you have an ongoing population explosion (like that in North America caused by high immigration), that will mitigate this cycle somewhat, driving up demand and restarting the bubbles.

In this case we'd probably have an all-out global class war.
