Aftermath: A New Global Economic Order? (Possible Futures) by Craig Calhoun, Georgi Derluguian

By Craig Calhoun, Georgi Derluguian

The worldwide monetary quandary confirmed deep issues of mainstream financial predictions. while, it confirmed the vulnerability of the world’s richest nations and the large strength of a few poorer ones. China, India, Brazil and different nations are starting to be speedier than Europe or the USA and so they have weathered the trouble larger. Will they be new global leaders? And is their progress because of following traditional financial guidance or as an alternative to powerful kingdom management and occasionally protectionism? those concerns are simple not just to the query of which nations will develop in coming many years yet to most likely conflicts over international alternate coverage, foreign money criteria, and financial cooperation. individuals contain: Ha-Joon Chang, Piotr Dutkiewicz, Alexis Habiyaremye, James ok. Galbraith, Grzegorz Gorzelak, Jomo Kwame Sundaram, Manuel Montes, Vladimir Popov, Felice Noelle Rodriguez, Dani Rodrik, Saskia Sassen, Luc Soete, and R. Bin Wong. the 3 volumes can bought separately or as a suite.

The overall outcome is an extreme potential for instability even in strong and healthy economic sectors. This is a likely possibility particularly in countries with highly developed financial systems and high levels of financialization, notably the United States and the United Kingdom. Let me illustrate with an example from the current crisis and one from the 1997 Asian crisis. When the current crisis hit the United States, many healthy firms, with good capitalization, strong demand for their goods and services, and good profit levels, were brought down.

5 With the WTO’s Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) in 1995, developing countries have been compelled to provide strong protection to IPRs, especially foreigners’ IPRs. However, when today’s developed countries themselves needed to “borrow” other people’s ideas, they did not respect foreigners’ IPRs very well. During the nineteenth century, many of them—including Britain, the Netherlands, the United States, France, and Austria—explicitly allowed patenting of foreigners’ inventions.

For instance, some of the rare earths that are a key input for electronic components (notably cell phones) are mostly mined by workers who use their naked hands for extraction, live basically in a condition of slavery, and die too young from poisoning to have been able to pass on the news of their abuse to the wider world.
