Rethinking Globalisation Blog

Given the recent and ongoing financial crisis it is probably a good time to think carefully about how we got here and where we are likely to end up.

To this end, the inbox today informed me of a newly launched blog:

Rethinking Globalisation is a new blog from Global Trade Watch.

As you can see, they will be covering many of the same issues that I touch on in this blog but from more of a trade perspective.

It will be interesting to chart the blogs progress. Spelling "globalisation" with an "s" is a good start although this will cost them in terms of google hits.

This is a space for people to discuss issues and ideas about globalisation, global trade and global justice. To discuss and debate how the global economic system is affecting people and the environment. And to think about how more ecologically-sustainable, democratic and people-centred economic systems might be possible.

We’ll try to post new material every few days - please visit us regularly and please join the discussion by leaving your views in the comments section.

Finally, if you have any great ideas for this blog, please feel free to email us at

I reckon proper spelling is worth sacrificing the glory of "google-juice" for!
