     go to previous choice         Choice #51: the 3♠ card            go to next choice 


I welcome affluent nations / multinational corporations extending power and influence over developing nations, and believe everyone benefits. The former from new markets for products, resource extraction, etc, the latter from economic development and exposure to values/lifestyle /culture of the affluent world, which I view as superior to those they supplant.  I view favorably the nation-building that sometimes accompanies military interventions, and may even accept territorial expansion of the more developed at the expense of less developed world.


To insure globalization proceeds ethically, I think we need nation transcending authority. This could be provided by strengthening / democratizing existing institutions (UN, IMF, WTO, etc) and creating new ones. It would mediate disputes, do peace-keeping, and regulate international trade intervening when worker exploitation, environmental degradation or economic upheaval warranted. It would regulate capital flow, bust monopolies, and promote wealth / technology transfer aiding the poor giving all at least a minimum living standard and a voice.
