In this one world, it sometimes seems a race is on between the newly empowered and the recently dispossessed. The truth is not only that both realities exist simultaneously, but that one is a condition of the other.

Donald Trump and Senator Bernie Sanders' emergence into the political scene has potentially irreversibly altered the political landscape as we know it. Both candidates represent a form of their respective party's ideological populism taken to their logical extreme.

These Charts Show How Globalization Has Gone Digital

James Manyika

Globalization -- for many people, that word conjures up, at best, images of container ships moving manufactured goods from far-flung factories. In fact, since the Great Recession of 2008, the global flow of goods and services has flattened, and cross-border capital flows have declined sharply. But globalization overall isn't on the wane. Like so much in our world today, it has reinvented itself by going digital.

Sanders, Trump, & Cruz -- Lessons Not Learned Beyond Tenth Grade High School

Edward Goldberg | Posted 03.16.2016 | World
Edward Goldberg

Bernie Sanders's problem with exports, "because they benefit large corporations," is more than somewhat astounding. Who does he thinks works in all the Boeing plants? Doesn't he realize that a large percent of Boeing shares are owned by various American retirement funds and individual American 401k plans?

In an election year that finds both the left and right clamoring for political change, then, it seems suicidal for the Democrats to be putting forward a candidate who is as much a creature of the establishment as Hillary Rodham Clinton is.

The very ferocity and coordinated nature of the attacks on Sanders makes clear that the Democratic establishment views Sanders not merely as an annoyance, but as an existential threat. And he may be, at that.

A Progressive Vision of Globalization

Mike Lux | Posted 01.25.2017 | Politics

It is precisely because we can't stop globalization that we should have more rules in place to protect working families, not just here in America, but all over the world.
