Quote / Globalization / Jim Garrison

Taken cumulatively, the integration of the world as a whole, particularly in terms of economic globalization and the mythic qualities of “free market” capitalism, represents a veritable “empire” in it’s own right.. Few have been able to escape the “structural adjustments” and conditionality’s of the world bank, the IMF international monetary fund, or the arbitration’s of the world trade organization, those international financial institutions that, however inadequate, still determine what economic globalization means…

Such power of globalization that within our lifetime we are likely to see the intergration, even if unevenly, of all of the national economies in the world into a single global, free market system.

Jim Garrison, president, state of the world forum.
