Welcome to MrGlobalization.com !



We are deeply worried by the course of globalization.  This is why we created this website.

Sure, economic globalization has brought immense prosperity and poverty reduction in the Western world and more recently in Asia.

But today, globalization shows too many worrying signs -- financial crises, yawning gaps between rich and poor, health and environmental damage caused by foreign investment, human rights abuses in export factories, or discrimination against migrants.  The list goes on and includes the ravages inflicted on the global climate, biodiversity or fish stocks.

Then there is the explosion in global economic crime such as: trade in counterfeited goods, drugs and arms; illicit financial flows and human trafficking.

The fundamental problem is governance.  Our governments are not doing a good job. 

We must understand better what is good and what is bad about globalization.  We must pressure our governments and business to create a fair and just globalization.

This is the point of this MrGlobalization website.  It is a vehicle to disseminate information, to express our thoughts and to get reactions. 

Only we, the citizens of the world, can really make a better world.

Happy reading!

We look forward to hearing from you: whether you are an old friend from the Australian Treasury, OECD, ADBI, Sciences Po, American Graduate School, or Sophia University; or whether you are a new friend who found me on the web.
