Reversal of globalisation?

The current socio-economic and environmental crises underlines more than ever the costs of globalisation (and makes people think about it) and probably pushes for some fundamental or structural changes in how our worldwide economies are organised.

Statements of the CEO of Philipps in the Financial Times stress this recent evolution.

‘Think global, act local’: the mainstream of leaders probablystill lough at that but the physical reality and limits of our world will show soon that this is the only way forward.

Obviously this doesn’t mean that globalisation would have no positive side: it does have a lot but it would be better to have a balanced approach of it and assess where it is really beneficial (taking especially into account the environment and the non-developped countries) and where it brings more damage than benefits.
