I always wondered why "globalization" bothered other progressives, more than it bothered me. Now I think I was lost in the terminology. There's nothing inherently wrong with international trade. What's worth getting angry about is patterns of exponential exploitation.

I recently learned the term "neoliberal." It's also a confusing term, but this article on neoliberalism brought some things into perspective for me.

Hey, you can't say markets don't work. In fact, they sometimes work too well. Read Natural Capitalism for ideas on how to harness the power of markets, without externalizing costs (i.e. hurting people and the environment).
