Ozone depletion, air pollution and climate change are not just buzzwords ̶ they’re real-life issues that we often don’t take action on because we think they’re more expensive and less convenient. The good news is that even the smallest changes can make a considerable difference.

The Trump administration fancies the use of protectionist measures to boost production and employment in the U.S., to the detriment of other countries if need be. Such interference with economic globalization wouldn't just infringe on prosperity. It would probably also rekindle old and new political conflicts.

The combination of four factors, globalization, outsourcing, automaton, and the increasing adaptation and use of artificial intelligence is taking a growing toll on the low-income and middle-class sections of the society in developed countries, which is prompting the debate for the introduction of universal basic income.

Climate change is "Made in China," but they get off scot-free. We need to admit one simple truth: handicapping Canadians with a tax will have zero effect on global climate change. However, that doesn't mean we can't exert influence and pursue real solutions.
America may be moving from a fact-based era to a faith-based era. Such a transition is nothing new; it has happened at least a couple of times already in the history of Western civilization.

As I travel, I'm learning how dire it is when these companies with massive international funds behind them invade and usurp regional cultures with global products that have no soul, no passion, and certainly no emotional resonance for those regions.

Monsanto is now very much embedded in India. It has even been called the 'contemporary East India Company' and says GM food is necessary to feed the world's burgeoning population. Such claims are hidden behind a veil of humanitarian intent, which is easily torn away to expose self-interest. India does not need GM to feed itself and no false argument or regulatory delinquency to force them in can disguise this.
Only when the fruits of globalization are enjoyed by all segments of the society, especially the low-income and middle-class, would globalization be more acceptable politically and socially by broad segments of the population.
