Will Global Financialization and the Eurozone Debt Crisis Defeat European Cosmopolitan Democracy?

Will Global Financialization and the Eurozone Debt Crisis Defeat European Cosmopolitan Democracy? | Cross Border Higher Education | Scoop.it

If finance capitalism defeats cosmopolitanism, then the democratic checks and balances on multinational capital disappear and finance capital trumps democracy. National and supranational democracy are the last bastions of public power that can counter the criminalization deeply embedded in the unregulated financial practices that have been embraced by the big banks and insurance companies many politicians see as "too big to fail." The recent LIBOR scandal is only one case in point. Some would argue that the big financial institutions which buy off state regulation, pay obscenely large executive bonuses, encourage speculative growth and engage in fraudulent practices are the true international actors, not states or international agencies like the United Nations.

Massification continues to transform higher education - University World News

Massification continues to transform higher education - University World News | Cross Border Higher Education | Scoop.it

Higher education participation and enrolment has expanded considerably over the past century, and particularly since 1970.

The number of students enrolled in higher education by 2030 is forecast to rise from 99.4 million in 2000 to 414.2 million in 2030 – an increase of 314%.

The University Debt Crisis: It’s Not Just Students Facing a Financial Headache (Guest)

The University Debt Crisis: It’s Not Just Students Facing a Financial Headache (Guest) | Cross Border Higher Education | Scoop.it

While there has been much talk of the extent of the university debt crisis, in recent months it appears to have reached fever pitch. Tyler Kingkade at The Huffington Post points to new analysis carried out by Bain & Company. Their research, conducted in collaboration with Sterling Partners, found that the financial crisis affecting American universities and colleges has a significant reach with a third of the 1,700 higher education institutes surveyed on an “unsustainable financial path” and a further third at risk of joining them.

Twenty-First Century Globalization: A New Development Era

Twenty-First Century Globalization: A New Development Era | Cross Border Higher Education | Scoop.it

Abstract

The article argues that twenty-first century globalization is markedly different from twentieth century globalization and reviews the major changes. The discussion focuses on the portée of these changes for development policies and notes three trends: new industrializing countries in the global South have become drivers of the world economy; the agency of development shifts from metropolitan institutions to developing countries; and the pendulum swings from unfettered market forces to growing state coordination. The upshot of these changes is an era of growing development pluralism, with ramifications for international development cooperation. North–South relations, between industrialized and developing countries have long been of pivotal importance, but in the twenty-first century, the importance of North–South development cooperation is receding. At issue are two ruptures in the development field: the twenty-first century brings part of the developing world outside the grasp of Western institutions and the 2008 crisis brings slowdown and changing political economies in the West. The conclusion reflects on how twenty-first century trends hold up after the 2008 crisis, notes that the rise of emerging societies outlasts the crisis and argues that development pluralism is here to stay.
