WHO'S IN CONTROL? -- NATION STATE OR GLOBAL CORPORATIONS?
 "By many measures, corporations are more central players in global affairs than nations," writes Benjamin Barber in Jihad vs McWorld. "We call them multinational but they are more accurately understood as postnational, transnational or even anti-national. For they abjure the very idea of nations or any other parochialism that limits them in time or space." "We are in government but not in power," said Lula's close aide, Dominican friar Frei Betto. "Power today is global power, the power of the big companies, the power of financial capital." http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/jun/02/control-nation-states-corporations-autonomy-neoliberalism

The annual global bill for obesity for lost productivity and treating conditions like diabetes, heart disease and certain cancers is $2 trillion.

Local Economies vs Global Economies - Food is Not just a Commodity If we have a ravished earth there is no economy.   Globalization is taking us back to the most primitive of economies.  It is time to readjust our priorities.  We have to move from economies that are killing us, democracies that are dying, we need to move to living democracies, local living economies before too much is destroyed.
