Interesting Essay about Globalization

Check out this interesting polemic about Globalization from this weekend’s issue of the New York Times Magazine. The author, Parag Khanna, is a senior research fellow in the American Strategy Program of the New America Foundation. He argues that the 21st century will be a multipolar world with the United States, China, and the European Union as the true world players.

Whether you agree or not with his analysis (and I’m not saying I necessarily do), it’s bound to make you think. But who knows what will happen in the coming years, just because they're experts doesn't necessarily mean they're on the mark. On the eve of World War I,many experts said that the fighting wouldn’t last a week.
