Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
But is this process reversible? The fact that collapsing globalisation would stop the growth of slums is small consolation to those who are already in them if their food security deteriorates.

Though of course, stringing up some of the local "elites" from lampposts might solve part of the distribution problem. I suppose I can see scenarios there that involve only acceptable casualties (though I can also see scenarios that involve quite unacceptable casualties).
