Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
As Bruce is fond of pointing out, there is no such thing as "Globalization."

There is a mix of policies for governing international trade and tribute. And there is a number of technologies to mediate international trade and tribute.

But the policy mix governing international trade and tribute is not in any important way interdependent, nor dependent in any straightforward way on the technology involved.

"Financialization" is just a polysyllabic euphemism for "looting."
