In Episode Two of ‘A World on the Brink’ – Globalization and its Discontents, Dee Smith examines globalization and its impact, bringing nearly a billion people out of poverty, but not without significant drawbacks. In this episode, we attempt to place globalization in context: as both progenitor and part of larger global changes that include automation, the rise of identity politics, economic contagion, and phenomena like Brexit. Contributors discuss the pros and cons of globalization in the context of the politics of nostalgia, populist movements, and attempts to recreate previous political and social structures. We also examine the largely unanswered questions that face us all, as opposing economic and social trends continue to gather strength. https://www.realvision.com/world-brink-disclaimer/
