The Current Discussion:PostGlobal celebrates its second birthday this week. Is there a growing global agenda -- that is, an agenda of issues being discussed that affects the world rather than individual countries? Or are local concerns still paramount?
The answer is yes, to both questions: Yes, there is a growing global agenda, and yes, there are local concerns in each country. That is the complexity of our era. Globalization, amazing new possibilities for communication, and intense capital flows have increased the ties between countries, but each nation still has its own challenges, realities, and priorities.
