Just a quick post about "How the World Works". It's an interesting blog on Salon.com, an American Arts & Politics web magazine.
The content is free apart from having to watch an ad to get to it. I think this is grand as it's quick enough to get through to.
The material is definitely worth it, the journalist Andrew Leonard spends his time researching globalisation, the BRIC countries, and related issues such as global warming and posts up about books he's read and new research papers and items in the news. For anyone interested in globalisation with a middle of the road viewpoint it's an informative read and a good way to start your day. He cuts through a lot of politically or ideologically biased accounts of globalisation and is a staunch defender of globalisation without ignoring the realities of global inequality and the potential for abuse of some global frameworks.
