How the right trumped the left on anti-globalization
Does the original anti-globalization movement, pioneered by the political left, have to redefine its efforts now that protectionist policies have been co-opted by a xenophobic hard-right?
Does each side have a completely different vision for alternatives to free trade, or have they finally come together?
The Current hosts a panel discussion on why the anti-globalization message has resonated across the globe, the political spectrum, and asks: who really owns it?
- Maude Barlow, national chair for The Council of Canadians and author of Boiling Point: Government Neglect, Corporate Abuse, and Canada's Water Crisis
- Saadia Zahidi, head of education, gender and employment with the World Economic Forum
- Gary Wolfram, William E. Simon professor of economics and public policy and policy expert with the Heartland Institute
