    ..are convinced that globalism is the best thing ever. Unregulated capitalism and competition are just the only way anything can work.

    Just look at the all-important Dow. Record territory already..

        I think it's one of the worst "developments" in the last 50 years.

          I would if I knew who "them," were.  I think what probably happened is that those with the resources and power have misused them.  It probably began as a good idea to open up capitalism in oppressed countries, but some saw it as an opportunity to take advantage and thus we have the big mess we have today.  Regulation and controlling the amount of loss jobs from one country to another probably would have made it more successful, but when greed and deregulation get involved it screws things up.
