A few days ago, I watched a fantastic TED Talk where Alexander Betts provided a compelling discussion regarding ‘inclusive globalization’. He used Brexit as an example of why some individuals embrace globalization versus fearing it. As British citizen, he realized that had never been to the areas of England where the majority of people voted to leave. He suggested that we might not know our respective countries as much as we think. Citizens without access to education, Internet or travel are not as easily persuaded as others and may harbour mistrust against globalization. We all have a role to play in educating versus fear-mongering.
This was the best 17 minutes I have spent in a while…definitely worth a listen.
