Hughesair (Inflection Point)

Retired physician and air taxi operator, science writer and part time assistant professor, these editorials cover a wide range of topics. Mostly non political, mostly true, I write more from a lifetime of experience and from research, more science than convention. Subjects cover medicine, Alaska aviation, economics, technology and an occasional book review. Globalization or Democracy documents the historical roots of Oligarchy, the road to colonialism and tyranny

Globalization or Democracy

  This book speaks of post Vietnam leaders’ desire for a more cooperative global world order. Discouraged by war, they hoped that globalism and free trade - at any price - would discourage nationalism and end wars. This strategy became the central academic, economic and foreign-policy priority for the next fifty years. What could possibly have gone wrong? And tragically it had. Globalization or Democracy documents the complex concatenations  -both economic and political - with their deleterious outcomes.
