“The G7 represents the international order commitment to free trade. It has been spectacularly ineffective in addressing global poverty, inequality and climate change.” This roughly edited quote is closest to my belief about global trade; that its dependence upon fossil fuels is a threat to the world’s ecosystems on which all life depends and that it exploits 3rd World subsistence living labor. It also benefits the largest manufacturers of mass produced goods to the detriment of small and medium-scale economies which require the least fuel/energy for manufacturing and distribution. The global economy should be minimized, that is, the essential commodities which cannot be produced within a state or nation can remain a product of global trade. Every nation ought develop an economy that can be sustained without global trade. Otherwise, globalization only becomes more and more a colonial system of control with in-state military (extremists) more loyal to international business interests (paychecks) than to country. Lastly I’ll add that air travel can be considered a part of the global economy, but it’s a luxury, not a necessity, no matter how tourism and “business-vacation” industry interests would have us believe otherwise. If and when any major disruption of oil supply occurs, air travel will be curtailed first. We’d best prepare for this eventuality. It may be what the ruling class international order is actually plotting as a means of genocidal population control. Trump’s fake movie trailer hinted that this was their motivation.
