We are standing at a crossroads of global policy and governance, say contributors to Making It magazine
VIENNA, 7 September 2011 – Global challenges require a multi-polar response, according to authors writing in the latest issue of the magazine Making It: Industry for Development, published by UNIDO.
Popular perceptions of globalization are getting more and more polarized between those who see it as a source of freedom and new opportunities, and those who associate it with rising inequality and injustice. The new issue of Making It: Industry for Development offers a selection of some of the best contributions to this growing debate.
These include the keynote article by Professor Dani Rodrik, in which he embarks on a fascinating journey into the globalization paradox, and a candid interview with former UN Deputy Secretary-General, Mark Malloch Brown, in which he gives his views on how to stay “one step ahead of failure’’ during “a century of continuous change and likely drastic upheaval”.
Aside from articles addressing the main theme, there are also discursive contributions that question mainstream economists’ approaches, debate the pros and cons of nuclear power, and look at the economic progress of Bangladesh.
The Making It website – www.makingitmagazine.net – contains not only all the content of the print versions but other original articles and features, as well.
