John Tanton: Globalization... And Then What
Tanton Video Interview Interview 2006 - Topic 17
Dr. Tanton discusses the hypothesis whereby national diversification - where each country is dependent on goods from other countries - will prevent war. He discusses the North American Union and asks the ecological question that Garrett Hardin posited: "and then what?". Will this lead to a Continental Union? Do we want to go there?
He discusses NAFTA, which forced Mexican corn farmers off their land. These farmers then migrated to the US. We must think of the consequences to our actions.
