The Brit has it right. Cameron delivers warning on globalisation
The Conservative party leader, David Cameron, today said immigrants were bearing the brunt of the blame for the problems caused by globalisation.
In his first major speech on the world economy, delivered on the second day of his visit to India, Mr Cameron highlighted the costs, as well as the benefits, of the free market.
“We can’t just celebrate the benefits of globalisation,” he said. “We must also be honest about its costs, because the alternative is that people project their fears and anxieties on to other ethnic groups or other countries.
He said the “transforming” force of globalisation was not always benign, warning that many people were left behind by the process.
“For example, sometimes blame is placed on immigrants who are thought to drive down the wages of those with fewer skills. But globalisation drives down those wages even without immigration.” He said the “transforming” force of globalisation was not always benign, warning that many people were left behind by the process.
School, having just begun, is not yet wiping my face in it’s ass; I am preparing for the certainty of that event so I will be scarce.
If I’m not around this week blame it on the search for the signatures of illusive professors.
