Keith Rankin: Anti-globalisation Brigade Get It Wrong

- I am frustrated and bemused by the global anti-globalisation protest movement. It is very much a manifestation of the thing it purports to protest against. Further, the events that it seeks to disrupt are more manifestations of the old nationalist world order than of globalism. See...
