Globalisation: What is it?


In a recent feature article, invited by Politiken as part of a series on “vendepunkter” (“turning points”), I argue that in the long run, globalisation is good. However, in the short term it can threaten cohesion and democratic institutions if the groups that lose out from globalisation are sufficiently large. Hopefully, the Nordic welfare states, with their strong track record of combining markets, international orientation and egalitarian objectives, can show the way by leading. See article in Danish here. Or in English here.  My other recent op-eds can be found here.
