Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think one issue is that we have globalisation of capital, investment, trade and finance, but with no corresponding globalisation of regulation, taxation, surveillance, policing, democratic accountability, citizenship, freedom of movement.

ordinary people can get shot for trying to cross borders that money and investment and corporate property can cross with ease at top speed in any direction.  we have globalised business without globalised governance, globalised capital and management without a globalised labour movement, etc.

The difference between theory and practise in practise ...
