We discussed a mtg on a "post-American" 21st century. I couldn't find one I liked for us. So, let's do a related topic: The future of globalization itself. We've never done it specifically. Please read one of these 2 books. #1 is new, hardback, but a brilliant author. #2 is a more optimistic take by Jeff Sachs + very short.
