What if both of these talks : decentralization of government and extreme wealth inequality occurred simultaneously?
Chystia Freeman lays out a documented provable fact: Wealth distribution globally has never been more unequal. And, then she shows us that this leads to a small group of people have extraordinary levels of control.
Benjamin Barber argues that central governance is not good for a global world and that what we really need is to remove the central perspective and let smaller, more decentralized leaders govern on a global scale. His particular target for this leadership role are city mayors.
But, what if both of these occurred at the same time? If you removed the nation-state as a ruling force would not that group of the global super rich - and their multi-national corporations move into the power void left behind? If they did what would the outcome be?
