International

We live in complicated times. As the world rapidly globalizes, subprime mortgages from Detroit are sold in Dubai. As the global climate rapidly changes, clear-cut forests in Borneo cause floods in Bangladesh. As the global population rises, so does the gap between the wealthiest and the poorest. The 21st century, with all its complexity and interdependence, presents us with both terrible vistas of suffering and terrific opportunities to build a positive future. Comprehending the emerging world, facing its challenges and seizing its opportunities, will require new ways of thinking.
