PredicTED: The Future of Borders
WHY YOU SHOULD CARE
Because we are the world.
By Nat Roe
We’re in a strange place, world-historically speaking. On the one hand are arrayed the seemingly inexorable forces of globalization: trade linkages, immigration and emigration, cross-cultural pollination and, of course, the Internet. On the other? The rise of nationalism, which one can see vividly in the rise of Donald J. Trump and the fraying of the European Union.
Is our world spinning toward fragmentation, nation-states and impregnable walls at borders? Not according to the thinkers in this latest edition of PredicTED, a collaboration between TED and OZY.
