I’m an eternal optimist, so I see our shrinking world and globalized economy as a good thing. I understand the position of Bill McKibben about sustaining local economies. But I can’t but think how boring it would be to limit ourselves to our local environment. Traveling, learning about other cultures,Â living and working in different countries – these experiences not only enliven our lives, they help us appreciate and understand people who are different from ourselves.
I find it amazing and exciting that my client – originally from France, then in Japan, now in Thailand, next year who knows -Â isn’t limited by his local environment. His “small world” is now the whole wide world.
