Harold James


On his book The Creation and Destruction of Value: The Globalization Cycle

Cover Interview of November 08, 2009

Editor’s note

Originally, this interview ran on the Rorotoko cover page under the headline

“The globalization cycle will start again, but it will not start up immediately.”

We highlighted two quotes.

On the first page:

“The anti-globalization protest movement around the turn of the century was not analogous to the anti-system movements on the left and right that marked the interwar era, those of communists and fascists.”

On the second:

“Art is not the only way of revealing supposed financial skill: it might also be a taste in fine wines, or skill at card games.”
