Countervailing power and globalisation

This section offers articles and information dealing with forces that stand against the sometimes exploitative and unjust practices of the 'establishment' and corporate elites at local, national and international levels.

We go beyond the current, narrow, official view of globalisation as the free movement of capital, deregulation of trade, privatisation, restriction on patents and intellectual property.  We offer more wide ranging, holistic and diverse perspectives grounded in the concept of elegant power and its countervailance.
