As for the local/global issue, I agree with your thesis. I'm wondering
if the point is to get as much commerce and human interaction to the
local level; what we are doing here on sanet is global and yet very
personal and "integrated" on at least one level (although I realize this
is not an economic situation). If the world is going to continue to
globalize then we need to help it do so in the most sustainable way. But
maybe I'm off on a tangent and not addressing your topic!
