Stewart Brand on Nils Gilman and "Deviant Globalization"

From Stewart Brand,

“Growing twice as fast as the global legitimate economy is the global hidden economy of trade in drugs, weapons, laundered money, sex workers, illegal immigrants, hostages, human organs, pirated intellectual property, looted archeological artifacts, stolen art, endangered species, illegal waste, and massively sophisticated computer hacking. In some parts of the world, with the decline of state sovereignty and growth of grassroots communication technology, outlaw organizations are taking over statelike duties.

Historian Nils Gilman, a consultant at Global Business Network/Monitor, is co-author of a forthcoming book on the subject.

(Talk next week:) ‘Deviant Globalization,’ Nils Gilman, Cowell Theater, Fort Mason Center, San Francisco, 7pm, Monday, May 3.”
