The election of Donald Trump is not just a signal that America is shifting away from globalism, the entire world seems to be souring to the idea.
The latest example is French presidential nominee François Fillon who is being described as a Margaret Thatcher-style conservative. His election would mean a rejection of socialist rule in France and evidence the French people are tired of collectivist policies.
But the move way from globalism comes with a lot of negatives. Not everything about global cooperation is bad. Truly free trade, freedom of movement and economic cooperation are all benefits of globalization. Unfortunately, men like Donald Trump brings with him a desire to restrict these types of cooperation for a much more protectionist economic policy.
On the show today I want to talk in detail about the changes happening around the world. We are certainly living in interesting times, and I would be lying if I said I wasn't excited about the history we're living through right now.
