Is the age of globalization coming to an end? If so, what will the future of trade look like?
There was a time, not too long ago, when globalization was a dream being realized: a world in which nations traded freely, with open markets and collaboration across borders. In recent years, however, that vision has become clouded by reality: tariffs, trade wars, protectionism, exploitation of workers, despoiling of the environment. So has the dream of globalization become a nightmare? And what happens next? On this episode, we speak with Professor John Manners-Bell, founder and chief executive officer of the Foundation for Future Supply Chain, and chief executive of Ti Insight. He paints a picture of the future of trade, in an age when the global economy is being shaped by political rather than commercial considerations. So much for 50 years of trade liberalization. Hosted by Bob Bowman, Editor-in-Chief of SupplyChainBrain.
