Pages 8

Each country has a unique combination of culture, geography and population requiring an appropriate policy framework. Differences are inevitable. This allows us to take pleasure in the breadth and variety of human culture, but, more importantly, variety ensures macro political and economic stability. Differences facilitate adaptation at the global level. Instead of global hegemony, the world needs a rich variety of cultures, societies and economies.
