  1. Why do you think the reassertion of a nation’s sovereignty is a fruitless cause? It seems pretty important to me. And given the history since the financial crisis, notably the significant expansion in income and wealth inequality seen in the developed markets, it seems a natural response would be for those people who have lagged in the period want to reassert themselves. The best way to do that is via reassertion of their own sovereignty. Does it really make sense that Portugal and Poland are in more than a trading club?

    • this will be ruinous for Catalonia. these pretensions to nationalism and faux populism are the worst kind of bullshit. there is no rolling back the clock on global integration. it’s a road to the dark ages. Jack Ma is exactly right to say that the world’s problems largely stem for not enough integration. “sovereignty” is crap. we’re a planet of people, not nation states. if we don’t come to terms with that, we won’t make it.
