even as the Counsel

even as the Counsel to the Defendant also pleaded for ‘Out of Court’ settlement.S. President Donald Trump may be pushing what increasingly resembles a traditional Republican agenda but polls show that his supporters are still eager for deeper disruption Trump’s embrace of Turkey’s Recep Tayyip Erdogan Egypt’s Abdul Fattah al-Sisi and the Philippines’ Rodrigo Duterte suggests a lasting affinity with aggressive strongmen His chief adviser and nationalist muse Stephen Bannon may be under fire but he’s still there The Trump presidency has only just begun In short nationalism is alive and well partly because the problems that provoked it are still with us Growing numbers of people in the world’s wealthiest countries still fear that globalization serves only elites who care nothing about nations and borders Moderate politicians still offer few effective solutions Now here’s the really bad news: an even larger crisis is coming The popular fury convulsing Europe and the US may well spill over into the rest of the world Just as the financial crisis which began in the West produced rumbling aftershocks around the globe so the nationalist explosion will rattle the politics of countries on every continent Leaders in China India Brazil and others will face unprecedented challenges in managing this threat The emergence of a truly global middle class is one of history’s great success stories: more than a billion people have been lifted out of poverty literacy rates have surged and access to education and health care is now widespread But this vast rising tide did not lift all boats and those left behind are not happy The headlines have all been about reaction in the West where globalized trade has hit manufacturing and technological changes have transformed the workplace Jobs are being eliminated and the world’s original middle classes are shrinking The native-born resent immigrants seeking work and in Europe the debt crisis plunged some countries into austerity and others into stagnation just as the surge of Middle Eastern refugees fed fears of crime terrorism and loss of national identity Now some of the same storms are making landfall in the developing world where governments and institutions are far less equipped to handle the stress We’ve already seen the first chapter of this narrative with the quakes that have rocked the Arab world over the past seven years Along with a crisis of governance inequality and connectivity have played leading roles in these dramas as citizens become both better aware of how far they’re falling behind and more able to organize protests about it The Gini coefficient a statistical measure of income inequality within countries finds that the gap between rich and poor is moderately high in places like Russia Turkey and Indonesia and yawning in China Brazil Mexico and Saudi Arabia As lower-income citizens in these countries become more aware of what they’re missing–decent housing education work opportunities health care and protection from crime in particular–the risk of unrest will rise We’ve already seen previews of this in Brazil and Turkey where millions of angry people have filled city streets to protest corruption abuse of power and lousy public services in recent years What happens when technological change in the workplace guts the new middle classes in developing countries like China and India where government is held more directly accountable for the creation of jobs What about Iran and Saudi Arabia countries with fast-expanding populations of young people with fewer jobs created In the Middle East over 40% of the population is under 25 Can economies there create enough jobs to sustain them For hundreds of millions of people across the developing world a slide back into poverty is a fear that’s easy to visualize Then there is the question of identity politics Globalization doesn’t move just goods and services It moves people feeding public anxiety by shifting the racial ethnic linguistic and religious makeup of communities sometimes abruptly Trump rose to power in part by leveraging fears about immigrants’ stealing American jobs Immigration was also at the heart of the Brexit vote Developing countries don’t have to worry about waves of migrants knocking at the door in search of a better life at least not yet But in many of these countries “they” are already inside or live just next door Even in countries with unchallenged boundaries racial ethnic tribal religious and linguistic differences can become fault lines when technological change creates economic turmoil Political opportunism is universal In the West nationalist politicians have seized the opportunity created by popular anger to boost their influence But the structures that create stability in the West have proved to be resilient Trump is still discovering the meaning of checks and balances And majority rule kept Le Pen and Wilders out of power What happens in countries where these institutions are weaker and have less popular legitimacy Expect similar figures to emerge–but with results that are even harder to predict Nationalists rise to power by convincing citizens that they can defend “the people” against a predatory elite and the favored groups they protect But the hated “them” isn’t always a domestic enemy or someone still hoping to come inside If the leaders of Turkey Iran Saudi Arabia Egypt Russia and China can’t help their citizens compete in a 21st century globalized economy where might they look for culprits In the past governments have steered public anger toward other countries which can easily turn into military conflagrations Others will respond to nationalist pressures by building walls Some of these barriers will be between the state and their subjects–China’s government has taken steps to create a “social-credit system” a sort of credit rating based on economic and social behavior that determines the opportunities available to a person Beijing claims the plan is intended to create a harmonious society and a “culture of sincerity” but it might also serve as a barrier between the ruling party and angry citizens In India the government has gathered biometric information on more than 900 million of its citizens for its controversial national identity-card program There’s no telling how future governments will decide to use this great trove of data; the potential for surveillance is enormous Information if tightly controlled can divide The Russian state dominates the television channels and websites from which the vast majority of citizens get their news Since last July’s failed coup Turkey’s Erdogan has used a state of emergency in his country to tighten media controls and punish outlets critical of his government Then there’s the assault on information itself The fake news that appeared on the Internet during the US presidential election has long been standard fare in less open societies These kinds of barriers may be the future in a world that was until recently described as increasingly borderless People will gravitate toward online enclaves of information and ideas creating virtual walls between left and right urban and rural different ethnic and religious groups the religious and the nonreligious Between “us” and “them” Protests like this International Workers’ Day demonstration in New York City on May 1 will become more common around the globe Spencer Platt—Getty Images How can we bridge the gap Some governments are experimenting with solutions Finland is addressing the changing workplace with a concept called guaranteed basic income As part of a trial it is sending monthly tax-free payments of about $600 to 2000 unemployed citizens chosen at random The recipients will continue to receive the payments even if they find work The assumption behind the project is that future work is far more likely to be part time or self-employment–and that the unemployed are reluctant to take these sorts of jobs if they lose welfare benefits as a result The opportunity to make more money in part-time jobs it is hoped will attract people receiving the guaranteed basic income and their spending power will stimulate growth Welfare bureaucracies will be cut because there will be no need to maintain complicated databases to track the continuing eligibility of participants Local governments in Canada the Netherlands Scotland and Oakland Calif, according to testimony by State College Police Detective Dave Scicchitano," said an official at the opposition Socialist Party. however, asking him to bring the $1.
