“In The Unfinished Global Revolution former United Nations Deputy Secretary General Mark Malloch-Brown diagnoses the central global predicament of the 21st century: as we’ve become more integrated, we’ve also become less governed. Domestic problems facing individual nations—from unemployment to environmental distress—increasingly arise from international roots. As national politicians lose control to impersonal global forces they’ll be forced to become more effective participants in such international mechanisms as the United Nations, which may offer the only viable solutions. Meanwhile, ad hoc arrangements between NGOs, civil society, and the private sector are more and more often filling the gap created by the failures of individual governments. In the wake of the worldwide economic crisis of 2008, many have been forced to acknowledge that a global economy needs global institutions to govern it. And what’s true for finance, Malloch-Brown argues, is surely true for public health, poverty, and climate change. The Unfinished Global Revolution is a call to embrace more powerful international institutions as well as the values needed to underpin a truly globalist agenda: the rule of law, human rights, and opportunity for all.” Book official press release
Associated Press, 2 Aug 2017: “The turnout figures in Venezuela’s Constituent Assembly election were “tampered with”, the director of a company that provides electoral support services to the country said on Tuesday. Speaking in London, Antonio Mugica, the CEO and Director of Smartmatic, said the company estimated “the difference between the actual participation and the one announced by the authorities is at least one million votes” Smartmatic was a company created by Venezuelans in Caracas providing electronic voting machines to the late President Hugo Chavez. In recent years it has branched out to provide the same services to countries across the world, while continuing to provide support for elections in Venezuela. Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro called the vote for the constitutional assembly in May after weeks of protests fed by anger at his government over food shortages, triple-digit inflation and high crime. Many people accuse the ruling party of corruption and mismanagement. Tensions have escalated since government-allied electoral authorities said more than eight million people voted on Sunday, a turnout figure that was disputed by the opposition and independent analysts and condemned by many nations in the region and beyond.”
