Gregory Dahl, economist, author on Globalization

Gregory C. Dahl, an economist and former senior official of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), was recently interviewed by First Business Morning News television.

Mr. Dahl just published a new book called One World, One People: How Globalization is Shaping Our Future.

In this two part interview he talks about living in Bulgaria and returning to the States for visits, social aspects of globalization and other topics in his book.

A lot of people find it easier to be against something. That\’s why we have so many anti-globalization demonstrators and so on, than to have a vision of what they want. That\’s part of what my book is about, to ecourage people to think about what kind of world we want.

In the second part of the interview, the host asks less about tainted toothpaste and more about human interactions and smiling salespeople.

Helping others and being of service will gain importance as a source of human happiness

This is the big struggle in the world: finding out how to live together on a shrinking planet.
