Following the Theme of Humanizing Globalization : Justice and Solidarity for Sustainability

War, injustice, violence, self-interest, lack of respect and recognition are part of the daily picture cast by the world media. At the same time, in a less visible way, innumerable actors are working for the Common Good, humbly serving others without expecting any personal return. Sustainable peace is to be pursued because each and every human being is longing for it, knowing perfectly that it is a prerequisite for their own blossoming and for the happiness of their families and communities. Who else but the leaders of the world are responsible for establishing such peace? Who else can establish the spirit of justice and solidarity which is the condition for such sustainable peace?

New York City, October 20 2008. The City University of New York (CUNY) organized and provided the setting for a debate that involved Economics Nobel Prize laureate Joseph Stiglitz, ILD President Hernando de Soto and journalist and anti-globalization activist, Naomi Klein.

During the debate, which revolved around analyzing the causes of the world financial crisis, De Soto stated that Western countries have yet again forgotten the fundamental principles of property, and given way to the uncertain rules of the stock market.
