The big tipping point The social question at global scale - by J-M Severino et O. Ray[Reading report] by Marie Baranger

2014-02-28

Marie Baranger graduated from the ESCP Europe Business School in 2014. She has an experience in the third sector, having worked for several organizations from the social and solidarity economy before, and having launched her own research project in 2012, after a year of preparation, upon microinsurance in Latin America. After having studied in the Alternative Management specialization program, Marie finishes her academic career with a Master in environmental management from Agro Paris Tech and an internship for the French Fund for Global Environment, in the French Development Agency (AFD).

Jean-Michel Severino and Olivier Ray release a comprehensive analysis of the new global arrangement. Through new changemakers’ and anonymous – though representative of the new economic and social order –  stakeholders’ portraits, the authors highlight the characteristics of the “globeconomy” and its social consequences, should they be positive or negative. The 21st century is taking place, epitomized by an inversion of the poles and the advent of the South as the new center for economic and demographic growth, and on which rely the new future stakes of the planet. Taking into account the components of this new global arrangement, the authors offer creative solutions for a viable planet from economic, environmental and social points of view, in order to build a new globalization
