You know the concept of globalization is not some temporary phenomenon that got great press during the great global boom of 2003-2007 when the first ever BRIC summit happened today and world policy was discussed.

The FUJUG countries, France, US, Japan, UK and Germany will continue to struggle with highly leveraged institutions, whether at the consumer, corporate (particularly the banking sector), and government levels but at the same time will depend highly and hopefully will capitalize on the growth and vitality of faster growing emerging markets.
