The largest trade agreement ever – the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) – starts today. Globalization continues apace disrupting local, national and regional economies, expanding the precariat, neutering local community control, wiping out self-reliance & self-sufficiency knowledge and skill sets, and creating unsustainable dependencies for essential goods and services. The real tragedy of this economistic zombie death march however is what climate chaos impacts will do over time. As supply chains fail, states and their populations will reel in crisis. What is needed is localization, the opposite of globalization.
