Watch out for deglobalization

For a number of years it seemed a tacit agreement existed between China and the mainly Western nations interested in doing business in that vast and crucial market. The foreigners would say little about the restricted freedoms in China or the lack of flexibility in the yuan. They would be allowed to do business.

That is now breaking down. The Google Inc. standoff, prompted by a cyberattack on the company, and the trial of Rio Tinto employees are the bright-light examples. Another issue will arise next month when the U.S. administration has to decide whether or not to characterize China as a currency manipulator.

Location based apps are yet another stab into the belly of globalism. How much more natural for people to pull out a netbook and find, not something 300 mile away or 3000 miles away, but something they can walk, bike or drive to and participate in NOW.
