Time magazine: The case for optimism, by Bill Clinton
In an article in Time magazine, former United States president Bill Clinton writes: “Our world is more interdependent than ever. Borders have become more like nets than walls, and while this means that wealth, ideas, information and talent can move freely around the globe, so can the negative forces shaping our shared fates.
“The financial crisis that started in the US and swept the globe was further proof that – for better and for worse – we can’t escape one another.”
He also writes: “But I firmly believe that progress changes consciousness, and when you change people’s consciousness, then their awareness of what is possible changes as well – a virtuous circle.
