ROOTS OF CONFLICT:
NEW NEW ECONOMICS
Our world has changed, in more dimensions than we yet know or understand. The impact of these events ranges far beyond the tragic deaths, new security measures, or even 'the war on terrorism'. Freedom, fear, culture clash, globalization, religion, terrorism, perceptions, politics, propaganda, and emotion are entangled in the issues we face - and understanding their interrelations as well as their implications is paramount. No matter what actions America takes in response, the decisions we make now will shape the world of tomorrow. The editors of The Global Dialog Project invite you to participate in this debate, and to help make it into a dialog in which we learn from each other, share our grief, and come to new understandings of the world we live in, so that tragedies like this need never happen again.
