Are we headed for a new world order? Should we be?

It’s been two years since much of the world’s financial institutions started demonstrating just how flawed they’ve been in their practices and values. Since the major meltdown in September 2008, a lot of what we thought we knew about the institutions we’ve counted on as the backbone of capitalism - banks, Wall Street, public corporations and the federal government - have been proven to not be worthy of our confidence.  Indeed, many of those organizations - GM, Chrysler, Lehman Brothers, Fanny Mae, Freddie Mac, the list is long - are either not there anymore or crippled versions of their former selves.

So what’s next? The global marketplace - and its relationship with government - is experiencing a gut-check right now and one thing is clear: Where we’re going isn’t going to look like where we’ve been.

Recently, on my radio program, The Small Business Advocate Show, I talked with my friend and Brain Trust member, Bill Halal about his ideas on this topic.  Bill is Professor Emeritus of Science, Technology & Innovation at George Washington University, author of Technology’s Promise and founder of the website, Techcast.org.  Be prepared: Bill and I often don’t agree. But he’s one of the smartest guys I know, he is intellectually honest, and I place a high value on his contribution to the debate. Consequently, Bill Halal will always have a place to offer his ideas on my show.

I hope you’ll take a few minutes to listen to our conversation, and be sure to leave your own thoughts. Listen Live! Download, Too!
