Unscramble the Blue Letters

Now I find that when we talk about globalization, the end of globalization and the new world odrer, we spend far too much time dssisuicng America, Europe and China, and not enough time on the many eictinxg things happening in fast-growing economies, from Ethiopia, Nigeria, to Indonesia, Bangladesh, Mexico and Brazil. And in the new world order, the question for these countries is what model to follow and what alliances to build. And many of them during the peirod of giailoztoabln had become used to being told what to do by the lkies of the IMF, the International Monetary Fund. But the age of condescension is now over, so the tailgnbe opportunity in a less uniform, more value-driven world for these countries is that they have much greater choice in the path to follow, and albgruay greater pressure to get it right.

Original Text

Now I find that when we talk about globalization, the end of globalization and the new world order, we spend far too much time discussing America, Europe and China, and not enough time on the many exciting things happening in fast-growing economies, from Ethiopia, Nigeria, to Indonesia, Bangladesh, Mexico and Brazil. And in the new world order, the question for these countries is what model to follow and what alliances to build. And many of them during the period of globalization had become used to being told what to do by the likes of the IMF, the International Monetary Fund. But the age of condescension is now over, so the tangible opportunity in a less uniform, more value-driven world for these countries is that they have much greater choice in the path to follow, and arguably greater pressure to get it right.
