Slow Money activist Marco Vangelisti anticipates that global corporate hegemony is in a decline that is not yet widely apparent, but could come with unexpected quickness.

As for the rise of localism, Janelle Orsi predicts it will grow and endure, because it is being adopted voluntarily, not externally imposed.
