In The Weightless Society, Charles Leadbeater explains:

Globalization is good. Through global trade in products and services, people learn and exchange ideas that drive economic growth. If we turn our backs on the global economy, we turn our backs on the most vital force: the accelerating spread of knowledge and ideas. A thriving knowledge society must be cosmopolitan and open; it must reward talent and creativity; invest in people and education. Innovation and knowledge creation thrive in cultures that are democratic and dissenting; open to new ideas from unusual sources; in which authority and elites are constantly questioned and challenged.
