Since the 1950s, global security and economic interests have been pursued largely by promoting "globalism", institutions seeking the increasingly frictionless flow of labor, goods and capital. The recent emergence of trade wars, national security considerations impacting private companies and public markets combined with rising pressure on immigration point to a new environment of "turning inwards." Have we reached "Peak Globalism?" If so, what is the potential impact to the "man on the street" from Kansas to Kumamoto?
