When globalisation gets local: winners and losers

Left-behind places are lending themselves increasingly to the forces of populism and political disintegration, writes Riccardo Crescenzi.

As a result, it is now impossible to understand economic opportunities, innovation and development without one central concept: CONNECTIVITY.
