The new global order are undergoing unprecedented changes. The world is sleepwalking towards a deep slump in a market economy. As a result, we have today global inequality and dramatic changes in the political landscape.
We do not know yet what will occur instead of a market economy, but we can assume as follows:
1) There will be hegemonic countries with an ability to concentrate all resources (finance, technology, and human)
2) There will be "middle class" satellite countries
3) There will be countries with nothing
Such social inequality will not lead to mass starvation. However, it is extremely difficult to bridge this gap between leaders and outsiders.
