What is a Visionist?

"A visionist is an artist, a creator or an individual that sees beyond what is visible to the eyes and brains of human beings. Visionists are thinkers, they are the recognisable brains in soociety, but most times they are seen as absurd, "nerds" and misfits – they just don't fit into the societies. They are people with great dreams and minds."

Globalization: The World "in a Swivet"

Dear readers,
I received a return email from Mexico City today from fellow Latin Americanist, George Grayson of William and Mary College, telling me he is "in a swivet" and too busy to read something I sent him. I mentioned the word "swivet, " which I had never heard before, to a fellow political science instructor at TCC, who said, "Excellent word, describes the state of business in the world today." I could not agree more.
Here is another presentation, with a long historical perspective, on Globalization from a respected academic institution: Yale University 's Center for the Study of Globalization, that might clarify it for some who are still asking, "what is this Globalony all about?"
