A Thesis

If globalisation is indeed driven by economics, and economics relies upon perfect information, then globalisation is controlled by information. That is to say, the power of globalisation is controlled by those who can best obtain, process, shape and present information such that it can be used the way it was meant to be: to inform their decisions.

So what determines who can best obtain, process, shape and present information?

Obviously, the level of useful skills related to obtaining, processing, shaping and presenting information.

Where do we learn such skills?

Through a process of education.

At which point, it becomes a recursive sort of phenomenon, all things being equal.

However, education is a double-edged self-limiting sword. It allows one entity to do all those things; it also allows that entity's competitors to do those things and other things. And if one is too educated or too long educated, one pays opportunity costs for not actually using that education.

So how?

Discourse Theory. Ok, that's a small part.
