In this final chapter, I'll return to the theme with which this book began. I'll discuss the construction of a global labournet and the next International.
I'll begin by discussing the good news (and the bad) about the emerging global labournet. The bad news is that there is no real global labournet. The good news is that serious efforts are being made by trade unionists and others to overcome all the obstacles standing in the way.
Some fascinating proposals are being made for the next few years -- including online company councils and an international labour university -- and we'll look at each of these. Then I'll "push the envelope" and go further, with a handful of radical proposals for the labour movement to consider in the years ahead.
