The post-War global order based on the UN and Bretton Woods institutions may be in crisis, but an alternative is not on the horizon as yet

 

Let’s face it: We are turning into, literally, a species of killjoys. The prime examples of this evolutionary trait are those that comprise the Islamic State or Al Qaeda and their adherents outside the West, or even India for that matter.
