’s currency of choice and the US market is the world’s largest, richest and most open. For all of these reasons, anti-globalisation efforts single out the United States; anti-globalisation protests are often indistinguishable from anti-American rants. Sixth and finally, there is a global demographic shift taking place. The post-war generation in Europe, Korea, Japan and Australia is leaving centre stage.

Venezuela also is encouraging the search for grassroots alternatives to capitalism by, for example, hosting the World Social Forum, the alternative grouping for anti-globalisation activists, in Caracas in 2006. The core of this Third Worldist trade and diplomatic activity, however, has
