Ill-effects of globalisation

This is with reference to, "Economics of demonstrations against globalisation" (Business Line, September 9th). In the famous "Boiled frog experiment" conducted by the psychologists, a frog that was placed in a pot of room temperature water did not attempt to jump out of the pot as the temperature was slowly raised.

This applies well to many of the developing and least developed countries that have failed to foresee and protest against ill-effects of globalisation, which was introduced slowly. The situation is now out of hand and the so-called protectors have to set themselves ready to fact.

C. Ramesh,

Keeramangalam (TN)
