Hi David:

Thanks for picking up on that.  I had noticed it as well.  It is
indeed - as you say - odd for an "interdisciplinary" journal
(on globalization of all things!) not to include economics.
I do not think, though, that this omission was accidental:
rather, it reflects a perspective among some academics in
the anti-globalization movement.    In an effort not to
crudely reduce globalization to its economic aspects alone,
they have adoped an equally one-sided but opposing
perspective.  I agree that crude political economy can

In solidarity, Jerry
