I will be very interested to hear the conservative reaction to this Newsweek article entitled “How to Raise a Global Kid”. I predict that what I call the “Nationalistic” wing will not like it one bit. Who knows how much “buzz” (I hate that word) the piece will generate, but if it gets much, I have to assume that some conservatives will be outraged by it.
This is especially significant since one of the advocates of “raising global kids” the article mentions is Jim Rogers, a prominent laissez-faire advocate and investor who endorsed Ron Paul in 2008. A stereotypical conservative as far as economics are concerned, in other words.
Perhaps I am wrong, and reaction to the article will not break down predictably along political lines. But I thought I’d make the prediction, just for the heck of it.
