In the introduction the following section stand out in my mind: “”¦.. ..that world-integration is impelled by the divine order even when led by greedy trans-nationals trying to dominate the world ”¦.. be prepared to accept world integration as a normal tendency that must eventually end up in the full political and economic integration of the planet. This does not mean that everything is fine with the integration process: As with any other process involving human actions, world-integration is tainted with sin and evil.” I share the writer’s sentiments and would add that since world-integration and globalisation are inevitable consequences of economic development, as Christians our responsibility is to ensure that the process is equitable, sustainable and in conformity with the teachings of Christ. The players in the globalisation process are none other than ourselves as owners, employers, employees and clients of the trans-nationals spearheading the process. I have come to the conclusion, and this is purely personal, that in a country like Ghana which, since independence in 1957, has seen every shade and manner of political ideology, dictatorships and democracies: “The interests of global trans-nationals are ironically contributing to political stability. With this stability civil society through its organisations and associations has the opportunity to compel government to respond to the needs of its citizens and thus address burning issues such as poverty, unemployment and pollution.” I hold the view that in the African context political stability, good governance and respect for human rights must be an integral aspect of García’s NF. This is due to the fact that a stable environment is a productive environment.
