Summary
International organisations have not kept pace with global challenges. The UN, World Bank and other multilateral institutions were set up to deal with post-World War 2 crisis. Today, the world is far smaller, crowded with 4.5 billion more people than sixty years ago, and much more connected, with the rapid rise in flows of information, people, goods, and services across borders. We are all more affected than ever by what happens elsewhere
