Globalisation rhetoric has its origins in corporate strategy and in many ways is inseparable from free market neo-liberal ideology. Assertions about the inevitability of liberal capitalism, and the impossibility of an alternative, express the hegemony of neo-liberal globalisation. The outcome is an all-pervasive consumer culture and a strait-jacketing of the national state. But socio-economic or corporate globalisation is no monolith. As nationalist ideologies, state structures and inter-state bodies are re-geared to transnational interests, they can become selfdestructive.
