A New Kind of Globalisation? User-Generated Content and Transparent Production Chains

The Guardian has just published my article titled: “A New Kind of Globalisation? User-Generated Content and Transparent Production Chains.” The article discusses the possibilities for user-generated content and the Internet of Things to reshape how commodities are both produced and consumed.

The article is based on the following academic paper due to be published early next year:

Graham, M. and H. Haarstad. 2011. The Globalization of Transparency: Ethical Consumption in a Web 2.0 World. Information Technologies and International Development

Feel free to email me if you’d like a pre-publication copy.
