Globalization brings increased levels of: international trade, access to resources, flow of capital, communication, and exchange of knowledge. However, it is also associated with growing inequality, enormous accumulations of wealth in the hands of the few, the collection and (ab)use of personal data. The very cumbersome way of the international community to minimum taxation demonstrates the difficulties to tackle this aspect of globalization.  For the wealthy countries, that minimum taxation will bring additional income for the treasury. But a fair distribution of assets for economically weaker countries needs much more. Our second arrow is geared towards finding solutions towards global inequality and understanding the varied ramification of a globalized (hyper) capitalist economy.
