With the passage of the Brexit Referendum and Donald Trump in the role of U.S. President, the globalists are publicly promoting Xi Jinping (China) and Merkel (Germany) for leadership of the globalization campaign.
Angela Merkal may be on her way out if she fails to be re-elected.
In my opinion, neither Angela Merkel nor Xi Jinping can overcome the popular anti-globalist trend in the West.
De-centralization is a grassroots trend that is revealed in both nationalism and promoting local economies and entrepreneurship.
Many national elections are scheduled for 2017, politicians campaigning for globalization will face strong popular opposition.
Geopolitics is attempting to control the narrative with overly simplistic fear mongering labels such as Populism, Nationalism, Protectionists, and Radicals.
Expect the 2017 propaganda to ratchet up in the mass media with the G20 and BRICS to be in prominent headlines for economic development and trade.
I ask we keep a watchful eye for the growth of Eastern consortiums such as the AIIB, EEU, SCO, and BRICS; projects and membership growth is a signal revealing globalist plans. ~Ron
China’s president launched a robust defence of globalisation and free trade on Tuesday, drawing a line between himself and Donald Trump just three days before the US president-elect’s inaugural address in Washington.”The problems troubling the world are not caused by globalisation,” Xi Jinping said in an address at the World Economic Forum in Davos. “They are not the inevitable outcome of globalisation.”
The spectacle of a Chinese Communist party leader in the spiritual home of capitalism defending the liberal economic order against the dangers of protectionism from a new US president underscored the upheaval in global affairs brought about by the election of Donald Trump.
“Countries should view their own interest in the broader context and refrain from pursuing their own interests at the expense of others,” Mr Xi said without mentioning Mr Trump by name. “We should not retreat into the harbour whenever we encounter a storm or we will never reach the opposite shore.” –Financial Times
Chinese President Xi Jinping is treading on dangerous ground. In his speech before the World Economic Forum’s annual conclave of political and economic luminaries in Davos, Xi set out to establish himself as the standard-bearer for globalization and China as a beneficiary from globalization in the past and a leader in the future. Many observers have been quick to support China’s claim to a leadership position, not only because China wants the job but also because the United States appears not to. –The Myth of Chinese Leadership by Elizabeth C.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel is steering clear of the World Economic Forum in Davos, a meeting expected to be dominated by debate over the looming presidency of Donald Trump and rising public anger with elites and globalization.
Merkel has been a regular at the annual gathering of political leaders, CEOs and celebrities, traveling to the snowy resort in the Swiss Alps seven times since becoming chancellor in 2005. Reuters
