Laurence Brahm is a global activist, international mediator, political columnist and author. He is the leading advocate of a fresh development paradigm – The Himalayan Consensus – an innovative approach to development. The Himalayan Consensus emphasizes empowering people with local pragmatism in place of broad sweeping globalized ideology and theory.
Brahm’s 25 years in Asia have culminated in his latest book, The Anti-Globalization Breakfast Club - Manifesto for a Peaceful Revolution. The book serves as both theoretical introduction and practical global blueprint for culturally sustainable economic development, while the final chapter is a manifesto for a post-Bretton Woods financial reconstruction.
