Most Popular Articles of 2007
December 14, 2007
China… Trade… Food. These are the themes that emerge from our most popular articles for 2007, listed below by month.
It makes sense that these issues would top the list because they are some of the biggest concerns in the global economy today. They also intersect in one of the biggest stories of the year: the scandal surrounding China's food trade and the world's response. China's trade partners were able to do something that its own consumers couldn't accomplish for years—they put pressure on that country to boost scrutiny of its food exports for the benefit of everyone, including the Chinese consumer.
Globalization is a complex, tangled yarn, with winners and losers on every strand. We have had the pleasure of bringing that story to you, our rapidly growing readership, through the lens of ethics and innovation. This year, we also received much kudos. For instance, Google recently included us as a source for Google News and deemed one of our blogs a "blog of note."
We are pleased to report that nearly all of the content on this list is original. We have tried to give back to our community by publishing our original content under a Creative Commons license, allowing it to be shared widely.
