To accomplish this, people have to reimagine the dimensions of their own
world, to free themselves of buried cultural and racial assumptions
inherited from the colonial past. On both ends of the global economy --
old and new, rich and poor -- people must be able to envision an all
encompassing prosperity, a system that nourishes both realms mutually
rather than exploiting each other's economic weaknesses. 

But the largest barrier to a shared prosperity is neither physical nor
economic, but the limitations imposed by old ideas, the mental boundaries
drawn around what people believe is possible. (wg)
