Such anxieties are to be found in many national public spheres including that of the United States and also in the academic debates of scholars in the poorer countries. Among the poor and their advocates the anxieties are even more specific: What are the great global agencies of aid and development up to?
Is the World Bank really committed to incorporating social and cultural values into its developmental agenda? Does Northern aid really allow local communities to set their own agendas?

Which parts of the national state are protectors of stakeholding communities and which parts are direct affiliates of global capital?leondumoulin.nl/language/math/her-sweet-surprise.php
Modernity At Large: Cultural Dimensions of Globalization
Can the media ever be turned to the interests of the poor? In the public spheres of many societies there is concern that policy debates occurring around world trade, copyright, environment, science, and technology set the stage for life-and-death decisions for ordinary farmers, vendors, slum-dwellers, merchants, and urban populations.
And running through these debates is the sense that social exclusion is ever more tied to epistemological exclusion and concern that the discourses of expertise that are setting the rules for global transactions, even in the progressive parts of the international system, have left ordinary people outside and behind.
The discourse of globalization is itself growing dangerously dispersed, with the language of epistemic communities, the discourse of states and inter-state fora, and the everyday understanding of global forces by the poor growing steadily apart. There is thus a double apartheid evolving.

Thus the first form of this apartheid is the growing divorce between these debates and those that characterise vernacular discourses about the global, worldwide, that are typically concerned with how to plausibly protect cultural [End Page 2] autonomy and economic survival in some local, national, or regional sphere in the era of "reform" and "openness.
