paralleling this excerpt from a long essay by Phil Agre

  The global integration of the economy is ... commonly held to
  decentralize political power by preventing governments from taking
  actions that can be reversed through cross-border arbitrage. But
  political power is becoming centralized in equally important ways:
  the power of national governments is not so much disappearing as
  shifting to a haphazard collection of undemocratic and nontransparent
  global treaty organizations, and the power to influence these
  organizations is likewise concentrating in the ever-fewer global
  firms.  These observations are not pleasant or fashionable, but
  they are nonetheless true.
