(p.256) 9 Conclusion
Foundations of the American Century

Inderjeet Parmar

Columbia University Press

This concluding chapter deduces the recurrence of the idea of the “network” and its diverse effects from the preceding review of foundation programs. Significant globalist consequences of networks include the Kissinger and Salzburg seminars for European elites, and the building of networked academic associations in Asian, African, and Latin American studies—which sometimes prove devastating as well. Some debilitating consequences are prevalent in Nigeria, Indonesia, and Chile, as in each case, the foundation leaders tended to see their societies as real-world laboratories for their technocratic schemes for modernization. Nonetheless, the chapter maintains that these foundation-funded networks have led to the hegemony of a globalist worldview across main political parties and upper state echelons.

Keywords:   network idea, foundation programs, European elites, Asian studies, African studies, Latin American studies, Nigeria, Indonesia, Chile, globalist worldview
