We human beings have the tendency to manufacture idol-words: words to which we attribute a content that is not altogether true but which serves us as an excuse to maintain our privileges intact. For example, parents who are tired of scolding their children in vain, have invented the bogeyman to get their children obey them. The bogeyman is an idol-word with some truth in it (children ought to listen to many things that are ordered them by their parents) but it also serves tired parents to "control" their children. Globalisation has been converted into an idol-word: it responds in part to the truth of a phenomenon and a process; but is also a weapon that is wielded by some to maintain or prolong unjust situations. It is this manipulation precisely that is denounced by Robert M. Solow in the above statement.
