Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair emphasized Tuesday that the developed nations of the world leave developing countries behind at their own peril. In a speech at Seton Hall University in South Orange, Blair said the implosion of old economic models and markets offers an opportunity to create a new, more inclusive global economic architecture. "'Global community' is a cliche, because it's true," Blair said. "People must come together, not just in traditional alliances, but ones that bring together the developed and developing world. These types of alliances will be different, broader and united by a shared purpose." Speaking to students who filled the gymnasium at the Catholic university, Blair said world leaders need to reform organizations like the United Nations Security Council and the G8 to be more representative of the changing global balance of power.
