Description

A great political debate has emerged over the many unexpected and profound consequences of the rush toward the global economy. The world's political and corporate leaders are restructuring the planet's economy and political arrangements in ways that will affect humans and the environment more than anything since the Industrial Revolution. Global institutions such as GATT, the World Trade Organization, NAFTA, and the World Bank, created with scant public debate or scrutiny, have moved real power away from citizens and nation states to global bureaucracies, with grave results.
"The Case Against the Global Economy" is the first comprehensive point-by-point analysis of the global economy, its premises, and its social and environmental implications. The work gathers forty-three leading economic, agricultural, and environmental experts who charge that free trade and economic globalization are producing exactly the opposite results from what has been promised.
Contributors include William Greider, Jeremy Rifkin, Ralph Nader, Vandana Shiva, David Korten, Wendell Berry, Kirkpatrick Sale, Herman E. Daly, Richard Barnet, Helena Norberg-Hodge, and more than thirty other analysts of the global economy.
