The case against the global economy :and for a turn toward the localby Jerry Mander
Synopses & Reviews
Public discussions of NAFTA and GATT have failed to adequately describe the profound changes in the world economy that are being formulated or to critically examine the theories behind them. This book gathers more than 40 economic, agricultural, and environmental experts to convey a complete picture of how globalization will affect our lives.
Book News Annotation:
Forty-three essays explain the controversial effects of globalization and present an array of alternatives by examining such topics as the pressure to modernize and globalize, global economy and the Third World, homogenization of education and global culture, the environment, sustainable growth, free trade, neo-development, corporate rule, electronic money, local interdependence, conserving communities, and bioregionalism.
