Alternatives to Economic Globalization: A Better World Is Possible

Alternatives to Economic Globalization: A Better World Is Possible Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The culmination of a five-year project by the International Forum on Globalization (IFG), this book presents an inspiring plan for moving toward more sustainable, humanistic models of economic prosperity with an emphasis on citizen democracies, local self-sufficiency, and ecological health. Areas of discussion include the ten core requirements for democratic societies as well as alternative systems of energy, agriculture, and manufacturing. Written by a premier group of 18 thinkers from around the world and edited by best-selling authors John Cavanagh and Jerry Mander, this revised and expanded edition represents the official consensus of the living democracy movement. Delving into the most compelling alternatives to globalization thus far, it features a chart on the effects of globalization and three entirely new chapters on the global balance of power, the media, and what ordinary people can do about globalization.

Book News Annotation:

The first edition of this book spelled out why citizens around the world should oppose corporate globalization and provided a policy road map away from globalization towards a more equitable society. This second edition is updated to explain how the war on terror and other events of the past three years are related to globalization. Assembling contributors from various policy study and advocacy groups, Cavanagh (Institute for Policy Studies) and Mander (International Forum on Globalization) add new chapters on the global balance of power, the outsourcing of high-paying American jobs, and what ordinary citizens can do to stem the tide of corporate globalization. Twenty pages of listings of related organizations are included.
