Publisher Comments:

The Bush Agenda is the first book to expose the Bush Administration's radical economic agenda for global domination, a plan more extreme, unilateral and audacious than any of his predecessors, a plan that has created the greatest level of violent opposition to America and Americans in recent history.

The Bush Agenda: Invading the World, One Economy at a Time explores the Bush Administration's plan to invade the world through a corporate globalization agenda, first in Iraq, then the Middle East with the proposed U.S.-Middle East Free Trade Area, and ultimately as a cornerstone to the global Bush Doctrine of Pax Americana. What is Bush's "free trade?" It's an economic model that argues that by removing restrictions on multinational corporations, these companies will be freed to become engines of economic growth in countries around the world, but in fact bring vast wealth of a small number of global elites while entire populations suffer dislocation, poverty and violence, creating a perfect Petri dish for breeding terrorists. The instruments for this takeover include such corporations as Bechtel, Lockheed Martin, ChevronTexaco, Halliburton, and many others.

This book addresses the history of U.S. economic relations throughout the world over the past 25 years, the key role of U.S. corporations, and the larger Bush economic agenda and what the potential impact of this agenda will be on the United States and the world. It concludes with specific alternatives to guide the U.S. on a more peaceful and sustainable course in the future. Using Naomi Klein's No Logo and Eric Schlosser's Fast Food Nation as models, The Bush Agenda is based on hard analytic fact and presented so that it will not only be persuasive, but highly engaging and entertaining to a broad audience.

Book News Annotation:

The Bush agenda is only about spreading freedom if by "freedom" one means the freedom of big corporations to exploit the world as part of an unchallengeable American Empire. So argues Juhasz (Institute for Policy Studies) in her expose of the origins, formulation, and implementation of the Bush agenda. She looks at the key players in pushing the agenda, including members of the Bush administration, major corporations such as Bechtel and Halliburton, and the international financial and trade organizations. She also discusses the invasion of Iraq as a form of economic warfare designed to implement corporate freedom in its most naked form, reviewing the so- called "Bremer laws" that sought to impose free market orthodoxy on the nascent Iraqi government, among other aspects of corporate involvement with the invasion and occupation of Iraq.

I have not yet read the book, I'm ordering it today from this site, but any and everyone exposing the Neoconservative agenda is a hero in by book. As a Borquineno (Puerto Rican to the less informed) I experienced first hand what the AmeriZan agenda is before it became fashionable. Our women have been exposed to forced hormone experiementation, inflation at 40%-50% in 1960 and the atrocities goes on and on, way before the AmeriZan people were exposed to these indignities(see indigenous North Americans for more atrocities), AmeriZan liberation in 1918 without provocation. We are now privileged to be AmeriZan citizens without so much as a "How do you do?" You might now see how distructive these people are, we have lived with it see 1918. Pero "Siempre para alante, nunca para atras.
