A People's World: Alternatives to Economic Globalization (Global Issues S.)
John MadeleyISBN: 1842772236;
The terrorist attacks on 9/11 shifted public attention to terrorism. But John Madeley contends that the sources that nurture violence and extremism remain rooted in a global system that has rapidly become more and more economically unjust, corporate-driven, financially unstable, and socially illegitimate. Madeley strips bare the myth that there are no alternatives to it. He looks at what needs to happen to enable alternatives to be implemented, paying particular attention to: Tackling corporate power; The World Trade Organization--reform or replace?; Switching the economic emphasis from the global to the local; and Cancellation of foreign debt. Madeley interviewed Peggy Antrobus, Walden Bello, Barry Coates, Fiona Dove, Gustavo Esteva, Hazel Henderson, Francois Houtart, Martin Khor, David Korten, Caroline Lucas MEP, Helena Norberg-Hodge, Ann Pettifor, Devinder Sharma, Vandana Shiva, Victoria Tauli-Corpuz and many others for this book.
