Economic globalization--the creation of a one-world economy with the free-flow of capital, goods and services across national boundaries--is eroding the economic sovereignty of nations and producing a trail of unemployment and social turmoil in its wake. Further, the irresistible force of economic globalization is set to crash into the immovable object of the global environmental crisis, producing a breakdown of civilized order in the world and threatening the continuation of human life itself. Thisbook is a systematic critique of orthodox neoclassical economics, which has supplied a philosophical and ideological framework for economic globalization, unending economic growth and the ceaseless exploitation of nature.
