A People's World
| Price: $ 17.5
John Madeley has interviewed some of the world¿s most courageous and innovative campaigners and progressive thinkers. Here is what they think about:
-What globalization really is;
-What's wrong with it;
-Practicable and concrete alternatives.
Interviewees include 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.
The destruction of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001 has shifted public attention to terrorism. But the pastures that nurture violence and extremism remain rooted in a global system that has rapidly become more and more economically unjust, financially unstable, environmentally unsustainable and socially illegitimate. This is a timely book of ideas and practical proposals for those campaigning for a new world that is more just, humane, stable and conducive to the diversity of human cultures.
Particular attention is given to:
-Regulating transnational corporations;
-Changing the rules by which the WTO seeks to govern the global economy;
-Switching the economic emphasis from the global to the local;
-Cancellation of foreign debt.
