Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“With acid wit and somber truths, The Lugano Report brilliantly portrays, through the eyes of its imagined but all-to-realistic planners, a world that may be heading for deep trouble.”—Noam Chomsky

“In this satire, a summit on preserving the capitalist order comes to some disturbing conclusions as it follows the logic of capitalism ad infinitum.”—Washington Post

“The Lugano Report is a brilliant and innovative means of exposing a world order that serves only the strongest. A compelling satire, packed with information, this is the work of an author in complete control of her subject.”—George Monibot

“In this book, at once funny and tragic, Susan George reveals the power of neo-liberal prophecy and the absurdity of the economic system it has in store for us.”—Pierre Bourdieu
