Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Twenty essays from Third World activist and scholar Bello (director, Focus on the Global South, Bangkok) critique the activities of international financial institutions such as the World Trade Organization, the International Monetary Fund, and the World Bank. Bello analyzes the causes of the current social, ecological, and financial crisis and proposes an alternative world order which subordinates the market to society, promotes equality, and protects the environment.
