Overview

Close to half of humanity—2.8 billion people—barely survive on less than $2 a day. The less developed countries often face economic deprivation caused not by state action or inaction, but by the global economic system itself. In addition, basic human rights as guaranteed by international law defined by the United Nations are violated daily. The Global New Deal investigates six key areas central to the achievement of economic and social human rights: the international political economy, the UN, ecosystem protection, racial bias, gender equality, and military spending. The author then introduces what he calls the "global new deal," a set of international policy proposals designed to protect the vulnerable and end needless suffering. These structural reforms provide a viable means by which to safeguard social and economic human rights for all.
