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 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
