Lugano Report - New Edition: On Preserving Capitalism in the Twenty-first Century by Susan George

This is a new edition of Susan George's acclaimed satire on capitalism. Fictional experts recruited by world leaders to discuss the future of global capitalism provide their assessment of the dire state of the current economy and put forward new ideas for ensuring the survival of the system. But at what cost? Susan George provides a brilliant and chilling vision of the way the winners in the globalisation game profit from poverty and reveals, with relentless logic, the dark future that lies ahead under capitalism. This new edition features a new introduction from the author.

What People are Saying About This

Noam Chomsky

With acid wit and somber truths, Susan George brilliantly portrays through the eyes of imagined, but all too realistic planners, a world that may be heading for deep trouble.
