About this book

Devastating critique of the tyranny of the global economy. In the minds of many, `globalization', `free trade' and the hope for rapid economic development in the Third World have become synonymous. The consequences - the growing gap between rich and poor within the developed nations as well as between the developed nations as well as between the developed and Third World, the devastating impact on the environment and the high price that developing countries must pay - are often overlooked. Korten has played major roles within the establishment he critically examines and offers alternatives.
`Probably the most important economics book to come out since the Wealth of Nations' - David Rivard, California World
`This is a must read book - a searing indictment of an unjust international economic order, not by a wild-eyed idealistic left-winger, but by a sober scion of the establishment with impeccable credentials.' Archbishop Desmond Tutu
