About this book

Leading thinkers, from both North and South, confront what is to be done about the clearly unstable world economic system. They examine a range of different ideas and approaches including: how do we renew the process of governance of the global economy?; can the IMF be reformed?; do we need a new World Financial Authority?; is there a case for capital controls?; can an international bankruptcy procedure be set up for countries, modelled on the USA's own domestic Chapter 11?; could the Tobin Tax on foreign currency transactions be part of the solution?; and what effective measures are needed to relieve the most deeply indebted countries? These questions are set in the context of understanding neo-liberalist economic thinking and policy. Fundamental questions are raised about recasting economic institutions and strategies on the basis of democratically controlled, environmentally compatible alternative lines.
