About this book

Makes clear the problems of how underdevelopment in the south is linked to overdevelopment in the north, what to do about social injustice and poverty both domestically and between the industrialized and developing countries, and about continuing global environmental destruction.

A comprehensive and masterly analysis of the global economic problem. -- James Robertson, author of "Future Wealth: A New Economics for the 21st Century"
" The book is relevant to a broad range of academic disciplines, especially due to its cross- cultural focus and interdisciplinary perspective." -- "Choice"


What this book is all about. Part 1 The structure of the global system: the economic problem in a nutshell; economic discrepancies; ecological deterioration; causes of economic imbalances. Part 2 The transformation of collective consciousness: the social reality of convictions; activating the resources of faith; traditionalism and modernity; overcoming the dependency syndrome; interests and ideology. Part 3 Towards a new economic paradigm: the pending paradigm shift in economics; a more fundamental approach - market and marginalization; a wider frame of reference - entropy and evolution. Part 4 The transformation of social structures: drawing up the agenda; policies for peripherals; policies for centres; policies for centre-periphery interaction.
