about

The collection of lectures and publications from the Schumacher Center for a New Economics represents some of the foremost voices on a new economics.

Long in the forefront of the anti-globalization movement, Jerry Mander sets forth in clear and impassioned terms the devastating effects of the current global economy—"the most fundamental redesign of the planet's systems since the Industrial Revolution"—and shows how such measures as the Multilateral Agreement on Investment are designed to make the rich richer and the poor poorer. But he also shows the steps that can be taken by individuals and groups in opposition to globalization to protest and resist its domination and raise the fundamental question, "Who should make the rules we live by?" Delivered just a few weeks before the massive protest demonstrations in Seattle in November 1999, Mander anticipates the powerful forces that gathered there and suggests ways in which the anti-globalization movement can continue to make its voice heard and its truths manifest in future struggles.
