Whose Crisis, Whose Future  


Whose Crisis, Whose Future
Polity | December 6, 2010 | 307 pages

POLITICAL SCIENCE & THEORY. Crisis? Whose crisis? Today we are in the midst of a multifaceted crisis which touches the lives of everyone on the planet. Whether it's growing poverty and inequality or shrinking access to food and water, the collapse of global financial markets or the dire effects of climate change, every aspect of this crisis can be traced back to a transnational neoliberal elite that has steadily usurped our rights, power and influence over world affairs.With her usual verve, passion and intelligence, Susan George explores each dimension of this deepening planetary emergency, arguing that it presents an extraordinary opportunity for humankind. Our world has never been so wealthy, and we have, right now, all the knowledge, tools and skills we need to build a greener, fairer, richer world. Such a breakthrough is not some far-fetched utopia, but an immediate, concrete possibility. Our future is in our hands.
