Profit Over People
Neoliberalism and Global OrderBook - 1999
Why is the Atlantic slowly filling with crude petroleum, threatening a millions-of-years-old ecological balance? Why did traders at prominent banks take high-risk gambles with the money entrusted to them and create a global financial crisis? The culprit is neoliberal ideology, the belief in the supremacy of free markets to drive and govern human affairs. Chomsky reveals the roots of the present crisis, traces the history of neoliberalism through an analysis of free trade agreements, the WTO and the IMF and describes the movements of resistance.
