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.

So, does professional disinformation specialist, Noam Chomsky, name the names, and tell us who the owners are? The super-rich behind the Wall Street agenda? No, of course not. Mr. Nebulous will never jeopardize his earnings and defense industry investments! For real information about what is really taking place, I humbly suggest Erin Arvedlund's book, Open Secret.
