People First Economics takes a long, hard look at the mess globalised capitalism is in, and shifts the focus back to where it belongs – putting the needs of people and the environment first.
Toxic debt, rising job losses, collapsing commodity prices and expanding poverty. How can we rein in these beasts unleashed by the free market economy? Taking a hard look at the mess of global capitalism, this new edition shifts the focus back to the needs of people and the environment. Vanessa Baird and David Ransom have gathered a passionate group of writers, activists, leaders and thinkers to seize this opportunity to replace deep-rooted problems with well-founded solutions.
Evo Morales promotes his 10 step programme to save the world, life and humanity; Michel Albert advocates a classless alternative to capitalism; Naomi Klein encourages public revolt…. It also includes a chapter by Richard Wilkinson and Kate Pickett, authors of the bestselling and influential The Spirit Level.
This book is about more than economics. It’s about radical changes that are social, moral and ecological, and it provides the opportunity to rethink what really matters in life.
