Field Guide to the Global Economy

by Sarah Anderson & John Cavanagh
£11.99   paperback  The New Press (2005)

Field Guide to the Global Economy by Sarah Anderson & John Cavanagh This fully-updated and expanded second edition of Field Guide to the Global Economy presents the latest facts to help make sense of the rapidly changing international economy. Illustrated throughout with charts, graphs, and cartoons, the book documents new trends, including the foreign 'outsourcing' of U.S. service jobs, as well as the increasing influence of mega-firms like Wal-Mart with its exploited labour force in the United States, China and elsewhere.
 
This accessible guide explains how global institutions such as the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, the World Trade Organisation, and the North American Free Trade Agreement affect communities, workers, the poor, and the environment. This book dispels the widely disseminated propaganda about current globalisation policies and provides an update on the burgeoning movement that is challenging them, from Bolivian water warriors to U.S. student anti-sweatshop activists.

"People the world over need a handbook to guide them through the muck, myth and propaganda that surround globalization. This book offers a clear map. Read it, learn and engage."
(William Grieder, author of "One World, Ready or Not")
