Published in Canada in association with New Internationalist™ Publications Ltd. by Between the Lines, 2010.


Globalization can be a force for equality – there's more access to information that can spread awareness and change people's lives. But it can also be seen as the embodiment of inequality – the rich world's rabid consumption of resources comes at the expense of poor countries, forced to cut costs and corners to compete.

This fully revised and updated edition of The No-Nonsense Guide to Globalization distills the complexities into an easy-to-grasp commentary. It examines the debt trap; the acceleration of neoliberalism and the "free trade" model; competition for energy resources; the links between the "war on terror", the arms trade and privatization; the emergence of China and India as economic superpowers. Full analysis of the financial crisis that started in 2007 outlines what happens when deregulation, speculation and greed are given full rein. And it explores strategies for redesigning the global economy so that it better serves the public good.
