Hegemonic forces drive the process of globalisation and economic globalisation must be clearly distinguished from internationalism. The changes brought about in the process have been rapid, massive and qualitative. The phenomenon is growing rapidly and has acquired newer dimensions and nuances, therefore, debate and analysis on globalisation confront considerable difficulties and there are no fixed lines of contestation.
This volume of essays introduces a new debate, posting a new approach and methodological enquiry that goes beyond the usual broader and generalised notions of globalisation. Dr. Eric Toussaint also challenges the idea of inevitability. The idological propaganda that ’there o no alternative’ to economic globalism has itself become the ruling ideology of the dominant classes and their allies, in the intelligentsia, to “make believe” that globaliation is beneficial in the long run and that it has come to “stay”.
