Your money or your life
by Eric Toussaint

“Your money or your life” by Eric Toussaint.

A precise and pedagogical analysis of the present process of globalisation of the capitalist economy and the mechanism of the third world debt. The interventions and the evolution of the international financial institutions (IMF, Wb,...) are accurately criticized particularly in the field of the Structural Ajustment Plans and their political, economical and social consequences. One chapter explains the origins, the evolution and the role played by the neoliberal ideology which lies beneath these politics.

The last two chapters are dedicated to alternatives : a series of “paths” and realistic proposals in order to “globalise the revendications and the fights against the globalisation of our economy”.
