Whose Crisis? Whose Future?
Whose Crisis? Whose Future? contrasts the stark realities of multiple crises facing human society, during a period of growing poverty, insecurity and austerity, with the vast amount of wealth that has been concentrated in a few hands, and asks what kind of policy going forward can address this inbalance.
Today we are in the midst of a multifaceted crisis which touches the lives of everyone on the planet. Whether it′s growing poverty and inequality or shrinking access to food and water, the collapse of global financial markets or the dire effects of climate change, every aspect of this crisis can be traced to a transnational neoliberal elite that has steadily eroded our rights and stripped us of power.
And yet our world has never been so wealthy, and we have, right now, all the knowledge, tools and skills we need to build a greener, fairer, richer world. Such a breakthrough is not some far–fetched utopia, but an immediate, concrete possibility. Our future is in our hands.
