In episode three of this interview series, Susan George explains how she managed to write How to win the Class War - The Lugano Report II from the perspective of the very people she opposed all her life, the 'Davos Class'.
Liam Barrington-Bush reads Susan George’s new book, ‘How to Win the Class War: The Lugano Report II,’ and, while impressed by its breadth of information, is left wondering if more intellectual criticisms of capitalism are going to help us get out of the mess the free market has created.
In today's world transnational corporations (TNCs) have asserted themselves as global entities, which exercise their power without any accountability that matches their economic and political influence. The panelists will assess the impact of a 2014 UNHRC initiative that would bind TNCs in terms of human rights and explore alternatives to the current neoliberal system of corporate impunity.
Will the world economy be forever more market-oriented and dominated by transnational corporations? This short and trenchant history of the organizations promoting economic globalization - the World Bank, IMF, WTO, and Group of Seven - points to their manifest failings.
What would you recommend if you wanted to preserve capitalism in the 21st century? The Lugano Report stakes out new territory and proceeds with relentless logic from uncompromising diagnosis to chilling cure.
