Your Money or Your Life! - The Tyranny of Global Finance - By "Eric Toussaint"

File size: 13.74 mb

When this book is released in English by Pluto Press in the spring of 1999, it will have already appeared in six other languages: French, Dutch, Spanish, German, Turkish and Greek. For a book that does not hide its hostility to the neo-liberal project, this in itself is a sign of renewed interest in global alternatives to mainstream thinking. Meetings have been organised to launch the book in a number of countries in Latin America, Africa and Europe. The meetings have provided an opportunity to test the validity of the book's main arguments. The results have been encouraging. As a result of the exchange organised around the proposals advanced in chapter 17, these proposals will be reworked in line with the thoughtful criticisms and additions I have received.
A number of significant events have taken place since the book was completed in May 1998. They provide the raw material necessary for fine-tuning the book's main theses.
