The case against the global economy : and for a turn toward the local by Jerry Mander ( Book )
16 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 1,276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Expressed in such new institutions as GATT, NAFTA, the World Trade Organizations, and Maastricht, as well as by the development schemes of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund, economic globalization has been bulldozed through legislative bodies throughout the world, with scant public debate or discourse." "These tremendous changes are hailed by their backers as leading to a new era or prosperity and peace, but is this true?" "Now, for the first time, we have a comprehensive point-by-point analysis of the workings of the global economy, its premises, and its dire implications told by more than forty of the world's leading social, environmental, and economic thinkers from the America's, Europe, Asia, and the Pacific. They charge that free trade and economic globalization create exactly the opposite results from what is promised." "Each of the forty-three chapters in The Case Against the Global Economy takes one part of the story and delves into it, to show both the root assumptions of globalism and its multiple failures. In the end, it is clear that we need to reverse course; away from the global toward a revitalization of local political and economic control, self-sufficiency, and ecological health."--BOOK JACKET

6 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in French and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
La croyance au progrès nous habite au point qu'il est inconcevable de ne pas aller de l'avant. Ainsi nous sommes embarqués sur un bolide qui semble ne plus avoir ni marche arrière, ni frein, ni conducteur. Son moteur ? La mondialisation libérale. Son but ? La marchandisation du monde. Ses effets ? La crise de la vache folle, les errements des organismes génétiquement modifiés, l'instabilité économique, le réchauffement de la terre, les terribles atteintes à l'environnement... Le présent ouvrage, d'une remarquable richesse, réunit les plus grands spécialistes mondiaux de tous les domaines impliqués. Il étudie les différents processus de la mondialisation et son impact sur les aspects de la vie : aggravation de la pauvreté et de l'exclusion, démantèlement des économies locales, homogénéisation de la culture, menaces sur les milieux naturels, sur la santé, sur la diversité biologique, sur les prcessus démocratiques... Menage également sur l'indépendance des pays lorsqu'on sait le néo-colonisalisme que véhiculent à la fois les transnationales et des institutions comme le FMI, la Banque Mondiale ou l'OMC. Il dénonce aussi les fausses panacées et propose de vraies solutions. Un livre fondamental qui a valeur de prise de conscience : il est urgent, si nous ne voulons pas risquer la grande implosion, de faire marche arrière, de remettre l'économie là où elle aurait toujours dû rester : au service de l'homme. "Le procès de la mondialisation" a reçu, aux Etats-Unis, le prix du meilleur livre politique de l'année
