Faith and credit : the World Bank's secular empire by Susan George ( Book )
9 editions published in 1994 in English and Norwegian and held by 500 libraries worldwide
In its fifty years of existence, the World Bank has influenced more lives in the Third World than any other institution, yet it remains largely unknown, even enigmatic. Although it claims to be a purely economic institution, the Bank wields enormous political power and has succeeded in making its own view of development appear to be the norm. In this richly illuminating and lively overview, Susan George and Fabrizio Sabelli examine the Bank's policies, its internal culture, and the interests it serves. They reveal a supranational, non-democratic, and extremely powerful institution that functions much like the medieval church or a monolithic political party, relying on rigid doctrine, hierarchy, and a rejection of dissenting ideas to perpetuate its influence. Its faith in orthodox economics, the idea of perpetual growth, and the capacity of the market to solve development problems is incompatible with its professed goals of helping the poor and protecting the environment. Faced with these contradictions, the Bank is increasingly struggling to reconcile the roles of commercial lender, policymaker, and great humanitarian. This book is crucial reading for any one interested in development and economy of the Third World, especially for international, political, and development economists.

Hijacking America : how the religious and secular right changed what Americans think by Susan George ( Book )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 290 libraries worldwide
"George Bush leaves the White House in January 2009 and the United States goes back to "normal," right? Wrong, argues Susan George in this account of the decades-long transformation of American society and political culture. Using the four "Ms"--Money, media, marketing, management - but above all with a keen sense of mission, the American secular and religious right has made its "long march through the institutions" and changed the way Americans think."--Jacket.

Whose crisis, whose future? : towards a greener, fairer, richer world by Susan George ( Book )
3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 178 libraries worldwide
Crisis? Whose crisis? 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. -- Back cover.
We the peoples of Europe by Susan George ( Book )
5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 167 libraries worldwide
Is the EU Constitution dead in the water? Although it may have disappeared out of the headlines for a while, the idea of having a binding EU Constitution still lies at the heart of future plans for the European Union. Ordinary people will be able to vote on the issue: but is there really a widespread understanding of what the Constitution would actually entail? Leading writer and anti-globalisation activist Susan George presents a succinct analysis of what is at stake for all peoples of Europe. How will the constitution affect our lives, and who does it really empower? Will it be the politicians and corporations that benefit? Will it involve much closer political alignment between all EU countries, and if it does then what does our future look like? Written with clarity and authority, this book will help you make up your own mind.
