Who will tell the people : the betrayal of American democracy by William Greider( Book )

23 editions published between 1992 and 1994 in English and Japanese and held by 2,350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Secrets of the Temple, his acclaimed national best-seller, William Greider traced the inner workings of the Federal Reserve. Now Greider turns his investigative savvy and long Washington experience to a subject of even more vital concern: the failure of American politics and the faltering of the democratic process itself. Democracy is in deep trouble, trouble more serious than we realize. The very fabric of our system--the meaning of self-government, the values that have sustained us--is unraveling quickly, dangerously and perhaps irrevocably. Who Will Tell the People is a passionate, eye-opening challenge from a man determined to make us understand. Here is a tough-minded exploration of why we're in trouble, starting with the basic issues of who gets heard, who gets ignored, and why. Greider shows us the realities of power in Washington today, uncovering the hidden contours of relationships that link politicians with corporations and the rich and subvert the needs of ordinary citizens. He shows us how "modern methodologies of persuasion," often originating in the public relations firms, direct-mail companies and opinion-polling firms that line the streets of the capital, have created a new hierarchy of influence over government decisions. He shows us today's Capitol Hill, where a lone congressman who tries to represent the public interest can find himself aligned against an army of well-paid "authorities." The public's belief that government serves "a few big interests" is not mistaken. Greider explains exactly how this has come to pass. And where are the institutions designed to represent the people? Where are the unions? The political parties? The press? Gone, Greider writes, or transformed so radically that they no longer speak faithfully for the people. Citizen action is reduced to media stunts designed for shock value. Voters leave the traditional parties and dismiss elections as meaningless. Reporters write to please the people whose values they share--the guys at the top. How can we make change happen? How do we put meaning back into public life? Greider tells us the stories of some citizens who have managed to crack Washington's "Grand Bazaar" of influence buying and peddling as he reveals the structures of power designed to thwart them. Without naivete or cynicism, Greider shows us how the system can still be made to work for the people as he tackles gut issues like who pays taxes and who escapes them; who breathes bad air when industries manipulate environmental organizations; and who'll suffer the biggest losses as the world economy goes global and our national economy contracts. Who Will Tell the People delineates the lines of battle in the struggle to save democracy. Greider shows us the reality of how the decisions that shape our lives are made and how we can begin to take control once more
One world, ready or not : the manic logic of global capitalism by William Greider( Book )

6 editions published between 1997 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 1,562 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The global economy is the leitmotif of the end of the twentieth century. Driven by the logic of modern capitalism, the global economy, a product of the Third Industrial Revolution, is a wondrous free-running system that is reordering the world as it transforms the lives and economic prospects of workers, corporations and nations. Having traveled the globe and talked to factory workers, corporate CEOs, economists and government officials, Greider contends that the global economy is sowing "creative destruction" everywhere: while making possible great accumulations of wealth, it is also reviving forms of human exploitation that characterized industry one hundred years ago and raising profound questions about the relevance of the nation-state in the face of impersonal market forces
