Profits Over People

Neoliberalism and the New Order

von Chomsky, Noam   (Autor)

Why is the Atlantic slowly filling with crude petroleum, threatening a millions-of-years-old ecological balance? Why did traders at prominent banks take high-risk gambles with the money entrusted to them and create a global financial crisis? The culprit is neoliberal ideology, the belief in the supremacy of free markets to drive and govern human affairs. Chomsky reveals the roots of the present crisis, traces the history of neoliberalism through an analysis of free trade agreements, the WTO and the IMF and describes the movements of resistance.

Kritik

"Profit Over People is Noam Chomsky at his best. His critique of our political and economic system is brilliant and devastating. This is a powerful rush of facts and ideas. Don't stand too close." -Howard Zinn 

Autoreninfo

Born in Philadelphia in 1928, NOAM CHOMSKY is known throughout the world for his political writings, activism, and for for his groundbreaking work in linguistics. A professor at Massachusetts Institute of Technology since 1955, Chomsky gained recognition in academic circles for his theory of transformational grammar, which drew attention to the syntactic universality of all human languages. But it is as a critic of unending war, corporate control and neoliberalism that Chomsky has become one of the country's most well known public intellectuals. The 1969 publication of American Power and the New Mandarins marked the beginning of Chomsky's rigorous public criticism of American hegemony and its lieges. Since then, with his tireless scholarship and an unflagging sense of moral responsibility, he has become one of the most influential writers in the world. Chomsky is the author of Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media (with Edward S. Herman), Profit Over People: Neoliberalism and Global Order , and over one hundred other books. To this day Noam Chomsky remains an active and uncompromising voice of dissent.
