Michel Chossudovsky & Andrew Gavin Marshall, eds: The Global Economic Crisis

The Great Depression of the XXI Century
Global Research, 2010     Amazon.com
Book Description:
In all major regions of the world, the economic recession is deep-seated, resulting in mass unemployment, the collapse of state social programs and the impoverishment of millions of people. The meltdown of financial markets was the result of institutionalized fraud and financial manipulation. The economic crisis is accompanied by a worldwide process of militarization, a war without borders led by the U.S. and its NATO allies. This book takes the reader through the corridors of the Federal Reserve, into the plush corporate boardrooms on Wall Street where far-reaching financial transactions are routinely undertaken. Each of the authors in this timely collection digs beneath the gilded surface to reveal a complex web of deceit and media distortion which serves to conceal the workings of the global economic system and its devastating impacts on people`s lives.
Reviews:
“This important collection offers the reader a most comprehensive analysis of the various facets especially the financial, social and military ramifications from an outstanding list of world-class social thinkers.”  Mario Seccareccia, Professor of Economics, University of Ottawa
“In-depth investigations of the inner workings of the plutocracy in crisis, presented by some of our best politico-economic analysts. This book should help put to rest the hallucinations of free market ideology.”  Michael Parenti, author of God and His Demons and Contrary Notions

Provides a very readable exposé of a global economic system, manipulated by a handful of extremely powerful economic actors for their own benefit, to enrich a few at the expense of an ever-growing majority.”  David Ray Griffin, author of The New Pearl Harbor Revisited
