The Collapse of Globalism
IN THE MIDST OF A WORLDWIDE SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC CRISIS, JOHN RALSTON SAUL REVISITS THE ROLE OF GLOBALISM
In 1999, Saul began arguing that Globalism was collapsing. In 2005, he laid out this scenario in The Collapse of Globalism. Now Saul has enlarged the book, showing how today's crisis came about and suggesting what to do next.
In this new edition, Saul describes the financial crisis as a mere boil to be lanced. The far more serious problem is that the West remains stuck on outdated ideas of growth, wealth creation and trade expansion.
Whereas public policy is still dominated by the people who created this crisis, Saul envisions a new sort of wealth creation and growth and advocates new forms of action.
Declared a 'prophet' by Time magazine, Saul offers prescient insights into today's global crisis.

'Informative, engaging and, above all, bitingly critical . . . A breath of fresh air.'
THE GUARDIAN (LONDON)
