Book Description

Review 'For years, people have been asking what to read to understand the global economy, its institutions, its crises, the reasons for the particular forms it has taken and their effects- and what they can do about it. Is there really 'No Alternative,' as constantly proclaimed? Why these arrangements and principles, not others? Robin Hahnel has written that book: lucid, enlightening, deeply-informed, wide-ranging, and constructive. It's just what has been needed.' -- Noam Chomsky Read more About the Author Robin Hahnel is Professor of Economics at American University in Washington, DC.
