MONTREAL, Jan. 20 /CNW Telbec/ - "The Global Economic Crisis: The Great Depression of the XXI Century", the latest book from the Centre for Research on Globalization,
challenges the idea that the global economy is in recovery.
Instead, it is on the verge of entering the greatest depression in
history. This volume brings together essays by various researchers,
academics, and writers to explain the crisis in a broader global
context: its historical origins, its social, political and economic
repercussions, as well as its relationship to wars and military
strategy around the world.
Topics include: financial deregulation, history of central banking, the
shadow banking system, the 'War on Terror', Homeland Security, the
bailout, global poverty, and global governance. The authors approach
the subject from a variety of perspectives, and propose a number of
alternative solutions which aren't heard in the mainstream discourse.
Yet, all the contributors agree: this is the greatest economic crisis
in world history.
