'Economic Recovery' Turns into a New Great Depression

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.
