Harry Shutt argues our world is coming under threat from forces that the ruling elite is increasingly unable to control. Our present economic system is inherently unstable and heading not just for recession, but very serious breakdown. And US domination of international politics cannot last in an age where democracy and respect for human rights are demanded and where marginalisation of most of the world's people is no longer acceptable. This book gives us a trenchant mix of powerful critique and concrete hope. The author exposes the fantasies at the heart of today's market capitalism and counterfeit democracy.

Here is a message of hope, a contribution to a new political agenda, and the intellectual ideas to support it.
