DESCRIPTION:

Acclaim for The Global Class War""You will never think about 'free trade' the same way after reading Jeff Faux's superb book. The most cynical Americans will be shocked by the sordid details. This really is an important book.""-William Greider, author of The Soul of Capitalism and Secrets of the Temple""Globalization is a cover for American imperialism, but the beneficiaries are not the American people at the expense of foreigners but corporate executives at the expense of working-class and poor people wherever they may be. This book should transform public discourse in America.""-Robert Kuttner, founding coeditor of the American Prospect and a contributing columnist to BusinessWeek""Jeff Faux's astonishing story of how class works will scandalize the best names in Wall Street and Washington-especially the much admired Robert Rubin, who along with other elites colluded behind the backs of ordinary citizens in Mexico, Canada, and the United States. As Faux makes clear, the globalization debate is really about whose interests are served by global elites, and how we need to go about reclaiming a democracy that serves ordinary people. Jeff Faux offers a comprehensive and devastating analysis.""-Chalmers Johnson, author of The Sorrows of Empire

Valuable information This is an excellent analysis of class and how it functions on a global scale.The information on the organizing and selling of NAFTA was superb. I have long worked on the NAFTA issues, but this book provided a deeper , broader view. My own work has been on lab. THIS is what American politics is all about. Everything else is divide-and-conquer distraction This book has its faults--repetition, extraneous detail--but the basic message is the most important one in American politics today: among America's elites, there is no "culture war," no "conservative versus liberal." They have a concrete agenda, and it's all . EthosInFreefall said One of the Best Analyses of Globalism I have read. Jeff Faux does a masterful job of revealing in detail the heinous raping of the American people (and the rest of the world's people) by the richest elites. After reading this book, no one can ever again pretend to be ignorant of the the deception being perpetr

He details the genesis of NAFTA and the failure of the agreement to deliver on its promises to workers, predicting a severe American recession as its legacy. . With a fluid grasp of both history and economics, Faux, founder of the Economic Policy Institute, critiques both Democrats and Republicans for protecting transnational corporations "while abandoning the rest of us to an unregulated, and therefore brutal and merciless, global market." Faux describes how free trade and globalization have encouraged businesses to become nationless enterprises detached from the economic well-being of any single country, to the detriment of all but transnational elites. But Faux sees hope for North America in the model of the European Union, a pie-in-the-sky conclusion to this incisive, rancorous book. From Publishers Weekl
