No one could have predicted or planned the revolution that we're in. For it is a revolution not just a temporary aberration or passing hurricane. Capitalism as we know it is falling about our ears, and the world will never be the same again. Perverse as it may sound, this is a tremendous opportunity for the human race. It's a chance to alter our relations to each other and to the planet. People-First Economics looks at what the crash means and could mean for us all. It's about economics and about a lot more. It's about radical changes that are social, moral, ecological, and philosophical, too changes that are already beginning to happen. In a series of plain-speaking contributions, David Ransom brings together exciting and radical activists and thinkers, such as Naomi Klein, Walden Bello, and Susan George, to set the agenda for economic democratization. Launching New Internationalist's World Changing imprint, People-First Economics covers everything from the green revolution and feminist economics to what we can learn from history and a ten-step economic detox. In doing so, it provides the opportunity to rethink what really matters in life.
