Mark Engler in Miami and Sarasota Next Week
Mark Engler will be in Florida next week.
HOW TO RULE THE WORLD: The Coming Battle Over the Global Economy
by Mark Engler.(Nation Books).
Mark Engler, a journalist, activist, and policy expert, details how the Bush administration has reshaped globalization in ways that few protesters in Seattle or elsewhere could have foreseen: Global trade talks are collapsing. The roles of international institutions like the WTO, IMF, and World Bank are dramatically changing. U.S. unilateralism and the disastrous war in Iraq have deepened international divisions. As a result, the stage is now set for a critical new debate about the global economy.
