In THE SHOCK DOCTRINE, Naomi Klein explodes the myth that the global free market triumphed democratically. Exposing the thinking, the money trail and the puppet strings behind the world-changing crises and wars of the last four decades, The Shock Doctrine is the gripping story of how America’s “free market” policies have come to dominate the world-- through the exploitation of disaster-shocked people and countries

Born with a golden spoon in his mouth, David Dellinger could have had it all. A talented athlete from an affluent background, educated at Yale and Oxford, he had every advantage. But he gave it all up for justice and principle, enduring financial insecurity, long prison terms, hunger strikes, death threats, for causes he believed in. In 1940 he was invited by Mrs. Roosevelt to have tea at the White House. He went, had tea with her, then hopped a freight train home!
Neo-liberalism has become the most influential ideology of our times. It guides both Democratic and Republican policies and, increasingly, those of European and developing countries worldwide. In The Terror of Neoliberalism, influential cultural critic Henry Giroux assesses the impact of neoliberalism and points to better approaches to building real democracy. Neoliberalism, too commonly regarded an economic theory, is a complex of values, ideologies, and practices that work more broadly as a 'cultural field'.; Giroux argues that its cultural dimensions erode the public participation that is the very foundation of democratic life. Under neoliberal policies, Giroux shows, populations are increasingly denied the symbolic, educational, and economic capital necessary for engaged citizenship. Giroux assesses the impact of neoliberalism on the language of democracy, race, education, and the media, offering alternatives necessary to restore our democratic institutions. Henry A. Giroux, McMaster University, is the author of The Abandoned Generation: Democracy Beyond the Culture of Fear (Palgrave 2003).

Comment est-on passé à un nouveau capitalisme orienté par les seuls verdicts de la finance ?
Patrick D. Goonan "www.meaningful-life.us" "Integral Spirituality lays out a worldview that tries to encompass and take whatever is of value from as many worldviews as possible. It assumes that no particular position is completely wrong and looks for patterns of meaning across the world's wisdom traditions. Anyone familiar with Wilber will already know this, but for those new to him this point may be useful to mention."
