In Profit Over People, Noam Chomsky takes on neoliberalism: the pro-corporate system of economic and political policies presently waging a form of class war worldwide. By examining the contradictions between the democratic and market principles proclaimed by those in power and those actually practiced, Chomsky critiques the tyranny of the few that restricts the public arena and enacts policies that vastly increase private wealth, often with complete disregard for social and ecological consequences. Combining detailed historical examples and uncompromising criticism, Chomsky offers a profound sense of hope that social activism can reclaim people's rights as citizens rather than as consumers, redefining democracy as a global movement, not a global market.

StarGladiator has no idea what he's talking about. although this collection of essays/lectures is from the late 90s, virtually everything he has to say about neoliberalism and globalization is still relevant. I'd also recommend Naomi Klein's "The Shock Doctrine."

So, does professional disinformation specialist, Noam Chomsky, name the names, and tell us who the owners are? The super-rich behind the Wall Street agenda? No, of course not. Mr. Nebulous will never jeopardize his earnings and defense industry investments! For real information about what is really taking place, I humbly suggest Erin Arvedlund's book, Open Secret.
