Unraveling the complicated details surrounding the world's present economic and political climate, this collection of interviews addresses the faulty underpinnings of capitalism and discusses why the future must be economically founded otherwise. Probing into the roots of the global economic crisis, the role that debt and privatization play in dampening social revolt, and the ramifications of post-colonial mentality in the Global South, this collection provides the tools for reconsidering capitalism and solutions for surviving current crisis by learning from past mistakes. This collection includes conversations with some of the most noted thinkers and political economists on the Left, including Noam Chomsky, Tariq Ali, Mike Davis, David Harvey, Ellen Meiksins Wood, and Doug Henwood.
