In "One World, Ready or Not, " a national bestseller, Wiliam Greider focuses his incomparable reportorial skills on exposing the myths and the realities of the global ecnomy in terms of human struggle. Drawing on in-depth investigations and interviews with factory workers, corporate CEOs, economists and government officials around the world, he contends that the global economy is sowing "creative destruction" everywhere: while making possible great accumulations of wealth, it is also reviving forms of human exploitation that characterized industry one hundred years ago. Greider warns that if the system isn't reformed it will threaten not only our middle-class lifestyles but also social peace in rich and poor countries alike.
In this impressive book, William Greider, the bestelling author of Who Will Tell the People? and Secrets of the Temple--one of this country's most important populist political critics--relates the globalized economy to our lives, explains why it threatens world depression, and points to reforms that can lead to economic growth.
