Derber examines the foundations of corporate globalization, and proposes alternatives to that model of economics. The book explains that globalization isn't the problem per se, but rather the basis for that globalization. Globalization can be made to serve the people of earth if it is based on a more democratic model. Derber offers some steps we can take as citizens to begin moving our economic system in that direction. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312306709, Paperback)

Has globalization failed us? The promises of economic stability, increased prosperity, and cultural cooperation seem more like a pipe dream than ever before. But rather than stop globalization, Charles Derber challenges us to rewrite its rules in order to fulfill its potential as an agent of democracy and global harmony. In this provocative and optimistic work, one of the first examinations of globalization after September 11, 2001, Derber argues that only a democratic cure--begun at the grassroots level--will end global terror and economic insecurity. People Before Profit provides an essential understanding of our world economy as well as a practical guide for building a stable and more equitable global community.

"The issue of globalization - its promises, and more often, its shortcomings - commands worldwide attention. Recent events illuminate the dark side of globalization and underscore the urgent need to redesign its basic principles. The terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, are one in a series of crises that have shaken the foundations of the global order. The rise of strong antiglobalization movements around the world, the deteriorating global economy, including America's own economic turbulence, and an ever-growing distrust of powerful multinational corporations in the face of catastrophic mismanagement, symbolized by Enron and WorldCom, dramatize the failure of globalization. For a safe and economically secure future, Charles Derber argues in People Before Profit that we must debunk the myths about our current form of corporate-led globalization and reorient ourselves on a more democratic path."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
