Over the course of the last two decades, governments implemented a fundamental shift in mainstream economic policy and ushered in a period of globalization. These changes, which are commonly known as “neo-conservative,” were resisted by a range of social forces, from workers to farmers, in the universities and on the streets.
Globalization, Neo-Conservative Policies, and Democratic Alternatives is a unique edited collection of new papers by a group of internationally renowned political economists. They evaluate the failures of neo-conservative economic policies around the globe, and explore the alternative budgeting movement as an approach to economic policy making that seeks to replace the prevailing orthodoxy with a democratic alternative. Rigorous in its formulations, accessible in its style, and provocative in its approach, this book is a timely and important anthology of essays.
