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 policymaking 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.
