It told me a lot that I already know. It does not give any suggestions to what needs to be done differently. It constantly bashes the global economy and does nothing to at least give some recognition of what was done that has helped developing countries. The book is structuralist which is great since I am one too, but does not suggest anything to be done differently it just rants and accuses policy and institutions. I had to make my own ideas of what could be different. That is fine, but you as ...more

I'm not going to rate this because I read it for my Politics of Globalization class and to be honest I skim read most of it. The only things I really remember are that it was that it was full of conspiracy theories and propaganda.

Very informative. Deals with neoliberalism and the indebting of countries to the International Monetary Fund. Outlines how countries are then opened up to the "free market" for exploitation by capitalists.
The book is not written so much in a story format but in an informational format. However, it is interesting and required reading for anyone interested in economics, the recent Greek situation as well as the Detroit, Michigan bankruptcy.

Had to read it for class. Absolutely awful and barely an academic source. Chossudovsky cherry-picks data and makes sweeping generalizations based on his misinformed opinion. The case studies are quick and dirty, and his thesis is misaligned with the book’s content. He’s looking to blame the world’s problems on institutions, even though things are so much more complex than that. Also, he didn’t even write a conclusion - bizzare.

Dark side of NWO

This book provides amazing and mind boggling information for democratic global citizens, well researched and edited in most recent history.
