The Bush Agenda

Invading the World, One Economy at a Time

€ 20.64

This is the first book to expose Bush Administration's radical economic agenda for global domination, a plan more extreme, unilateral, and audacious than any of its predecessors, a plan that has created the greatest level of violent opposition to America and Americans in recent history. What is Bush's "free trade"? It's an economic model that argues that by removing restrictions on multinational corporations, these companies will be freed to become engines of economic growth in countries around the world, but in fact bring vast wealth of a small number of global elites while entire populations suffer dislocation, poverty and violence, creating a perfect Petri dish for breeding terrorists. This book addresses the history of U.S. economic relations throughout the world over the past 25 years, the key role of U.S. corporations, and the larger Bush economic agenda and what the potential impact of this agenda will be on the US and the world. Using Naomi Klein's "No Logo" and Eric Schlosser's "Fast Food Nation" as models, "The Bush Agenda" is based on hard analytic fact and presented so that it is not only persuasive, but highly engaging and entertaining to a broad audience.
