“Too much of what passes as economic analysis is used to justify the status quo. This book provides absolutely the right diagnosis of globalisation. It tells it as it really is. ”

“In the unreal world of corporate spin and wars fought for fictitious reasons, Real World Economic Outlook, brought out by a group of engaged and rooted economists, gives a much-needed reality check about the mess we’re in and ways for getting out of it.”
