THE FAILURE OF
LAISSEZ-FAIRE
CAPITALISM

by
Paul Craig
Roberts
"The Failure of Laissez Faire Capitalism is fearless. It transcends "In his
inimitable way, Roberts describes how the rhetorical patter talk about
free-markets is a cover story for the horror of an extractive asset-stripping
operation by publicly supported private banks and the governments that
they control."   
MICHAEL HUDSON  

"Clearly, this empirically based, theoretically challenging book is one of
the most important works of our time."

Richard Westra


“Westra brilliantly dissects the West-East sweep of over-
accumulated capital, allowing him to put financialization in
proper perspective. If you tire of circling around worsening
inequality, imperialism and other ‘idle-money’ symptoms of
economic crisis, and instead you want to drill down to find
root causes within capitalism’s putrefying remnants, as
Westra puts it, this is a superb guidebook.”

CAPITALISM AND
THE CRISIS OF
DEMOCRACY

Jerry Harris

Global capitalism has established the hegemony of the
market dominating both government and civil society. A
successor system must recognize the dialectical society.
"This is an excellent book, packed with meticulously-
documented facts, indicating the disastrous direction
that global capitalism, dominated by a new transnational
capitalist class, is taking us.  But, Harris argues,
“another world is possible”--a genuinely democratic,
economically viable, ecologically sustainable world.
Highly recommended!"
