Synopsis: If we follow the neoliberal script, we’re all consumers, happily salving our discontent in a hypermarket where money is the only language. For the majority of the people in the world, however, that image translates into a much less pleasant reality: a precarious and impoverished life.
Is there a way to break free of that worldview? Yes, says William K. Carroll, and Expose, Oppose, Propose shows how. Detailing the work over the past four decades of transnational alternative policy groups (TAPGs), Carroll shows how these think tanks have generated ideas and resources for resistance through dialogue with the social movements that are on the forefront of the battle for global justice. He offers close analyses of a number of groups, showing how each is distinct and autonomous, but he also pulls back to examine the larger framework in which all the groups operate, one that advocates and envisions true alternatives for global society.

Neoliberal capitalism positions us all as consumers in a hypermarket where money talks. For the majority of people around the globe, this translates as precarity and immiseration. But how can we break from this dominant ideological framework? Expose, Oppose, Propose details how, since the mid 1970s, transnational alternative policy groups (TAPGs) have functioned as think tanks of a different sort, generating resources for a globalization from below in dialogue with the critical social movements that are protagonists for global justice. Based on two years of intensive research, William Carroll not only provides a detailed examination of a variety of TAPGs - showing how each group is distinctive and autonomous in its vision, practical priorities, and ways of producing and mobilizing alternative knowledge - but also reveals how TAPGs form a master frame that advocates and envisages global justice and ecological wellbeing.
