About this title

Synopsis:

For several decades the World Bank and the major industrialized countries, under the banner of free trade, have been exporting capitalism and globalizing corporate power in the alleged interest of increasing prosperity (or reducing poverty) among so-called third-world nations. But, in fact, the poor are getting poorer, and the rich are getting richer in the global marketplace. Consequently, some critics see in this trend elements of a new colonialism or social Darwinism and have challenged the claim that the rising dominance of market economies and their insatiable need for exponential growth actually improves the condition of people or environments in undeveloped countries where they operate. In this anthology, six Latin-American authors examine the theoretical assumptions and principles of neoliberal economics (as advocated by Friedrich Hayek, Milton Friedman, Julian Simon and others) and discuss the political effect of those assumptions upon human rights, well-being, education, exploitation, and responsibility in the world, primarily in Latin America. (Live interviews of four of the six authors are included on the accompanying DVD.) These essays provide a greater awareness of the plight of many people in Latin America, a deeper understanding of the causes of poverty and cultural exclusion, and some proposed solutions to the problems of global injustice.

About the Author:

Editor Ricardo J. Gomez has been Professor of Philosophy at California State University (Los Angeles) since 1983 and visiting Professor at the University of Buenos Aires (Argentina). He also teaches graduate seminars in many other Latin-American universities. His areas of specialization include philosophy of science and technology, philosophy of mathematics, comtemporary philosophy, and Latin-American philosophy. This anthology is a result of his interest in and study of the normative content of the neoliberal economic paradigm and its practical effects on politics, business, education, labor, human rights and values, as well as the philosophical discussion of them in Latin America.
