    1. In this book Jeff Faux of the Economic Policy Institute, who was heavily involved in the fight against NAFTA in the early 1990's, surveys the state of the US and global economies in light of the trade liberalization of the past couple of decades. Not surprisingly he finds that trade has benefited corporate CEOs and investors at the expense of workers. This has been accomplished, he argues, not only by moving production to countries with low-cost labor but by outlawing individual countries from p [...]


    2. Faux is not an academic--he is an anti-globalization activists although he would not be found in the streets of Seattle or Toronto during an archetypal clash between police and demonstrators as the G-8 comes to town. The story he tells isn't new--finance capital is loyal to itself and not to any of the states in which it may have branches. Risks have been socialized and profits privatized throughout the world and there is little ultimate difference between the privatization of the Mexican teleph [...]


    3. تلك هي الكتب التي لا تلقى رواجا لدى قارئنا العربي، كما يليق بأمة مهزومة تدعي رغبة في التقدم ولا تسعى إليه بغير خلع المسميات المستعارة على القصائد الركيكة!ربما لا يكون الكتاب على خطى كتب مثل "عقيدة الصدمة" أو "انهيار الرأسمالية" أو "قاتل اقتصادي"، يبدو لي أقرب لنوعية "التسعينات [...]


    4. The financial elites of various countries have more in common with each other than they do with the citizens of their own country. So their activities are geared toward furthering the interests of that class even if it is to the detriment of their own country. If it goes belly up, they can just move elsewhere and leave the little people to deal with the wreckage.


    5. Not to worry! Based upon the title of Jeff Faux’s book, you need not assume that he is calling for any global war between the economic classes. No, not at all. He is merely reporting that the transnational elite are already waging the war and they are winning. What seems to be in agreement with Freeland’s book “The Plutocrats,” Faux is saying that the transnational elites do not restrict themselves to supporting the national interests of their home country (nor of their business or finan [...]


    6. Ouch. The main idea here is that the wealthy elite of different nations used to be pitted against each other in the struggle for financial dominance and control; as a result, they needed to ally with the labor forces in their respective nations in order to successfully compete with one another. But not anymore. Technology allows the global elite to ally with each other against the power of labor throughout the world, enriching themselves at the expense of those who work and are now pitted agains [...]


    7. choice quote from this fine book:Introduction, p.4 “Although there are some substantial differences between the core leadership of the Democratic and Republican parties on domestic matters, and some tactical differences on foreign policy, the two have worked hand in hand to help so-called American corporations disconnect themselves from their obligations to the American people. Led by Robert Rubin, the Clinton administration used the economic instruments of free trade, financial deregulation , [...]


    8. A very important book to read Years ago I read global reach where this Neo conservative plan was laced out. One chapter that really hit me was called the Latinamericanization of north America. this books explains how parties put in power by the center left made globalization easier. who do you vote for? these corporations are getting away with murder at the livelihood of the middle-class. Canada waz mostly middle-class. This book's solutions do not seem likely.The problem is not the extremists r [...]


    9. Have followed Jeff Faux for years. My copy of "The Global Class War" is peppered with so many flags to mark the "good stuff," I'd have done better to put a Post-it flag on the cover. It's all "good stuff."



    10. Can't wait to read this, sounds like it will have actual data and info to understand explicitly and consciously what I have felt to be true at a gut level for a long time.


    11. Outlines globalization's negative exploitative aspects. Perfectly demonstrates the cycle of wealth consolidation and how it perpetuates, by the end you'll depise people with giraffe money.
