The need for maximum labor flexibility in order to ensure competitiveness has replaced the old aim of making workers into productive allies and mass consumers. Jacques B. Gelinas' vivid text picks out the key elements of this new economic landscape, and explains why the owners and CEO's of this new transnational economy no longer need their traditional alliance with the state and the middle classes. He depicts governments, spellbound by the market, abandoning their obligations to defend civil society.

Jacques B. Gelinas's previous book, Freedom from Debt - What the Critics Said: 'This book provides development NGOs, students and advocates of renewed practices of genuine cooperation - North and South - with a coherent critique of the Bretton-Woods- oriented development system on the one hand, and a feasible alternative illuminated by successful experiences of self-conceived, self-financed and self-managed development on the other. It is a highly accessible message of common sense and hope that is beginning to shake the old developmentalist ideology and which refutes with hard facts dogmas of globalization.' - Forests, Trees and People 'An essential tool for anyone seeking an introduction to the problem of development aid' - L'Agora 'Lively and insightful, this book presents an excellent discussion and should be the bible of those involved in development.' - SAPEM 'Thought-provoking, clearly written, and free of jargon.' - Development Policy Review 'This is a good introductory work on a topic of much current debate.' - Choice
