In this groundbreaking pamphlet, directors of Ralph Nader's Public Citizen group examine the first five years of the World Trade Organization's track record, demonstrating how the WTO aims to create a new global economic system that increases corporate profit with little regard for social and ecological impacts, or democratically enacted law. Wallach and Sforza make clear recommendations for altering the undemocratic course that the WTO imposes on democratic society.
An expert on trade policy and international commercial agreements, MICHELLE SFORZA's articles have appeared in the Nation, the Ecologist, and the Multinational Monitor, among other publications.
