The Bush Agenda
Invading the World, One Economy at A TimeBook - 2006 | 1st ed.
Trade expert Juhasz explores the Bush Administration's plan to dominate the world through a corporate globalization agenda, first in Iraq, then the proposed U.S.-Middle East Free Trade Area, and ultimately as a cornerstone to the global Bush Doctrine. Bush's "free trade" economic model argues that, by removing restrictions on multinational corporations, these companies will become engines of economic growth around the world--but this will in fact bring vast wealth to a small number of global elites while entire populations suffer dislocation, poverty and violence, creating a perfect environment for breeding terrorists. The instruments for this takeover include such corporations as Bechtel, Lockheed Martin, ChevronTexaco, and Halliburton. Juhasz addresses U.S. economic relations over the past 25 years, the key role of U.S. corporations, and the larger Bush economic agenda and its potential impact. It concludes with specific alternatives to guide the U.S. on a more peaceful and sustainable course.--From publisher description.
