The New Rulers of the World


The New Rulers of the World

John Pilger, 2001

Award winning investigative journalist John Pilger investigates today's global economy and shows us the ever increasing divide between rich and poor has never been so great.

'The New Rulers of the World' refers to multinational cartels as well as the governments and global organisations that serve them such as the IMF, World Bank and WTO; institutions which decide the fates of billions of people.

Pilger shows how the West has increased its control over poor countries since the decline of colonialism through deceptive means using such global organisations masquerading as altruistic insitutions dedicated to human development.
