In seven chapters, Stan Duncan explains the "rules" and general practices of transnational corporations and global lending institutions such as the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. He also addresses specific issues such as third-world debt, NAFTA, and immigration. A very helpful chapter on coffee explains now the entire global system works and how it has entrapped the poor and led to injustice. The book concludes on a more reflective note as the author turns to scripture and Christian teaching to show how this system of economic globalization that penetrates today's world fails to reflect God's will for justice for all. This accessible text combines description, explanation, and analysis, and both illustrates highlights major points throughout with anecdotes and stories.
