Transnational Institute: Where has all the money gone?

People have been literally robbed over the last thirty years as money has moved up from labour to capital. And as people have less money to spend, we are constantly in a crisis of overproduction.

Susan George talks to Armin Thurnher, Wiener Stadtgespräch 11, 27 October 2009

Susan George, TNI fellow, President of the Board of TNI and honorary president of ATTAC-France [Association for Taxation of Financial Transaction to Aid Citizens]

Susan George is one of TNI's most renowned fellows for her long-term and ground-breaking analysis of global issues. Author of fourteen widely translated books, she describes her work in a cogent way that has come to define TNI: "The job of the responsible social scientist is first to uncover these forces [of wealth, power and control], to write about them clearly, without jargon... and take an advocacy position in favour of the disadvantaged, the underdogs, the victims of injustice."
