Lecture at the Berlin International Economics Congress, 4-7 February 2010.
The current crisis has exacerbated the effects of neoliberalism and hugely increased inequality, with money going from labour to capital.

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 finally..to take an advocacy position in favour of the disadvantaged, the underdogs, the victims of injustice."
