As global financial markets come unhinged, as people lose their homes and
livelihoods, as the cost of war escalates, as workers and borders cross one
another, it is time to think about the economic system that structures our
choices and determines much of our life chances...

Join renowned scholar and economic geographer Richard Peet as he helps
navigate this often hidden world. An informed and rigorous thinker, Peet is
also a charismatic and trenchant critic of the rule of capital.
