Throughout, the text encourages a critical approach demonstrating the diversity of market economies.

Considers the discordant state of the capitalist world in the 1990s, drawing on both green and socialist economies. Altvater's central concern is to examine the claims made for the market, both in the history of capitalism and in the globalized market economy.
