The other globalization

Decem­ber 1999, 40,000 demon­stra­tors invaded the streets of Seat­tle to denounce the World Trade Organ­i­sa­tion (WTO). In the past few years, the num­ber of protest move­ments has widely increased. A net­work of asso­ci­a­tions have been set up all over the planet; they are claim­ing for a dif­fer­ent glob­al­i­sa­tion with more human­ity and sol­i­dar­ity. In oppo­si­tion to the néolibéral ide­ol­ogy a new way of think­ing has started to come out. It is cen­tred around three main propo­si­tions: impos­ing a tax on Finan­cial spec­u­la­tion, can­celling the debt of the third world coun­tries and con­trol­ling the world mar­ket. We will lis­ten to the point of view of the het­ero­dox econ­o­mists and we will tell the always chang­ing story of these alter­na­tive networks.
