The Future in the Balance: Essays on Globalization and Resistance


Third World activist and scholar Walden Bello is one of the most astute and ardent critics of the international financial institutions. His new collection of essays, The Future in the Balance, tells the truth about the World Trade Organization, International Monetary Fund and the World Bank–and their grip on the Third World.



By Walden Bello, Edited with a preface by Anuradha Mittal, Food First Books 2001

The essays in The Future in the Balance show how a world has been created where the poor are left to meet their needs in a skyrocketing free market, and protectionism and cronyism exists for banks and corporations. Bello shatters the myths of development as prescribed by these institutions and offers the possibility of another world based on fairness and justice.
