QUERIES N°4 - THE NEXT GLOBAL DEAL
The disastrous consequences of the recent financial, economic and social crisis exposed the bankruptcy of today’s’ world order, dictated by a neo-liberal ideology. Its obvious inability to respond to global challenges makes it inadequate for the 21st century. Realizing this, one needs to call for a new, feasible agenda. For progressives this call is both a challenge and a chance to present our NEXT Global Deal.
The NEXT Global Deal opens with forewords by Ernst STETTER and Joseph STIGLITZ. The articles have been written by outstanding politicians, stakeholders and academics who all met to discuss these issues in-depth at the FEPS-IPD Conference (Washington D.C., October 2010). The echoes of this memorable debate can be found in the closing chapter of this edition.
