This is the updated second edition of the acclaimed anthology of radical writing about the economic crisis. People First Economics sees a historic opportunity to build a new model with humans rather than profit at its heart. The book has been expanded to include new contributions by Joseph Stiglitz, Walden Bello, and Jayati Ghosh.

Features the work of twenty three leading authors and experts including Noam Chomsky, Barbara Ehrenreich, Naomi Klein, and George Monbiot.

People First Economics takes a long, hard look at the mess globalized capitalism is in, and shifts the focus back to where it belongs - putting the needs of people and the environment first.

Vanessa Baird and David Ransom have gathered a passionate group of writers, activists, leaders and thinkers to seize this opportunity to replace deep-rooted problems with well-founded solutions.

This book is about more than economics. It's about radical changes that are social, moral and ecological, and it provides the opportunity to rethink what really matters in life.

David Ransom and Vanessa Baird are co-editors of New Internationalist magazine.
