People First Economics looks at what recent events mean and could mean for us all. It's about economics—and about a lot more. It's about radical changes that are social, moral, ecological, and philosophical, too—changes that are already beginning to happen.

In a series of plain-speaking contributions, David Ransom brings together exciting and radical activists and thinkers, such as Naomi Klein, Walden Bello, Noam Chomsky, Michael Albert, George Monbiot, Patrick Bond, Ann Pettifor, and Susan George among many others, to set the agenda for "economic democratization."

People First Economics covers everything from the green revolution and feminist economics to what we can learn from history and a ten-step economic detox. In doing so, it provides the opportunity to rethink what really matters in life.
