            'We need to organise politically to defend the weak, empower the many and prepare the ground for reversing the absurdities of capitalism.' - Yanis Varoufakis 'Capitalism over the past twenty-five years has been an incredible moral good.' - David Brooks The Munk debate on capitali...sm There is a growing belief that the capitalist system no longer works. Inequality is rampant. The environment is being destroyed for profits. In some western nations, life expectancy is even falling. Political power is wielded by wealthy elites and big business, not the people. But for proponents of capitalism, it is the engine of progress, not just making all of us materially better off, but helping to address everything from women's rights to political freedoms. We seem to stand at a crossroads: do we need to fix the system as a matter of urgency, or would it be better to hold our nerve?

            Published in 1997, this book is about the link between trade and the environment which has become a very important national issue for all countries, in particular, those countries which have been undergoing lengthy periods of trade and investment liberalization programmes recentl...y. This has also become an international issue of tremendous current interest given its implications on the global environment and trading system. International organizations such as WTO, OECD, the UN and regional trading arrangements such as NAFTA, EEC and APEC have been actively involved in the policy debate. Despite the critical importance of trade-environment issues, less is known about the linkages between the two. This book presents a New Zealand perspective as a case-study of global interest for two reasons: firstly, many countries, both developed and developing, are taking the New Zealand economic reforms as a model for restructuring their economies. Secondly, New Zealand is going to become a member of APEC (Asia Pacific Economic Co-operation), together with 17 other countries in the area by 2010 (developed countries) and 2020 (developing countries). The book is expected to contribute significantly to the current debate and to assist in the process of reconciliation of trade and environmental policies for sustainable development within the context of APEC integration.

            When it comes to trading in raw materials, there are no rules. Commodity traders make a living by supplying the world with raw goods like oil, grain and metal - no matter how war-torn, famine-stricken or corrupt the country of origin. These are the men who bought oil from Libyan ...rebels in the midst of the Arab Spring; who took sugar from the Cuban government at the height of the Cold War; who helped Saddam Hussein illicitly sell his resources to the west. It is an industry that affects us all, but whose workings have been deliberately concealed from our view. Now, two Bloomberg journalists tell the full, inside story of how raw materials are bought and sold in the twenty-first century. They risk everything to meet the tribe of billionaires responsible for keeping the planet stocked with raw materials, uncovering a world of big egos and even bigger pay cheques. And they travel the globe - from the oil fields of Kazakhstan, to the copper mines of the Congo, to the gleaming skyscrapers of New York - to recount the most shocking tales from this hidden world of multi-million pound deals. If you have ever felt uneasy about how petrol gets from the Middle East to your tank, or wondered where the metal in your phone comes from, this book offers the answers. It reveals a ruthless underbelly to the world economy - one that no consumer can afford to ignore.

            Capitalism is failing and the tools we are relying on to fix it - corporate social responsibility, divestment, impact investing, and government control - are only making things worse. -Chevron boasts about the $50 million per year it spends on renewable energy whilst it spends 20...0 times that on oil exploration -Goldman Sachs touts its 10,000 Women initiative but its board ranks 358th out of the Fortune 500 for gender diversity and women earn 55% less than men do on average By focusing on corporations rather than people, we've put our faith in empty trends and brand-focused window-dressing. Why should those responsible for our current crisis be trusted to fix it? In Accountable, authors Michael O'Leary and Warren Valdmanis offer a blueprint for everyone to take responsibility for using their economic power as consumers, as investors, as employees, and as voters to trigger a fundamental shift away from an economy that is unethical, unfair, and destructive to our environment and institutions. Their investigation cuts through the tired dogma of current economic thinking to reveal a hopeful truth: if we can make our corporations accountable to a deeper purpose, we can make capitalism both prosperous and good. Trenchant and gripping, this is an indispensable guide and call to action for citizens to take control of our economic power and hold corporations to a higher standard.
