Lugano

'In this satire, a summit on preserving the capitalist order comes to some disturbing conclusions as it follows the logic of capitalism ad infinitum.' --Washington Post

‘With acid wit and somber truths, The Lugano Report brilliantly portrays, through the eyes of its imagined but all too realistic planners, a world that may be heading for deep trouble.’ --Noam Chomsky

‘A brilliant, terrifying book which should be on the beside table of every policy maker in the West.’--Victoria Brittain

‘Susan George’s intimate knowledge of the bureaucratic mindset means that the book works superbly as a satire – following the example of Swift’s Modest Proposal – but her greater aim is to show that there are viable alternatives to this nightmare.’ --New Internationalist
