Will globalization soon be over? What do climate change and resource depletion mean for the dominant paradigm? Join Michael Lerner in conversation with social critic, activist, and author Jerry Mander. Jerry wrote such iconic books as Four Arguments for the Elimination of Television (1977), In the Absence of the Sacred (1991), and Paradigm Wars (2006).
Jerry is the founder and director of the International Forum on Globalization (IFG) a “think tank” and activist community with board and associate members on every continent. IFG has focused since 1994 on exposing the negative impacts of economic globalization on nature, human communities, equity, and democracy. IFG publishes reports, positions papers, and books, and also produces private and public education events, from private strategic seminars to large teach-ins. Best known among these were the huge events in Seattle in 1999 in opposition to the World Trade Organization. IFG has been generally credited with being among the leading international organizations that have defined, articulated and acted on a comprehensive critique of economic globalization.
