In seven chapters, Duncan explains the "rules" and general practices of transnational corporations and global lending institutions such as the World Bank and the international Monetary Fund. He also addresses specific issues such as third-world debt, NAFTA and immigration. A very helpful chapter on coffee explains now the entire global system works and how it has entrapped the poor and led to injustice.

The book concludes on a more reflective note as the author turns to scripture and Christian teaching to show how this system of economic globalization that penetrates today's world fails to reflect God's will for justice for all.

Stan G. Duncan has degrees in economics and theology and has worked and published in both fields. He has lived and worked in Central America doing research on economic development projects and in this country as church pastor in three states. He has served on local or national boards for Bread for the World, Habitat for Humanity, and Jubilee USA, and for many years chaired the Economic Globalization Task Force of the United Church of Christ. He also leads annual delegations to developing countries with Equal Exchange and Witness for Peace. He has written a number of books and articles on religion and economic justice and has been an occasional commentator on NPR. He now lives in Quincy, Massachusetts, and is interim pastor of the United Parish of Fall River, Massachusetts.
