The need for maximum labor flexibility in order to ensure competitiveness has replaced the old aim of making workers into productive allies and mass consumers. Jacques B. Gelinas' vivid text picks out the key elements of this new economic landscape, and explains why the owners and CEO's of this new transnational economy no longer need their traditional alliance with the state and the middle classes. He depicts governments, spellbound by the market, abandoning their obligations to defend civil society.
