He calls for the abolition of the IMF and asks: "Why not seek other formulas and admit that humankind is able to organize itself and its destiny in a more rational and humane manner?" Fidel Castro also discusses* the danger of a new stock market collapse* U.S. cultural hegemony* NATO's war in Yugoslavia* US "war on drugs" in Latin America* the need to democratize the United Nations* the catastrophe of capitalist reform in Russia* the current state of US-Cuba relations In the face of the "new world order," Fidel comments: "To endure the global struggle between the super-powers is bad. To live under total hegemonic domination by one of them is worse." "Library shelves are full of books touting the wonders of globalization; perhaps there should also be room there for a dissenting voice. This volume collects speeches and written messages by Castro over the last two years... Castro has no objection to globalization; in fact, he considers it inevitable. What he objects to is the imposition of neoliberal capitalism in the name of globalization." --"Booklist"Read Less
