How the World Works (Real Story (Soft Skull Press))

Noam Chomsky


According to The long island Times, Noam Chomsky is “arguably an important highbrow alive.” yet he isn’t effortless to learn . . . or not less than he wasn’t until eventually those books got here alongside. made of intensively edited speeches and interviews, they provide whatever now not came across at any place else: natural Chomsky, with each striking concept and penetrating perception intact, added in transparent, obtainable, reader-friendly prose.

Published as 4 brief books within the well-known Real Story series—What Uncle Sam relatively Wants; The filthy rich Few and the stressed Many; Secrets, Lies and Democracy; and The universal Good—they’ve jointly offered nearly 600,000 copies.

And they proceed to promote yr after yr after 12 months simply because Chomsky’s principles develop into, if something, more correct as time is going by means of. for instance, 20 years in the past he mentioned that “in 1970, approximately ninety% of overseas capital used to be used for exchange and long term investment—more or much less efficient things—and 10% for hypothesis. through 1990, these figures had reversed.” As we all know, hypothesis persisted to extend exponentially. We’re paying the fee now for now not heeding him them.
