"In this unique volume from the World Public Forum Dialogue of Civilizations and the Social Science Research Council, some of the world's greatest minds--from Nobel Prize winners to long-time activists--explore what the prolonged instability of the so-called Great Recession means for our traditional understanding of how governments can and should function. Through interviews that are sure to spark lively debate, 22 Ideas to Fix the World presents both analysis of past geopolitical events and possible solutions and predictions for the future. The book surveys issues relevant to the U.S., Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. Speaking from a variety of perspectives, including economic, social, developmental, and political, the discussions here increase our understanding of what's wrong with the world and how to get it right. Interviewees explore topics like the Arab Spring, the influence of international financial organizations, the possibilities for the growth of democracy, the acceleration of global warming, and how to develop enforceable standards for market and social regulation"--Publisher description.

If these are truly the world's greatest "thinkers" humanity can pretty much hang it up now! The description tells us that several are Nobel prize-winning economists, yet (and according to the Nobel family) there isn't any Nobel prize in economics! There is a "Swedish Central Bank Prize in Economical Sciences in Memory of Nobel" which was never endowed by ANY member of the Nobel family! So the book begins under false premises..... No Michael Parenti, no Michael Hudson, no Michael Perelman (are great thinkers named Michael?), no great women thinkers? Forget this book.
