The Global Economic Crisis: Systemic Failures and Multilateral Remedies
Publisher: UNCTAD 2009
Number of pages: 80
The report highlights three specific areas in which the global economy experienced systemic failures. While there are many more facets to the crisis, UNCTAD examines here some of those that it considers to be the core areas to be tackled immediately by international economic policy-makers because they can only be addressed through recognition of their multilateral dimensions. The report investigates three interrelated issues of importance to developed and developing countries alike, and proposes measures to address the systemic failures they have entailed.

The aim of the book is to point out the causes of today's economic turmoil and how it can be solved. The road toward solution lies not in any remedy from the past. Rather, it lies with a society where all support each other in mutual guarantee.

The depression which set in after 1929 was the worst economic disaster in American history. It was aggravated by the acute world crisis, a major catastrophe of capitalism. The revival, because of its speculative character, did not lead to recovery.
by Peter Barnes - Berrett-Koehler Publishers
Barnes' idea is that we need to use a 3rd institution to develop a better form a capitalism that takes into account natural resources that are used and not accounted for. This is needed, because government has failed to do a good job in this regard.
