Freedom For Sale : How We Made Money and Lost Our Liberty, Paperback / softback Book

Freedom For Sale : How We Made Money and Lost Our Liberty Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Why do so many people around the world appear willing to give up freedoms in return for security or prosperity?

For the past 60 years it had been assumed that capitalism was intertwined with liberal democracy.

But what happens when both are undermined? Governments globally have drawn up a new pact with their peoples: repression is confined to the few who openly challenge the status quo.

The rest of the population can enjoy freedom to live more or less as they wish, and to make and spend their money.

This is the difference between public freedoms and private freedoms.

We choose different freedoms we are prepared to cede.

We all do it. Freedom for Sale will set a new agenda. It will crucially ask why so many intelligent and ambitious citizens around the world seemed prepared to sacrifice freedom of the press and freedom of speech in their quest for wealth.
