Agrofuels : big profits, ruined lives and ecological destruction by François Houtart( )

11 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,673 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since they were heralded as a key weapon in the fight against climate change, agrofuels have been criticised heavily for doing more harm than good due to deforestation and stealing agricultural land essential to farmers in the developing world. This book asks whether there is any place for agrofuels in a low-carbon future. François Houtart argues that the green potential of agrofuels has been wasted by businesses that put profits above environmental protection. This has led to the absurd situation where an energy source that should be sustainable actually increases human and ecological damage, simply due to the profit-maximising decisions of capitalists rather than a flaw in the concept of agrofuels. Students of development studies and environmental economics will find that this book offers an interesting new perspective on the future of energy."--Publisher website

The other Davos : the globalization of resistance to the world economic system by François Houtart( Book )

13 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Davos, the Swiss mountain resort, is host each year to the meetings of the World Economic Forum. To this informal gathering of those business and financial magnates with real economic power in the capitalist world are invited political leaders, cultural and religious organizations and even some trade unionists. The aim is to define global economic strategies." "Then one year, for the first time, a counter-Davos gathering brought together on the same date social movements representative of resistance and struggles across five continents. These movements were Brazil's Landless People's Movement, the Trade Union Congress of South Korea, the National Peasant Federation of Burkina Faso, the Quebec Women's Movement and the French Movement of the Unemployed. They met with a number of eminent economists, sociologists, historians and political scientists." "The aim was to demonstrate, by means of very different analyses and the presentation of concrete alternatives, their opposition to the dominant ideology of neo-liberalism and the dictatorship of capitalism over global society. This book is a compilation of these discussions."--Jacket

8 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in French and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le dilemme de l'identité et de la mondialisation culturelle se pose en Haïti, comme dans l'ensemble du monde. L'enjeu est constitué par les conditions sociales de la mondialisation culturelle qui est véhiculée par l'économie dominante à l'échelle de la planète. La culture se situe au centre d'une dynamique sociale. D'où la question de l'apport de chaque culture locale à une culture mondiale comme alternative à une simple intégration dans une culture mondialisée
