The capitalist revolution in Latin America by Paul Craig Roberts( )

12 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 1,218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Turnaround, the authors show, is a mixed blessing for the United States. For if it provides us with a vast new market for our goods, it has also created a powerful new competitor for capital investment. To keep American and foreign capitalists investing in America, the government needs to make changes, which the authors outline in a provocative conclusion
The new color line : how quotas and privilege destroy democracy by Paul Craig Roberts( Book )

7 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 648 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The New Color Line, authors Paul Craig Roberts and Lawrence M. Stratton boldly challenge the affirmative action policies that have governed America for the past thirty years. The authors show that equality under the law has given way to legal privileges based on race and gender. Liberal society is being lost along with the presumption of goodwill that is the basis of democracy. The New Color Line offers an explanation for these ironic outcomes: judicial and regulatory edicts have taken the place of statutory law accountable to the people, and coercion has replaced persuasion. This happened because elites regarded democracy as the problem, not the solution

In the last chapter they document the failure of Western experts and pundits to create a true picture of the Soviet system
Alienation and the Soviet economy : the collapse of the socialist era : with a new introduction by Paul Craig Roberts( Book )

15 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first edition of this seminal book in 1971 pointed out the fatal defects of Marxist theory that would lead to the collapse of the Soviet economy. In this revised edition, Paul Craig Roberts examines how reality triumphed over Marxist theory and the implications for the future of Russia and eastern Europe. In 1971, Roberts created a firestorm among professional Sovietologists by proclaiming that the economies of the USSR and its East Bloc allies were doomed because their planned economies were, in reality, anything but planned. Expanding on his original ideas, Roberts demonstrates in this book the fatal shortcomings of Marxist economies, ranging from misallocation of resources to ersatz capitalistic concepts grafted onto a system that calls for production without regard to profit. Roberts argues that the economies of the nations emerging from the USSR's collapse must grasp the profound truths in this book if they are to become viable

The failure of laissez faire capitalism and economic dissolution of the West : towards a new economics for a full world by Paul Craig Roberts( Book )

8 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and Czech and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Former Wall Street Journal editor, and Assistant Secretary of the US Treasury Paul Craig Roberts book is a major challenge both to economic theory and to media explanations of the ongoing 21st century economic crisis. The one percent have pulled off an economic and political revolution. By offshoring manufacturing and professional service jobs, US corporations destroyed the growth of consumer income, the basis of the US economy, leaving the bulk of the population mired in debt. Deregulation was used to concentrate income and wealth in fewer hands and financial firms in corporations "too big to fail," removing financial corporations from market discipline and forcing taxpayers in the US and Europe to cover bankster losses. Environmental destruction has accelerated as economists refuse to count the exhaustion of nature's resources as a cost and as corporations impose the cost of their activities on the environment and on third parties who do not share in the profits. This is the book to read for those who want to understand the mistakes that are bringing the West to its knees."--Publisher description
The police state( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When governments start to fail financially, they usually respond by doing two things: they start wars abroad to grab resources and wealth (Iraq anyone?) and they turn on their own citizens to try and keep what little wealth they have left "locked in". They also try and quell dissent as things get ugly and the people become unruly. In other words, they close down their open society and turn it into a police state. While many critics say that this could never happen in countries like America, Britain or France, these exclusive interviews with the experts reveal that it already has -- and it's only going to intensify. The Patriot Act, HR 1995, the weakening of habeas corpus, FEMA camps, RFID, a compromised mainstream media, free speech zones, micro chipping, electronic voting, the Military Commissions Act, private police forces, the destruction of the rule of law, and more anti-freedom developments are already in place. As the world's leading powers lose more and more wealth and things start to really spin out of control in the years to come, the powers-that-be now have the laws in place to close us down and kill our freedom. Forever. These never-before-seen interviews with Alex Jones, David Icke, Mark Crispin Miller, Mickey Z, Brian Kraft, Naomi Wolf, David McAlvany, Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, Doug Casey, Ken Klein and G. Edward Griffin will help you realize that individual freedom is only one more catastrophe away from being stolen from you
The end of the world as we know it? by Marcel Theroux( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Celebrated author Naomi Wolf ("The end of America") shows you how the U.S. Government is currently closing down our free society and quickly moving toward a fascist state. Joining Wolf in these exclusive, never-before-seen interviews are Professor Mark Crispin Miller, scholar David McAlvany, Paul Craig Roberts, Alex Jones, Mickey Z, David Icke, Doug Casey and G. Edward Griffin. As true patriots, the guests partake in a disturbing but engaged study of the many developments that are threatening to turn the American dream of freedom into a national nightmare involving: no fly lists, the arbitrary detention of America citizens and patriots, thought crime, thought police, police use of high-tech weaponry on its own citizens, unconstitutional arrests, torture, false confessions and martial law. This part also features an extended exclusive interview with Doug McIntyre, a regular guest on The Lou Dobb's show on CNN. Mr. McIntyre discusses off shoring and globalism and offers up an insightful commentary on how apathy and failure in education has fractured our American identity and forced our culture to the brink of self-destruction

The neoconservative threat to world order : Washington's perilous war for hegemony by Paul Craig Roberts( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This stellar collection of Paul Craig Roberts essays dating from 2013 explores the extreme dangers in Washington's imposition of vassalage on other countries and Washington's resurrection of distrust among nuclear powers, the very distrust that Reagan and Gorbachev worked to eliminate. Roberts explains how the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 removed the only check on Washington's ability to act unilaterally. The United States' position as the sole remaining superpower led to the euphoric proclamation of 'the end of history' and to Washington's presumption of the victory of 'American democratic-capitalism' over all other systems. The neoconservatives became entrenched in successive American administrations, both Republican and Democratic. Their ideology of US global hegemony - the doctrine that no other power will be allowed to arise that could constrain US unilateral action - has become a foundational premise of US foreign policy and has led to reckless intervention in Ukraine and an irresponsible assault on Russian national interest. In pursuit of hegemony, Washington has expanded NATO to Russia's border, instigated 'color revolutions" in former constituent parts of the Soviet Union, announced a 'pivot to Asia' to encircle China, orchestrated a coup in Ukraine, demonized Putin, and imposed warlike sanctions against Russia. These reckless and irresponsible actions have brought back the risk of nuclear war. This succession of events has impelled Roberts - following an illustrious career in government, journalism and academia - to perform the clarifying function abandoned by the mainstream media of examining the agendas at work and the risks entailed. His insightful commentary is followed all over the world. In February 2015, Roberts was invited to address a major International conference in Moscow hosted by Institutes of the Russian Academy of Sciences and Moscow State Institute of International Relations, where he delivered the address which is the title of this book. In Roberts' assessment, Washington's drive for hegemony is not only unnecessary but unrealistic and filled with peril for Americans and the world at large. This book is a call to awareness that ignorance and propaganda are leading the world toward unspeakable disaster."--Publisher's description
How America was lost : from 9/11 to the police/warfare state by Paul Craig Roberts( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Even as the view of America as a rogue state consolidates abroad, Americans appear largely bystanders at the spectacle of their government running amok. People forget the myriad instances of their government's flouting of the Constitution and international legal norms-- if ever they were aware of them in the first place--accepting to live in the increasingly pernicious new normal with little protest. This remarkable anthology of columns documents and reminds us of the extraordinary developments that, in their accumulation, have led to the destruction of accountable and moral government in the US. Few American commentators have cut more clearly through the deepening deceit, hypocrisy and outright criminality that has infested official Washington since 9/11 than Paul Craig Roberts. His scathing critique sheds much-needed light on the country's impending nightmare-economic collapse, internal repression, ongoing wars, and rising rejection by friends and foes alike. America's fate was sealed when the public and the anti-war movement bought the government's 9/11 conspiracy theory. This defining event of our time, which has launched the US on interminable wars of aggression and a domestic police state, is a taboo topic for investigation in the media. Trillion dollar wars have created financing problems for Washington's deficits, threatening the dollar's role as world reserve currency, and putting Social Security and Medicare on the chopping block. These protections are called entitlements as if they are some sort of welfare that people have not paid for in payroll taxes all their working lives. With over 21 per cent unemployment, with American jobs, GDP, and technology having been given to China and India, with war being Washington's greatest commitment, with the dollar over-burdened with debt, with civil liberty sacrificed to the bogus war on terror, the liberty and prosperity of the American people have been thrown into the trash bin of history. The militarism of the U.S. and Israeli states, and Wall Street and corporate greed, will now run their course. How America Was Lost marks Roberts as one of the most incisive and courageous moral commentators in America today."--Publisher description
