This book “Your Money or Your Life” is written by Eric Toussaint. It is released in English by Pluto Press in the spring of 1999. Also, it will have already appeared in six other languages. French, Dutch, Spanish, German, Turkish and Greek. For a book that does not hide its hostility to the neo-liberal project. This in itself is a sign of renewed interest in global alternatives to mainstream thinking. Meetings organized to launch the book in many countries. The meetings have provided an opportunity to test the validity of the book’s main arguments. The results have been encouraging. Some significant events have taken place since the book was completed in May 1998. They provide the raw material necessary for fine-tuning the book’s main theses.
