Abstract

This paper provides a critique of the neoliberal arguments in defense of global capitalism. It deconstructs the arguments made by neoliberals like Norberg, Mandle and Bhagwati by drawing upon the writing of various altermunistas and critical theorists like David Schweikart. After deconstructing the neoliberals' defense capitalism, the paper criticizes its fundamental weaknesses concerning matters of global equity and the threat it poses to world ecology. It's a moral and ecological imperative that humans start exploring an alternative socio-economic model.
