Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Adbusters is a not-for-profit, reader-supported, advertising-free, 70,000-circulation magazine that lays bare anticapitalist, pro-environment concerns through incisive philosophical essays, activist commentary, and advertising spoofs. Past and present contributors include Slavoj Zizek, David Graeber, Simon Critchley, Michael Hardt, Antonio Negri, Matt Taibbi, Bill McKibben, Douglas Rushkoff, Jonathan Cook, and Chris Hedges.

Kalle Lasn is the founder of the Adbusters Media Foundation and Powershift Advertising Agency. An internationally known, award winning documentarist, he is the editor of Adbusters magazine who, along with senior editor Micah White and their 90,000-strong global network of activists were the instigators of the first #OccupyWallStreet event on September 17, 2011.


"Adbusters magazine and its editor Kalle Lasn have been at the forefront of the global resistance to capitalism exemplified by the Occupy movement. Their new book, Meme Wars: the Creative Destruction of Neoclassical Economies, uses startling images to back up its hard-hitting points. " 
The Guardian

"The essays in Meme Wars are engrossing, exciting even. This book compels us to rethink our approaches to economics by offering critique after critique of the way the subject is written about and taught, indeed of the very conceptual categories we use when we debate about how goods are produced and distributed, services provided and resources extracted. By turns wonky and visionary, Meme Wars ... brings together a group of accomplished writers, most of them academics, who approach the world’s economic, environmental and social problems in ways one seldom finds in mainstream journalism or economics departments." 
Literary Review of Canada

Meme Wars should be required reading for anyone wants to challenge their ideas about the modern economy and the people who champion it.” 
Meme Wars is a textbook for a new way of thinking, Straight.com

"Thought-provoking and creative" 
—Julie Nelson, author of Beyond Economic Man: Feminist Theory and Economics 

"Meme Wars should be required reading for anyone wants to challenge their ideas about the modern economy and the people who champion it."
—Miranda Nelson, The Georgia Straight

"Meme Wars
is a kind of anti-textbook, which uses words and images to explore the dark spaces that surround conventional economic theory."
—David Orrell -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Künstlerisch aufregend und intellektuell herausfordernd - ein Manifest, das vor revolutionärer Energie nur so strotzt! Dieses Werk war mehr als überfällig. Es ist eine verdauliche und bildreiche Version der Gesellschaftskritik und Lösungsansätze, welche große Schreiberlinge wie David Graeber, Charles Eisenstein und Ted Trainer in dicken (auch sehr empfehlenswerten) Wälzern präsentieren.

Ich habe dieses Buch regelrecht verschlungen. Gibt Kraft und macht Hoffnung! Ein großer Dank an Kalle Lasn und das Adbusters-Team.

HASH(0x96bb6738) von 5 Sternen Graphics are good, message is easy to understand 10. Dezember 2012
Von Linda - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Simple economics with great graphics. I am an economist who has been sceptical of neoclassical apologetics for what I consider to be a regime of corporate supremacy. This book asks the right questions in a simple manor.
I hope it inspires readers to read Veblen, Marx, Bowles, Magdoff, Ayres, George, Polyani, and many more.

Von edward d. firth - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

this is the man from Vancouver (Canada) who was the force behind the Occupy Movement! unless you watch a lot of the Moyer Report on American PBS, you really don't realize that probably 100 companies run the world, and the government and the banks are a revolving door of employment, in seven figures. the 99% of us who vote and pay taxes, have not a prayer of changing the enviroment, our bettering our lives without some form of civil disobedience. this book and Adbusters magazine are a beginning to give us information that otherwise would be almost impossible to obtain easily. maybe we should realize that economists were created to make weathermen look good, and start getting this profession into the 21st century, especially in our teaching institutions! this book format is very different from the norm, and what is says is very thought provoking!

HASH(0x96debf9c) von 5 Sternen interesting, though i think misses the mark 11. Januar 2013
Von John S - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
i actually like the artwork in this book more than the text. ha. i understand the underlying argument that the book is trying to make (it's essentially a compilation of essays from several different authors)....... but the authors sometimes kinda go on and on, without purpose in their writing. it's not succinct writing. it's not structured. you can read a few pages of the essays and just have a general sense of yeah ok, they don't like how things are, but the thoughts are too scattered. ........ for a book that is trying to usurp neoclassical economics, it seems to do more trash talk than actually offer a clear, concise idea of what they have in mind to replace it. and this is coming from someone that is very empathetic to the cause.

2nd edition: guys, you need to come up with a clear structure for what your arguments are. lay them out nice and simple. the way it's written now, you don't provide a CLEAR compelling argument that's gonna win over any converts.

Von C.J. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

Kalle Lasn gets it right, as usual. His book "Culture Jam" was a revelatory experience for me when it was written. "Meme Wars" builds on his basic premise, that we ruin our lives and the planet consuming too many unnecessary things that we don't need. Our obsession with acquiring the most 'toys' is disastrous for the economy, the planet, and our own mental and emotional health. No one says it more succinctly, and in such a readable way. The book is also beautiful to look at.

HASH(0x96afad14) von 5 Sternen Critical reading for any reasonable path forward 3. Juli 2013
Von P. van Winkle - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book is critical reading for any survivable, collective path forward. Over the last hundred years, Economics' mission was to support mass debt expansion, by answering the question: "How can we create and expand 'growth', endlessly, to 'preserve our way of life'" That wasn't just erroneous, religiously-inclined, false thinking, it was dangerous. Economists all then have sought to replicate the short-term `success' of developed countries, and to get less developed countries into this program of non-reality.

The results? An exponentially growing list of social sicknesses and maladies associated with relying on markets and consumptions of all kinds, to solve problems: epidemics of obesity, mental illness, stress, inequality, time-sucking, poverty, and vast, unchecked pollution. (Add information pollution to that list. Citizens of the developed world are now exposed to roughly 3,000 ads a day, adding to public health crises in the same way that asbestos, DDT, lead and cigarette smoke did.)

The neo-classical economics relied on and taught have little to do with reality, and it shows - plainly.

We're now experiencing the mass and deadly symptoms of financial addictions to "endless growth" programs on a finite planet, and it's time for an intervention. This book adds immense insight to finding ways out of the insanity pushed, ingrained and taught for several generations. Even the London School Of Economics (Mick Jagger's alma mater) endorses it. Five stars. Read it, don't just look at the pictures like the one reviewer did.
