It's time to prioritise the poor



28 October 2008

 

 
"Economic prosperity, still less the generation of capital, are not ends in themselves," says Sydney Law School's  Professor David Kinley.
 
"Rather, they are merely means necessary to achieve such ends as greater individual wealth, social welfare, national stability and global peace."
 
In an online news item on the University of Sydney's website, Professor Kinley outlines his argument for re-regulating global finance with the poor in mind, ahead of the release of his forthcoming book, Civilising Globalisation: Human Rights and the Global Economy, to be published by Cambridge University Press in early 2009.
