"Alain Deneualt offers a look at what it means when a Canadian prime minister puts his private interests outside the laws he has been elected to apply. These sixty short theses lay bare the contradictions embodied in Paul Martin, the businessman and the politician, and those inherent in the emerging forms of economic globalization and the Canadian political system and its laws. Deneault delves beyond the superficial, albeit alarming, aspects of the Martin case to get at the heart of what political and economic power really mean in the age of globalization. He presents the Martin case as a symptom of a worldwide crisis of public ethics that goes far beyond the simple question of Martin's assets, and demonstrates that it is part of a global culture that increasingly allows the world's largest financial transactions to escape all forms of control, regulation and contribution to our national economies."--BOOK JACKET.Deneault, Alain is the author of 'Paul Martin & Companies ' with ISBN 9780889225381 and ISBN 0889225389.
