Who's World Order? Speech By Noam Chomsky On Our Nation's Economy

May 14, 1998
Story
WATCH FULL SHOW

Noam Chomsky is widely considered to be the leading dissident intellectual in this country. His research and information over the years have proved irrefutable. In all his writings since the Vietnam War, Chomsky has never once retracted a single piece of information. Yet you seldom if ever see him debating the finest minds in Washington on any of the major networks. He is almost never invited on National Public Radio or PBS. Undaunted, Chomsky goes on churning out books faster than any other political writer in this country. To have Chomsky’s most recent information is like an empowerment boost for those in the struggle for justice.

Tape:

  • Noam Chomsky’s most recent talk titled "Whose World Order—Conflicting Visions" examines the fairytale of the nation’s booming economy in this country. He gave it at Purdue University just a few weeks ago.
