Praise

“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
