The peace economy
The peace economyJohan Galtung advances ideas for peace in society and economics.
In his latest book “Peace Economics”, Johan Galtung lays out a new way to approach the global economic system. He calls the current system a “killing economy” that abuses workers and proposes building an economy that promotes peace over war.
