Basic Black

A production of  
  

Jon Jeter

"The essence of this book revealed itself to me over the course of thirty years in a series of epiphanies…” says Jon Jeter in describing the process of writing his new book, Flat Broke in the Free Market: How Globalization Fleeced Working People.

Jeter has traveled across four continents documenting the stories of ordinary folks whose lives and livelihood are colliding with the rise of globalization. Publisher’s Weekly describes Flat Broke in the Free Market as “an eloquent, no-holds-barred indictment of globalization…”   

Flat Broke is a piercing examination of the impact of global economic policy, yet it also offers hope for the future of working people by looking at international movements that have forced a re-thinking of the goals of globalization.

Jon Jeter was the Washington Post bureau chief for southern African from 1999 to 2003 and the Post’s bureau chief for South America from 2003 to 2004. He was twice a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize.
