About this Site

The purpose of this site is threefold; first to provide an Internet resource for those interested or concerned about the consequences of the global expansion of capitalism.

Second, to provide Web support for courses offered through the Anthropology Department at Plattsburgh State University, both on campus and on the Internet, that address social concerns. 

Finally, to provide a description of and support  materials for the book, Global Problems and the Culture of Capitalism (5th Edition) by Richard H. Robbins (Pearson Publishers, 2011).  The book describes the key elements of the culture of capitalism, examines its historical emergence, and analyzes some of the social, economic, and environmental consequences of its expansion.  A new concluding chapter on constructing the citizen-activist examines the policy changes necessary to address the problems discussed in the book.
