Alternatives Economiques

Keynesian, critical of neoliberalism and sympathetic to anti-globalisation causes, Alter éco was founded in 1980 in response Margaret Thatcher's slogan "There is no alternative". Formed on cooperative principles, the monthly focuses on economic and social news and is not backed by any media group, surviving mainly on sales revenues.
