About Global Research Hosts

Award winning author and economics professor Michel Chossudovsky is Director of the Centre for Research on Globalization, Montreal, which hosts the critically acclaimed website: www.globalresearch.ca.

Michel Chossudovsky has taught at universities and academic institutions in North America, Western Europe, Latin America, Asia and the Pacific. He has undertaken field-research in all major regions of the developing World and has traveled to over 100 countries.

“It was as a young visiting professor at the Catholic University in Santiago, Chile, that Chossudovsky’s interest in “economic repression” was first pricked. Augusto Pinochet’s military junta, which overthrew Salvador Allende in 1973, quadrupled the price of bread and introduced other measures that would now be referred to as “a structural adjustment program.”  Chossudovsky set out, with a doctor, to study the malnourishment resulting from the bread price hike. He wound up with a paper that held the Pinochet regime responsible not only for conventional forms of political repression but for “economic repression” that impoverished three-quarters of Chile’s population. Since then he has documented the purposeful impoverishment of people in dozens of countries.” (Juliet ONeill, The Ottawa Citizen)

Michel Chossudovsky has also worked for several United Nations organizations on missions to Latin America and sub-Saharan Africa and has acted as adviser to governments of developing countries.

He is an active member of the Canadian antiwar movement and has written extensively on US and allied war plans in the Balkans and the Middle East.

He is the author of several international best sellers including The Globalization of Poverty and the New World Order (2003) and America’s “War on Terrorism” (2005) and more than 500 articles. His writings have been translated into more than 25 languages. He is also a contributor to the Encyclopaedia Britannica.
