Thomas Pogge, Politics as Usual: What Lies Behind Pro-Poor Rhetoric

Abstract

An initial glance at Thomas Pogge‟s most recent work gives the impression that it is business as usual for the cosmopolitan philosopher. He continues his ardent criticism of the current international system‟s causal relationship with global poverty and the abject failure to better the conditions of the world‟s poorest persons. Yet, Politics as Usual is more than a restatement. Indeed, it has alarming implications for those holding cosmopolitan principles of socioeconomic justice.
