Postcapitalism - Paul Mason

£8.99

Description

What: Over the past two centuries or so, capitalism has undergone continual change - economic cycles that lurch from boom to bust - and has always emerged transformed and strengthened. Surveying this turbulent history, Paul Mason wonders whether today we are on the brink of a change so big, so profound, that this time capitalism itself, the immensely complex system by which entire societies function, has reached its limits and is changing into something wholly new.

At the heart of this change is information technology: a revolution that, as Mason shows, has the potential to reshape utterly our familiar notions of work, production and value; and to destroy an economy based on markets and private ownership - in fact, he contends, it is already doing so.

How: 'The most important book about our economy and society to be published in my lifetime' Irvine Welsh

Who: Paul Mason is an award-winning writer, broadcaster, and film-maker. Previously economics editor of Channel 4 News, his books includeWhy It's Kicking Off Everywhere: the New Global Revolutions; Live Working Die Fighting; and Rare Earth: A Novel.
    Why: We have hand picked a small but growing selection of books which we hope complement the fair trade products we stock. Inspiring, engaging and educational, we hope that these books can help move forward the discussion and debate around creativity, social justice and sustainability.
