PostCapitalism : A Guide to Our Future From Paul Mason, the award winning Channelpresenter, Postcapitalism is a guide to our era of seismic economic change, and how we can build aequal society 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 newAt 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 Almost unnoticed, in the niches and hollows of the market system, whole swathes of economic life are changing Goods and services that no longer respond to the dictates of neoliberalism are appearing, from parallel currencies and time banks, to cooperatives and self managed online spaces Vast numbers of people are changing their behaviour, discovering new forms of ownership, lending and doing business that are distinct from, and contrary to, the current system of state backed corporate capitalismIn this groundbreaking book Mason shows how, from the ashes of the recent financial crisis, we have the chance to create asocially just and sustainable global economy Moving beyond capitalism, he shows, is no longer a utopian dream This is the first time in human history in which, equipped with an understanding of what is happening around us, we can predict and shape, rather than simply react to, seismic change Ce texte fait r f rence une dition puis e ou non disponible de ce titrePaul Mason is the award winning economics editor of ChannelNews His books include Why It s Kicking Off Everywhere the New Global Revolutions Compact, urgent, present tense, declarative and addictive Andy Beckett, Guardian Live Working Die Fighting Indispensable, brilliant Ken Loach longlisted for the Guardian First Book Award and Meltdown The End of the Age of Greed Lucid and sharply polemical Oliver Kamm, The Times Ce texte fait r f rence une dition puis e ou non disponible de ce titre
