PostCapitalism: A Guide to Our Future

Paul Mason
Tue 07 June 2016,

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. Are we now on the brink of a change so big, so profound, that this time capitalism itself has reached its limits? Paul Mason shows how a revolution in information technology has the potential to reshape our familiar notions of work, production and value, and to destroy an economy based on markets and private ownership. He explains how we now have the chance to create a more socially just and sustainable global economy. Moving beyond capitalism, he argues, is no longer a utopian dream.
