Will capitalism destroy us or liberate us?Capitalism stands unrivalled as the economic system of our times. Since the collapse of the Soviet bloc, the world has become a stage for capital, and yet despite this dominance, capitalism is still not well-understood. This is a guide to thinking about capitalism, both as an ideology and as an economic system. It asks: what are the central, unchanging features of capitalism? How does capitalism vary from place to place and over time? Is capitalism a system which is � natural� and � free� ? Or is it unjust and unstable? And what about today� s global capitalism? Answers to these questions and many more are sought through analysing the life of this world-shaping idea and of the writings of leading thinkers such as Adam Smith, Milton Friedman, Francis Fukuyama, John Maynard Keynes and Karl Marx.
Paul Bowles is a Professor of Economics at the University of Northern British Columbia. He has published widely on both globalisation and East Asian development, and is author of National Currencies and Globalization: Endangered Species?(2007) and Globalization and Labour in China and India (2010).
