This "glorious and frightening read" (MT Magazine) examines capitalism's place as the universal social and economic order of our time. Now truly global, twenty-first century capitalism -- aided by extraordinary advances in technology and communication and by unfettered global financial markets -- has a speed, inevitability, and force that it has not had before. In Global Capitalism, now available in paperback, leading political and economic analysts have gathered to dissect this dangerous new world.

Hailed as a "must read" by Internet Business London, Global Capitalism analyzes the current role of the business firm, considers whether the new capitalism is compatible with social cohesion and social justice, and addresses topics ranging from the degradation of the environment to the concentrated control of the media by transnational corporations. The contributors discuss capitalism as a form of culture and way of life, and ask whether it has any viable political rivals.
