For younger readers, if they live enough, it will be fanny to see how all this will historically end.

The Capitalism Papers is a very cogent analysis of the impact of capitalism on the environment and the deep class divide the causes. The author provides adequate evidence for why capitalism is indeed an "obsolete system. And quite frankly there's nothing wrong with that.

Jul 31, Gus diZerega rated it really liked it Shelves: An excellent overview of why capitalism as opposed to market based economies of different sorts is destructive at many levels. Chapters include discussing its amorality, ecological destructiveness, propensity to support war, destruction of democracy, disconnection from human happiness, and more. A brief final chapter looks at alternative possibilities. It's major flaw, a significant one for me, was its unrelenting playing the "aint it awful" card.

This a very good summary of the current critique of the dominant economic system. If you follow this topic, there is not much new here but it collects a lot of information in one place. I was hoping for more discussion of what is next and while some ideas are mentioned they are not flushed out in detail.

Thought provoking central thesis that seems so simple, yet very difficult to argue against. Feb 20, Matt Styles rated it liked it. I did enjoy the book and it's analysis of capitalism, although I think it lacks referencing, particularly harvard referencing which makes me think alot of it is opinion based but that's probably just preference on my part. Such a broad range of topics covered, I lost my way a little towards the end. Still an excellent and informative read.
