Possibilities for the Post-Capitalist Era
While many have claimed that no one could have foreseen the financial crisis, Harry Shutt was predicting just such a collapse as far back as 1998 in his book, The Trouble With Capitalism. In Beyond the Profits System, Shutt offers a radically different analysis to the mainstream, establishment commentators who have struggled to come to terms with the crisis. Arguing that we need to move away from a system based on compulsive addiction to growth and obsession with the profit motive, towards a collectivist, more humane economic mode, the book provides not merely a comprehensive background to the flawed ideologies of that precipitated the collapse, but also a radical, though realistic, way forward in light of the catastrophe.
Alternatives to a Bankrupt World Order
Harry Shutt argues our world is coming under threat from forces that the ruling elite is increasingly unable to control. Our present economic system is inherently unstable and heading not just for recession, but very serious breakdown. And US domination of international politics cannot last in an age where democracy and respect for human rights are demanded and where marginalization of most of the world’s people is no longer acceptable.
