Greider explains the dynamics of the global economy in terms of human struggle. As he makes clear, the actions of multinational corporations and finance capitalists are no longer guided by the national interests of their home countries, but by the imperatives of the free market. As the global economy's contradictions multiply and its instabilities deepen, are we doomed to relive the world depression and the rise of violent fascism experienced in the early 20th century?
"Don't Waste Your Time! - Nothing Like the Book"
The collapse of the economy in 2008 and the events which followed have exposed cracks in the foundation of our economic, cultural, and political values. There is a pervasive feeling in our country that democracy is broken. In Come Home, America William Greider suggests that it is time to quit pretending that it isn't so.
The Soul of Capitalism examines how the greatest wealth-creation engine in the history of the world is failing most of us, why it must be changed, and how intrepid pioneers are beginning to transform it. Best-selling author William Greider analyzes how our relentless pursuit of unprecedented affluence has eroded family life, eaten away at our sense of personal and professional security, corroded our communities, impoverished our spiritual lives, and devastated our natural environment.
