Is Capitalism Working?
2008 saw the beginning of a world economic crisis unlike any other we have ever seen. Since the end of the second World War there have been seven official recessions, but each of these was followed by relatively fast recoveries, unlike this one. Is it time to call it a day on a system that continues to destabilise the world economy? This brilliant book from The Big Idea series by Thames & Hudson is an incredibly engaging volume that takes us through the history of capitalism and gifts us with enough information for us to attempt to answer for ourselves if capitalism is working. In 4 chapters the book looks at How Capitalism Evolved, How Modern Capitalism Works, Capitalism in Crisis and Adapting the Capitalist Model. Beautifully designed and filled with illustrations, it's also written with "quick-recognition text hierarchy" which means that paragraphs are prioritised using different font sizes. So you can either read an overview in half an hour or if you set aside a couple of hours, you'll be able to read the entire book and get both a well-balanced overview and a detailed comprehension of individual concepts.
