Postcapitalism : a guide to our future by Paul Mason( Book )

45 editions published between 2015 and 2018 in English and German and held by 1,033 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the past two centuries or so, capitalism has undergone profound changes--economic cycles that veer from boom to bust--from which it has always emerged transformed and strengthened. Surveying this turbulent history, Paul Mason's Postcapitalism argues that we are on the brink of a change so big and so profound that this time capitalism itself, the immensely complex system within which entire societies function, will mutate into something wholly new. At the heart of this change is information technology, a revolution that is driven by capitalism but, with its tendency to push the value of much of what we make toward zero, has the potential to destroy an economy based on markets, wages, and private ownership. Almost unnoticed, in the niches and hollows of the market system, swaths of economic life are beginning to move to a different rhythm. Vast numbers of people are changing how they behave and live, in ways contrary to the current system of state-backed corporate capitalism. And as the terrain changes, new paths open. In this bold and prophetic book, Mason shows how, from the ashes of the crisis, we have the chance to create a more socially just and sustainable economy. Although the dangers ahead are profound, he argues that there is cause for hope. This is the first time in human history in which, equipped with an understanding of what is happening around us, we can predict and shape the future"--

Why it's kicking off everywhere : the new global revolutions by Paul Mason( Book )

11 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 567 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The world is facing a wave of uprisings, protests and revolutions: Arab dictators swept away, public spaces occupied, slum-dwellers in revolt, cyberspace buzzing with utopian dreams. Events we were told were consigned to history--democratic revolt and social revolution--are being lived by millions of people. In this compelling new book, Paul Mason explores the causes and consequences of this great unrest. From Cairo to Athens, Wall Street and Westminster to Manila, Mason goes in search of the changes in society, technology and human behavior that have propelled a generation onto the streets in search of social justice. In a narrative that blends historical insight with first-person reportage, Mason shines a light on these new forms of activism, from the vast, agile networks of cyberprotest to the culture wars and tent camps of the #occupy movement. The events, says Mason, reflect the expanding power of the individual and call for new political alternatives to elite rule and global poverty."--Page 4 of cover

Rare earth by Paul Mason( )

8 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A washed up TV reporter stumbles onto a corruption scandal in Western China. Pursued through the desert by a psychotic spin-doctor and a world-weary cop, he discovers the real China: illegal metal mines, a fashion-crazed gang of girl bikers, a whole commune of Tiananmen Square survivors and the up-market sleaze-joints of Beijing. En route, he clashes with a stellar cast of people-traffickers, prostitutes and TV execs. But then the unquiet dead begin to intervene: ghosts from his own past and the past of Chinese Communism; the 'spirits that hover three feet above our heads' of Chinese folklore. R
Against the troika : crisis and austerity in the Eurozone by Heiner Flassbeck( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On the 25th January 2015, the Greek people voted in an election of historic importance--not just for Greece but potentially all of Europe. The radical party Syriza was elected and austerity and the neoliberal agenda challenged. Suddenly it seems as if there is an alternative. But what? The Eurozone is in a deep and prolonged crisis. It is now clear that monetary union is a historic failure, beyond repair--and certainly not in the interests of Europe's working people. Building on the economic analysis of two of Europe's leading thinkers, Heiner Flassbeck and Costas Lapavitsas (now a Syriza member of parliament), Against the Troika is the first book to propose a strategic left-wing plan for how peripheral countries could exit the euro. With a change in government in Greece, and looming political transformations in countries such as Spain, this major intervention lays out a radical, anti-capitalist programme at a critical juncture for Europe. The final three chapters offer a detailed postmortem of the Greek catastrophe, explain what can be learned from it--and provide a possible alternative. Against the is a practical blueprint for real change in a continent wracked by crisis and austerity"--Back cover
Syriza : inside the labyrinth by Kevin Ovenden( Book )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and German and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Analysis of political events which lead up to the storming to power of Syriza in Greece in January 2015. Beginning with the origins of the turbulent Greek political climate; from the postwar beginnings of the KKE and the worker's movement, encompassing the civil war, the rise and fall of Passok; discussing the growth of radical resistance in the 70s, before moving on to the humiliation of 'Merkelism' and the humiliating demands of the Troika. Ovenden takes time to look at the far right movements in Greece, focusing on the negative impact Golden Dawn had and still maintains. Looking at Syriza in the cold light of day, he dissects their structure and composition in light of their history. Overall, this is a book full of hope for the future. Syriza want to provide a new future for workers across Europe, a way out of the quagmire. Ovenden concludes by emphasising how the strategic question for the left has been fundamentally altered by this monumental political feat
The global minotaur : America, Europe, and the future of the global economy by Yanis Varoufakis( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author explodes the myth that financialization, ineffectual regulation of banks, greed and globalization were the root causes of the global economic crisis. Rather, they are symptoms of a much deeper malaise which can be traced all the way back to the Great Crash of 1929, then on through to the 1970s: the time when a 'Global Minotaur' was born. Just as the Athenians maintained a steady flow of tributes to the Cretan beast, so the 'rest of the world' began sending incredible amounts of capital to America and Wall Street. Thus, the Global Minotaur became the 'engine' that pulled the world economy from the early 1980s to 2008. Today's crisis in Europe, the heated debates about austerity versus further fiscal stimuli in the US, the clash between China's authorities and the Obama administration on exchange rates are the inevitable symptoms of the weakening Minotaur; of a global 'system' which is now as unsustainable as it is imbalanced. Going beyond this, the author lays out the options available to us for reintroducing a modicum of reason into a highly irrational global economic order

Free-Market Capitalism Is So 20th-Century : a Debate( Visual )

3 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The recession of 2008 has cast serious doubt on whether free-market capitalism, an idea set that functioned reasonably well in the 20th century, is a healthy economic ideology to carry over into the 21st. Has free-market capitalism become an outdated economic model? That is the question in this Oxford Union-style debate as panelists make their case. Speakers for the motion argue that capitalism has been empirically proven wrong due to its failure to warn of impending crisis and that 'state capitalism, ' as it is evolving in Saudi Arabia, China, and Russia, is the model for the immediate future; those against identify contributory factors--for example, a lack of adequate competition that enabled core institutions to grow too big to be allowed to fail--as the agents of capitalist catastrophe and point to the systems used in Scandinavia as exemplary models of free-market capitalism. Questions from the floor follow. The final vote? Significantly against. Political satirist Rory Bremner presides."--Container

Postcapitalismo : hacia un nuevo futuro by Paul Mason( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in Spanish and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Los pilares del modelo capitalista se están derrumbando. Por una parte, el triunfo del neoliberalismo ha minimizado a la clase obrera como agente del cambio político y económico y, por otra, los cambios en las técnicas productivas producidos a raíz del avance de las tecnologías de la información están destruyendo el mecanismo de fijación de los precios y el concepto de valor económico. A lo largo de este innovador libro, Paul Mason nos ofrece una amplia panorámica de la historia del capitalismo, mientras sostiene que está condenado a morir y que dará paso a algo completamente nuevo: el postcapitalismo

Die große Regression eine internationale Debatte über die geistige Situation der Zeit by Heinrich Geiselberger( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in German and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Spätestens seit sich die Folgen der Finanzkrise abzeichnen und die Migration in die Europäische Union zunimmt, sehen wir uns mit Entwicklungen konfrontiert, die viele für Phänomene einer längst vergangenen Epoche hielten: dem Aufstieg nationalistischer, teils antiliberaler Parteien wie dem Front National und der AfD, einer tiefgreifenden Krise der EU, einer Verrohung des öffentlichen Diskurses durch Demagogen wie Donald Trump, wachsendem Misstrauen gegenüber den etablierten Medien und einer Verbreitung fremdenfeindlicher Einstellungen, die an dunkle Zeiten gemahnt. Politiker werden als "Vaterlandsverräter" verunglimpft, Muslime unter Generalverdacht gestellt, im Internet werden die krudesten Verschwörungstheorien propagiert. In diesem Band untersuchen international renommierte Forscher und Intellektuelle die Ursachen dieser "Großen Regression", verorten sie in einem historischen Kontext, erörtern Szenarien für die nächsten Jahre und diskutieren Strategien, mit denen wir diesen Entwicklungen entgegentreten können. Mit Beiträgen von Arjun Appadurai, Zygmunt Bauman, Donatella della Porta, Nancy Fraser, Eva Illouz, Ivan Krastev, Bruno Latour, Paul Mason, Pankaj Mishra, Robert Misik, Oliver Nachtwey, César Rendueles, Wolfgang Streeck, David Van Reybrouck, Slavoj Žižek
The Corbyn effect( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Labour's performance in the June 2017 General Election came as a surprise to almost everyone. Few, from the most committed supporters of Jeremy Corbyn to seasoned political commentators, expected the Labour vote share to rise so dramatically and seats to be won with such substantial swings. The Corbyn Effect is the first serious attempt to understand this exciting new phenomenon in British politics. In specially-commissioned essays, writers, academics and activists from across political generations explore the meaning, limitations and potential of Corbynism. How has Corbyn changed the Labour Party? Is his support inside and outside the party likely to last? What can we expect a Corbyn government to achieve? It was previously widely accepted as fact that a left-wing Labour leader could enjoy popular support from the party membership, but not from the voting public. And it was also previously assumed that this electorate was too wedded to the appeal of an austerity-driven, low-tax economy and small state, to vote for left-wing policies. The Corbyn Effect offers a careful and original analysis of the new shifts in this system of ideas
