Ecological crisis signals the death knell for an economic system that was already profoundly failing us, as Paul Mason mercilessly illustrates in these pages. Building on a remarkable career's worth of reporting on the frontlines of global capitalism and worker resistance, this book is an original, engaging, and bracingly-articulated vision of real alternatives. It is sure to many spark vigorous debates, and they are precisely the ones we should be having.--Naomi Klein

After postmodernism and all other fashionable post-trends, Mason fearlessly confronts the only true post-, postcapitalism. While we can see all around us ominous signs of the impasses of global capitalism, it is perhaps more than ever difficult to imagine a feasible alternative to it. How are we to deal with this frustrating situation? Although Mason's book is irresistibly readable, this clarity should not deceive us: it is a book which compels us to think!--Slavoj i ek"

Even readers not quite persuaded will appreciate Mason's readable, reportorial style, his use of a wide range of economists, business gurus, and economic thinkers to help support his thesis, and his deft treatment of sometimes-difficult economic theories . . . A radical diagnosis and a bold prognostication bound to energize progressives. "Kirkus Reviews"

 

["Postcapitalism"]'s vision for the future . . . is absorbing and provocative. "Publishers Weekly"

 

Mason weaves together varied intellectual threads to produce a fascinating set of ideas . . . The thesis about postcapitalism deserves a wide readership among right and left alike . . . Politicians of all stripes should take note. And so should the people who vote for them. Gillian Tett, "Financial Times"

 

Deeply engaging . . . [Mason] is asking the most interesting questions, unafraid of where they might lead. What s more, he writes with freshness and insight on almost every page . . . I can t remember the last book I read that managed to carve its way through the forest of political and economic ideas with such brio . . . As a spark to the imagination, with frequent x-ray flashes of insight into the way we live now, it is hard to beat. In that sense, Mason is a worthy successor to Marx. David Runciman, "The " "Guardian"
