By Trent Schroyer

This publication combines highbrow background with modern occasions to supply a critique of mainstream monetary inspiration and its neoliberal coverage incarnation in worldwide capitalism. The critique operates either theoretically, on the point of metaphysics and the philosophy of technological know-how, and concretely, in case reviews of globalization and global events.

These case stories convey a powerful variety of edition, from first international to 3rd global, from reformist to utopian transformative. ultimately, Schroyer hyperlinks the venture to the worldwide justice stream that opposes company globalization and at last hyperlinks participatory economics and democratic politics to a brand new photo of technology as "participatory social learning."
