Postcapitalism

A Guide To Our Future




Our world is on the brink of seismic change - how can we emerge from the crisis a fairer, more equal society?

Paul Mason's scorching top ten bestseller argues that capitalism is about to change forever. We are on the brink of a transformation so big, so profound, that this time capitalism itself, the complex, unpredictable system within which entire societies function, is changing into something wholly new: Postcapitalism.

Almost unnoticed, in the niches and hollows of the market system, whole swathes of economic life are beginning to move to a different rhythm, in ways wholly unlike the current system of state-backed corporate capitalism. And at the heart of this change is information technology. Mason shows how we now have the chance to create a more socially just and sustainable economy. 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 our future.

Praise for Postcapitalism

This fresh and insightful book illuminates the present in unexpected, revelatory ways . . . 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 . . . a spark to the imagination

David Runciman, Guardian

An original, engaging, and bracingly articulated vision of real alternatives

Naomi Klein

Even if you love the current capitalist system, it would be a mistake to ignore this book . . . Politicians of all stripes should take note. And so should the people who vote for them

Gillian Tett, Financial Times
