Reviews

Praise for "The Capitalism Papers"
"In Mander's provocative newest, the environmentalist, social critic, and author of "1977's Four Arguments for the Elimination of Television" predicts the impending failure of the capitalist "experiment," one based on infinite expansion and unable to meet the challenges of climate change, peak oil, finite resources, and a rising global population. Mander lambasts the "intrinsic amorality" of capitalism, arguing that its focus on amassing wealth at any cost has abetted the rise of the incredibly lucrative military-industrial complex, and the practice of "so-called democratic governments...catering to and facilitating the interests of the ultra-rich." Arguing that "cooperation must replace competition," Mander's concerns transcend party lines and established ideologies. As such, he closes with a compelling discussion of four ideas that he believes might blaze a trail away from capitalism and toward sustainable economic models: he suggests a refocusing on the limits of our planet, an emphasis on localization (as opposed to globalization), improved corporate structures, and a dismissal of the current black-and-white notion of capitalism vs. socialism. Refreshing and informative, these papers are a cogent rally cry and eloquent assessment of America's--and the world's--current predicament, dismal prospects, and hope for a way out." --"Publishers Weekly"
"This is a bold, much-needed book. On a subject where others are too often abstract or strident, Jerry Mander writes with a down-to-earth common-sense wisdom. I particularly like the way he weaves together his own experience in business and advertising with a large-spirited awareness of so many dimensions of the fragile planet we live on." --Adam Hochschild, author of "King Leopold's Ghost"
"Jerry Mander's "The Capitalism Papers" is a book of astonishing clarity and all-too-rare honesty. In an age where our major institutions are in collapse as our environment crumbl
