Total Capitalism: Market Politics, Market State

Author(s): LEYS, Colin
ISBN13/Barcode: 9780850365900
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
The dream of contemporary capitalism is that everything should become a terrain of profitable enterprise, including most of what has been seen hitherto as the business of government.

Like total war, total capitalism demands the subordination of everything to a single goal – national competitiveness, as defined by trans-national corporate elites. The result is a dramatic erosion of democracy, social cohesion and honesty in public life. The three essays collected here, which have been hailed as ‘modern classics’, summarise a decade of critical analysis of these dynamics.
