Abstract

Is the pursuit of profit our destiny as a species? Are we living in a profitocracy rather than a democracy? Can we really trust anyone or any institution, that is not concerned to make a profit out of their activities? Addicted to Profit offers a critical account of the place of profit in today’s society. It is a manifesto for cultural change. Amy Ludlow finds that this book offers thought provoking, post-financial crisis reflections upon the role profit is playing in shaping today’s society.
