"The Poverty of Capitalism: Economic Meltdown and the Struggle for What Comes Next." John Hilary. Pluto Press. October 2013. --- Capitalist growth is widely heralded as the only answer to the crisis still sweeping the global economy. Yet the era of corporate globalisation has been defined by unprecedented levels of inequality and environmental degradation. In this book, John Hilary sets out to reveal the true face of transnational capital in its insatiable drive for expansion and accumulation. Readers might find in this book compelling reasons to support a move away from capitalism, writes Sarah Morley.
