In Platform Capitalism, Nick Srnicek examines the rise of platform-based businesses from the 1970s to the present and how these are transforming the workings of contemporary capitalism. While more discussion of potential sites of future contestation would have been welcome, Sin Yee Koh applauds this book for its rational and accessible portrayal of the evolution of platform capitalism. If you are interested in this book, you may also like to read Nick Srnicek’s short essay on Platform Capitalism, published on LSE RB on 24 February 2017, or listen to a recording of his LSE Lit Fest panel discussion with Luke Dormehl and Laurie Penny on ‘The Future of Humanity’ .
