Capitalism 4.0, Losing Control And Aftershock

Recommended Posts

A nice set of reviews by Larry Elliott over at the Grauniad...

While Kaletsky identifies innovation and adaptability as the reasons for the success of the western capitalist model, King says market forces appeared to work well in the developed world in part because they were not allowed to work elsewhere. "In the 19th century, western nations rigged market rules to suit themselves, whether through acts of protectionism, drug-trafficking or the law of the gunboat. Through much of the 20th century, experiments with Marxist-Leninism kept many nations in the economic deep freeze, even as the developed nations flourished."
