History of the World in 7 Cheap Things
Raj Patel and Jason W. Moore
Don’t be fooled by the title; this isn’t a penny-pinching guide, but rather a scathing critique of a capitalism system that has worked to cheapen nature, money, work, care, food, energy, and lives. The economisation of these ‘7 Cheap Things’, argue Patel and Moore, has wreaked havoc on the Earth and in this book, they propose radical solutions to fix it.
Naomi Klein, author of This Changes Everything, says:
“As we come together to build a better world, this book could well become a defining framework to broaden and deepen our ambitions.”
