Summary
Patel shows how our faith in prices as a way of valuing the world is misplaced and reveals that our current crisis is not simply the result of too much of the wrong kind of economics but rather the larger failure of a democratically bankrupt political system. The solution he offers: discover democratic ways in which people, and not simply governments, can play a crucial role in deciding how we might share our world and its resources in common
Summary
Shows how free-market fundamentalism has distorted how people value the world and shows how people can exercise their democratic rights to reclaim the markets so that they can work for, rather than against, social change.
