Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged downloadable audiobook edition of PostCapitalism, written and read by Paul Mason.
From Paul Mason, the award-winning Channel 4 presenter, PostCapitalism is a guide to our era of seismic economic change and how we can build a more equal society.
Over the past two centuries or so, capitalism has undergone continual change - economic cycles that lurch from boom to bust - and has always emerged transformed and strengthened. Surveying this turbulent history, Paul Mason wonders whether today we are on the brink of a change so big, so profound, that this time capitalism itself, the immensely complex system by which entire societies function, has reached its limits and is changing into something wholly new.
At the heart of this change is information technology: a revolution that, as Mason shows, has the potential to reshape utterly our familiar notions of work, production and value and to destroy an economy based on markets and private ownership; in fact, he contends, it is already doing so.
This audiobook has been updated as of March 2017.

Must read for anyone making sense of our future!

A highly orginal and important contribution to the literature on our future, how bleak the situation is, and the possibilities of charting a more promising course. The author is a realist idealist. A most fascinating, enjoyable and important read!
