Decline of Capitalism by Harry Shutt

Book Description

As financial and economic chaos increasingly threatens the entire world, its leaders have only one answer: rigid adherence to the neoliberal policies that have proved so disastrous over 25 years - while they falsify statistics to try and shore up public illusions of 'success' and seek to distract attention with a bogus 'war on terror'. But what this strategy of desperation can no longer conceal is the inability of self-regulated, profit-maximizing capitalism either to deliver minimum acceptable levels of economic security to the vast mass of the world's people or to avert ultimate financial crisis such as will bring ruin even to most of the privileged few. As this grim reality - manifested in chronic low growth, crumbling share values, bankrupt pension funds and unprecedented corporate failure and fraud - begins to dawn on the public, it must raise increasing doubts as to the sustainability of an economic order so long taken for granted.

Beyond the Profits System by Harry Shutt Beyond the Profits System, Paperback (February 2010)

Offers a different analysis to the mainstream, establishment commentators who have struggled to come to terms with the crisis. This book provides not merely a comprehensive background to the flawed ideologies that precipitated the collapse, but also a radical way forward in light of the catastrophe.

Trouble with Capitalism by Harry Shutt Trouble with Capitalism, Paperback (September 2009)

The collapse of the banking system and instability in the financial markets has dramatically shaken confidence in the global economic order. This work argues that the crisis has arisen as a result of fundamental economic problems, stemming from the growing redundancy of both labour and capital since the 1970s.
