2.0 out of 5 stars Had great expectations for this book, 22 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Had great expectations for this book. But found it well below my expectations as he seems to hold an historicist position so to me it soon became unreadable. Might hold my nose and try to finish it!

Interesting book but I think the last section is not very useful.
Its strength is in reporting the corruption in Large Companies.
I get the impression that Economics Teaching at Southampton University was very lacking at the time he attended

A wonderful book I recommend it to everyone it puts together in one place the work of several eminent scholars in the area.
Also so depressing to read of the corruption in the Labour Party (Not including the War Lord Blair which only the blind cant see- however many elections he won?????).

I was nice to see an evaluation of Economic theory in this area from someone from SE Asia giving a different perspective on the issues
But did not include all the things they don't tell you have to look a book with a wider perspective for that.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although an academic book, it is a must read for anyone interested in the future of the world economic system and its impact on society. An eye opener on the asymmetric treatment of big business and its limited liability for debts.

( Compare this with the treatment of Greece today where people are being made destitute because the liability of the state is unlimited)

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Both in its analysis of corruption and a insightful study into the socio-economic change that has given corruption the green light this book (besides being depressing) gives a clear assessment as to what we as a community have let ourselves get into.
