The Locust and the Bee: Predators and Creators in Capitalism's Future Audio Download – Unabridged
Top Customer Reviews
The basis of the whole book is the duality of capitalism. Its Janus facet, its hypocrisy, twosidedness, two facedness, its yin and yang. The predator and the creator - the locust and the bee. Mulgan manages to distance himself from living in a capitalist world, and looks at it dispassionately, not just warts and all, but also at the overwhelming advantages and accomplishments. It is enormously fair. Mulgan is Lafayette visiting the new world.
The enervating and maddening thing about The Locust and the Bee is the amount of provocative information in it. It often seems that every sentence is thought provoking; if you let it, it would take all year to finish reading it once. In the first half, every paragraph merits a page, and every page merits its own book. The whole thing is important and informative.
Those first pages are packed with great wisdom, just mentioned in passing, and often without further analysis. Hundreds of facts, quotes, and theories.Read more ›
