Critique of Capitalism

A fascinating argument by a Marxist political philosopher:




The section on growth (in part 2) is particularly interesting, and is a decent example of a steady-state (or de-growth) critique of capitalism. Psychology and education are brought in to great effect. Economic life has such all-pervasive reach nowadays (everything is defined in its terms), and its strange to see it put back in its box, so to speak, by defining it in such a discrete way (referring to "capitalists", for example). It's either old-fashioned, or healthy. Maybe both.
