Global Problems and the Culture of Capitalism examines the development and impact of capitalism on global systems. Authors Richard Robbins and Rachel Dowty show how capitalism and the systems that have contested it have impacted the economic, political and social forces that dominate our lives. Drawing on disciplines such as anthropology, history, economics, and sociology, the authors will help you achieve a comprehensive understanding of the problems with capitalism and actionable ways to solve them.
The 7th Edition provides updated content that reflects modern issues and technologies. A new chapter on Disaster Capitalism explores how the economic system relates to the occurrence, reaction and remediation of large disasters worldwide.
