Summary
"Since 2008, we have found ourselves confronted by an historic financial holocaust that world leaders have struggled to come to terms with. As explained by Harry Shutt--who was almost alone in foreseeing such a disaster a decade before it happened [in the 1990s (in The Trouble with Capitalism)]--their continued denial stems from a vested interest in maintaining a capitalist profits system which is [not only as destructive as it was in the 1930s but] by now as outmoded as feudalism was two hundred years ago [in 1789. Thus it can now only be sustained by an increasing reliance to official misinformation, massive criminal fraud and the ever greater dependence of private corporations on state subsidy]. Beyond the profits system makes clear why the desperate resort of Western governments to 'extraordinary measures' to try to avert economic collapse is bound to fail. It also forcefully demonstrates why we must abandon the traditional economic logic of endlessly expanding production in pursuit of maximum private profit. Rather, our only hope of salvation lies in cooperatively responding to the aspirations of different communities while assuring the basic security of all."--Page 4 of cover
