Redefining Capitalism in Global Economic Development (Paperback) (Kui Wai Li)
About this item
Redefining Capitalism in Global Economic Development reconsiders capitalism by taking into account the unfolding forces of economic globalization, especially in Asian economies. It explores the economic implications and consequences of recent financial crises, terrorism, ultra-low interest rates that are decades-long, debt-prone countries and countries with large trade surpluses.
The book illuminates these economic implications and consequences through a framework of capitalist ideologies and concepts, recognizing that Asia is redefining capitalism today. The author, Li, seeks not to describe why nations fail, but how the sustainability of capitalism can save the world.
- Merges capitalist theory with global events, as few books do
- Emphasizes ways to interpret capitalist ideas in light of current global affairs
- Reframes capitalism via economics, supported by insights from political science, sociology, international relations and peace studies
