This book looks at the world through the prism of class struggle, as it has developed in the early 21st century.
It states in unequivocal terms the following proposition; “At the root of the social conflicts that plague mankind lies the private appropriation of wealth that is collectively produced; so any social system that retains private property in the means of production necessarily retains the contradiction this embodies and the social conflict that arises out of it.
What is more, humanity must choose a new system or sink into stagnation and decay. The sense that things simply cannot continue in the old way is extremely widespread on the planet”
A.P.S. explores key economic concepts including but not exclusively labor arbitrage (off shoring), artificial intelligence and production and new forms of money.
Complimentary copies of Why Class Still Matters — Political Economy of the Working Class by A.P.S. are available at Burning Books.
