Few ideas have had as much impact on our daily lives as capitalism; dominating the globe, both in economics and ideology, it influences everything from laws, wars, and government to interpersonal relationships. With illustrations, diagrams, and "talking head" cartoons on nearly every page, this pocketable digest introduces this tricky subject in highly visual terms. It tells the story of capitalism's remarkable and often ruthless evolution, chronicling the major economic, social, and political developments that shaped the world we live in, including the rise of banking, the founding of America, and the Opium Wars. The authors explore the leading views for and against capitalist theory, from thinkers like Adam Smith, Karl Marx, Theodor Adorno, and Milton Friedman, together with the connections between them and their historical context.
