PostCapitalism: A Guide to Our Future by Paul Mason
In PostCapitalism, Paul Mason argues that the world is moving towards an era of “postcapitalism” where people will work less and live better lives. He explains how we got here, why it matters, and what we can do to make things better.
In his introduction, Paul Mason writes, “The world is changing faster than ever before. We face unprecedented challenges – from climate change to mass migration, from inequality to war. And we are failing to meet them... the old order is collapsing around us...I am writing this book because I think there is a better world waiting to be built. And I want to help build it.” He goes on to say that he believes that capitalism has failed us, and that we need to change our economic system if we want to survive. He argues that we should move away from a competitive economy towards one that is cooperative. He believes that we must work together to create a society where people care for each other instead of competing against each other.
"Capitalism is failing us. We cannot afford to leave it unchanged." He argues that we must change the way we think about economics if we want to create a better world.
Paul Mason also writes, “The crisis of capitalism is not simply a financial one. It is a crisis of legitimacy. We live in a world where people feel increasingly powerless. And we know that powerlessness is dangerous.” He goes on to say, “We need a new kind of politics, one which does not promise to solve our problems for us.”
He explains why he wrote this book. He writes, “I want to write a book that helps people understand what is happening to them and to their world today, and then to help them imagine a different future.”
Inventing the Future: Postcapitalism and a World Without Work by Nick Srnicek and Alex Williams
This book explores the idea of postcapitalism and its implications for our future. It looks at the history of capitalism and asks whether it has run its course. It also examines the ways in which capitalism has failed us and proposes alternatives.
In Postcapitalism, Nick Srnicek and Alexander Williams argue that capitalism and austerity has failed us, and we need to move beyond it. Capitalism is inherently unstable because it requires constant growth, which leads to environmental destruction and social inequality. To solve these problems, they propose a postcapitalist society where people cooperate instead of compete.
The authors propose a radical rethinking of what it means to be human. They argue that we should move away from the idea of individual self-interest and towards collective interests. They say that we should stop thinking of ourselves as individuals and instead think of ourselves as members of groups. And they suggest that we should work together to create a better world.
Capitalism and austerity, they say, is a system built around the idea of profit maximization, which leads to endless cycles of boom and bust, and ultimately to environmental destruction and social inequality.

They argue that capitalism has failed because it has created a world where people are forced to compete against each other for jobs, resources, and status. Capitalism has also led to environmental destruction, inequality, and political instability. To fix these problems, they suggest replacing capitalism with a postcapitalist society.
