America Beyond Capitalism: An “Evolutionary Reconstruction” of the System Is Necessary and Possible


There is a lengthy description and praise for the book in the article America Beyond Capitalism: An “Evolutionary Reconstruction” of the System Is Necessary and Possible .

This is the first chapter in an exclusive Truthout series from political economist and author Gar Alperovitz. We will be publishing weekly installments of the new edition of “America Beyond Capitalism,” a visionary book, first published in 2005, whose time has come.

I guess it should not have come as a surprise that this article should praise the book’s foresight so much.  This article is written by the book’s author.  Nevertheless, it does offer insights into some tantalizing ideas for an “Evolutionary Reconstruction.”

Just keep in mind that no human enterprise is without problems.  As this new structure evolves, issues will arise and solutions will need to be found.  The lessons we learned from monocropping should teach us that we always need to have several alternative methods in operation so that we can adapt to changing circumstances.
