How to Reform Capitalism
by The School of Life
edited by Alain de Botton
A revolutionary, yet utterly practical blueprint for a wiser and better kind of capitalism.
It is quite normal to feel frustrated and sorrowful about aspects of modern capitalism, but realistic hope of change can seem either Utopian or demented. In fact, the way that capitalism works is inherently open to alteration and improvement. This is because the problems of capitalism are, in their essence, not about money, law or politics, but about human psychology―the field of expertise of The School of Life.
As this hugely original essay argues, the path to a better sort of capitalism starts with a clear-eyed understanding of our emotional functioning and the workings of our psyches.
