The End of Organized Capitalism
The End of Organized Capitalism argues that - despite Marx's and Weber's insistence that capitalist societies become increasingly more ordered - we now live in an era of 'disorganized capitalism'. The book is devoted to a systematic examination of the shift to disorganized capitalism in five Western nations (Britain, the USA, France, Germany and Sweden).
