Is Capitalism self-destructive? - by Patrick Artus[Reading report] by Florent Gitiaux

2007-12-05

This paper is not a faithful summary of the subject text. It highlights the key technologies described in the book, which enable us to go further than description. Current forms of capitalism encompass no vision of evolution which itself risks the future of capitalism. The paper suggests that these apparently unavoidable technologies are actually directly linked with this lack of future.
