The author is part of the "Alternative Management" third year specialization program in HEC Paris

This book presents the evolution of capitalism to a system run by absolute ownership and profitability requirements. It explains the current mechanisms of market economy which is disconnected from the real economy, and suggests a reintroduction of political order for solutions to emerge against the excesses of financial capitalism; this political order should be wisely used with a global and cooperative approach, in order to implement new regulations
