Review of Post-Capitalism

Good review of Mason's book on post-capitalism. A point I've emphasized:

"Mason is no anarchist railing against the powers that be, far from it. In Mason’s view the way forward can only be paved by our leaders, both politicians and the new wave of tech-industry giants. Mason makes clear, numbers don’t lie, global debt is reaching critical mass- privatization must stop, we must recognize the market cannot save us — it will not reach equilibrium, but more, extensive and involved planning by a strong government hand will be needed as the guiding force, like it or not."

And that government must be led by the likes of Sanders and Corbyn.
