Containing three essays, this volume is a critical analysis of modern democracy and capitalism. The collected works challenge the current system, addressing the disappearance of development as a collective goal, the tailoring of political decisions to the public's perception, and the loss of social solidarity under market-driven capitalism.
It analyses what happens to policy-making and the quality of public debate under total capitalism. The privatization of public services is a cardinal element of total capitalism, producing a dynamic that is lethal to public accountability and social solidarity.
