The Impasse Of Modernity: Debating The Future Of The Global Market Economy

In this engaging book, Christian Comeliau argues that any attempt to understand the historical logic of modernity as a social system must start with the economy. His exploration focuses on the dominant position of market economies in the social system. He examines contemporary phenomena such as the idea of indefinite growth as the mainspring of development, the intensification of social inequality and the future of work, difficulties resulting from globalization and international trade, and questions regarding the future role of the state.
