With the patience of the archaeologist delving through the midden layers of the past, the author guides the reader through the weave of the present, reconstructing the pattern connecting community, needs, modes of production, the institutions and manifold facets of markets, and leads him to the latest development -- capitalisms global reach. In the light of the unsustainable costs of a globalization of the three-quarters of the planet, the author suggests an alternative approach founded upon a polycentric system of cooperation and solidarity -- the only capable of losing the bonds of capitalism in the 21st century.
