Bibliography Includes bibliographical references.
Summary Drawing on the fields of economics, psychology, history and political philosophy, Roberts shows how we have become so obsessed with "maximizing returns" that we embrace virtually any means--any technology, personal tactic, or corporate strategy--that can deliver, regardless of consequences. Roberts lays out the history and geography of this new social order and charts a clear pathway toward a different and brighter future.
