A global movement against capitalism has taken root. It calls on us to reclaim our lives from the control of corporations. Anti-Capitalism explains why we need a socially controlled economy, what that means and how it could work. This book outlines a political strategy to take us towards that transformation.

The changes required are politically revolutionary, but practically straightforward. The flexibility of the market can be combined with social control of the economy. What's more, the universal distrust of powerful institutions has now made room for the politics of economic democracy. Though about economics, the book demands no in-depth knowledge of the subject. It is aimed at students and activists who know there must be a better way of organizing the world, but are not sure what it is.
