This book is radical - literally. Author Raoul Martinez goes to the roots of our political and economic ideas,often writing in aphorisms such as: “The idea that we are rewarded according to the market value of our contribution is not just unfair, it’s a myth.” “In the real world, deregulated markets favour those who own capital.”
