HypercapitalismPAPERBACK ORIGINAL From the bestselling cartoonist of The Cartoon History of the Universe comes an explosively graphic take down of capitalismBestselling “overeducated cartoonist” Larry Gonick has delighted readers for years with sharp digestible and hilarious accounts of everything from the history of the universe to the story of calculus Now Gonick teams up with psychologist and scholar Tim Kasser an expert on how happiness and values relate to ou uite nice Just by chance I read it at the same time as The Communist Manifesto A Graphic Novel I recommend that one only for the graphics but this one has recommendable content Both books point out that unrestrained capitalism can lead to some bad outcomes including exploitation of workers and destruction of the environment But while CM recommends overthrowing capitalism to replace it with something only vaguely specified this book recommends modest proposals Capitalism has many benefits and should be kept But governmental or societal restraints should be placed on it such as for example don't let companies advertise drugs to kids; don't let companies evade taxes by pretending their profits come only from some other conveniently low tax country etc And even when large scale political solutions seem far away you can control your own behavior for example don't go into debt buying things you don't even want from organizations you don't likeThat is my exaggerated example not one from the book which talks only of advertising toys and food to children
