It was therefore with great pleasure that we read an essay forwarded to us by a key associate that at least struggles to do exactly that: the former BBC economics correspondent Paul Mason’s The end of capitalism has begun (The Guardian, 17th July 2015).

Mason – who is regarded by some as the most iconic chronicler of the world’s continuing fiscal stupor – posits that capitalism is unravelling because of three interlinked factors: (i) the rise of information technology, which he claims is lessening the need for ‘work’ as conventionally understood; (ii) the subversion of scarce markets by abundant information; and (iii) the rise of collaborative production, a phenomenon which…
