... small but wide-ranging ... The Future of Capitalism is rife with inventive proposals, including the creation of a new international body that would coordinate the diplomatic efforts of the world’s great powers; reforming corporate boards; establishing socioeconomically integrated schools built around distinctive 'belief systems' and much else ... Though I wouldn’t endorse Collier’s manifesto in every detail, his 'hard centrism' has much to offer.
[A] personal, passionate and original book ... One does not have to agree with everything in the book to realise its scope and power ... This book is admirable in many ways: the broadened ethical approach to economics; the range of economic, social and political issues it analyses; and the analysis of the economics of agglomeration in today’s world. Yet it also breeds despair, at least in me ... This is a beautifully written and important book. Read it.
