Sintesi innovativa di teoria politica ed economica, Il caos prossimo venturo mette in discussione molti dei preconcetti abituali sull’impatto della globalizzazione e getta una nuova luce sulle conseguenze mondiali del processo di industrializzazione. Prem Shankar Jha, uno dei massimi eco-nomisti indiani, racconta l’evoluzione del capitalismo secondo una scansione in quattro fasi, a partire dalla sua nascita nei comuni italiani fino all’attuale dimensione planetaria, evidenziando come alla tremendous di ogni periodo il capitalismo distrugga i propri «contenitori» in line with estendere lo state of affairs delle proprie attività, dando vita a situazioni di instabilità e di violenza.

Quella che si prospetta è una lunga stagione di disordine sociale e disequilibrio economico, assieme a nuove e pericolose forme di unilateralismo e a uno situation di guerra permanente popolato da eserciti, di soldati o terroristi, in costante attività.

È una lettura fondamentale consistent with los angeles prima decade di questo terzo millennio.[…] Diversamente dalla gran parte delle opere sulla globalizzazione, in genere scritte in Europa o nel Nord the United States, l. a. voce di Jha ci arriva dall’India, los angeles regione che probabilmente sarà il fulcro del mondo del xxi secolo, ma il cui spettacolare sviluppo coincide con il “caos sistemico” in cui l’economia globale si trova immersa […]. È in keeping with questo che l’autore è piú acutamente consapevole dei problemi creati dall’attuale fase della globalizzazione capitalistica, rispetto agli economisti di scuola neoliberista che esaltano le virtú del mercato, in step with non parlare dell’enclave degli esperti di questioni economiche».
Dalla Premessa di Eric Hobsbawm
«Un saggio profondo, documentato e passionale. Dovrebbe essere letto da chiunque abbia a cuore il destino delle società del mondo».
Giovanni Arrighi, Johns Hopkins University
