«I nuclei delle generazioni sono come quelli degli atomi: dimensioni strutturali tenute insieme da “forze forti”, che attraggono con la loro carica positiva e sprigionano energia di legame. E proprio come i nuclei degli atomi, anche quelli generazionali non possono essere quantificati con esattezza ma devono essere osservati nella loro attività. Isolati attraverso l’osservazione etno-antropologica, con tutta la loro carica positiva producono un’enorme attrazione nei confronti di altri soggetti, sia della propria generazione sia di altre, con una potenza che plasma valori e comportamenti del futuro. Lavorare sui nuclei generazionali significa dunque definire una concezione dinamica della segmentazione, in cui, estendendo le aree di attrattività dei brand sulla scia della forza di legame, diventa possibile utilizzare il nucleo generazionale come core target: non come una gabbia o un bersaglio militare, ma piuttosto come una molla verso altre generazioni. In questa nuova prospettiva, imprenditori e manager potranno così valutare le opportunità di convergenza tra settori e utilizzare i nuclei generazionali come facilitatori per nuove partnership. I gruppi generazionali non sono infatti semplicemente target di mercato, ma produttori di possibilità inedite, per una società globale rigenerata, fondata sulla varietà dell’umano, alla ricerca di nuove forme di convivenza.» (dall’Introduzione)

Il terrorismo si è trasformato oggi in un vero e proprio brand, modificando i suoi linguaggi e lo stile con cui comunicava la sua «missione». Si è rifatto l’immagine e ha adottato le tecniche più innovative della comunicazione visuale, dalla grafi ca alla post-produzione, assoldando tra le sue file soggetti provenienti dalla classe creativa e dalle sottoculture, in particolare dalle scene hip hop delle metropoli europee, con tanto di tatuaggi e di stili di vita problematici. Nell'epidemia di diffusione del nuovo terrorismo un aspetto decisivo è la centralità del consumo. Se è vero che l’Occidente è ovunque, più che dalla forma universale del diritto esso è rappresentato infatti dalla forma globale del consumo. Essendo quest’ultimo la dimensione superficiale attraverso cui i terroristi possono interagire con i valori profondi delle società democratiche occidentali (la libertà che diventa libertà di consumare), essi mirano a colpire i luoghi del divertimento e del loisir: non solo per suscitare più clamore, ma anche per recidere il doppio legame che li rende dipendenti da quel mondo.

From Paul Mason, the award-winning Channel 4 presenter, Postcapitalism is a guide to our era of seismic economic change, and how we can build a more equal society. Over the past two centuries or so, capitalism has undergone continual change - economic cycles that lurch from boom to bust - and has always emerged transformed and strengthened. Surveying this turbulent history, Paul Mason wonders whether today we are on the brink of a change so big, so profound, that this time capitalism itself, the immensely complex system by which entire societies function, has reached its limits and is changing into something wholly new. At the heart of this change is information technology: a revolution that, as Mason shows, has the potential to reshape utterly our familiar notions of work, production and value; and to destroy an economy based on markets and private ownership - in fact, he contends, it is already doing so. Almost unnoticed, in the niches and hollows of the market system, whole swathes of economic life are changing.. Goods and services that no longer respond to the dictates of neoliberalism are appearing, from parallel currencies and time banks, to cooperatives and self-managed online spaces. Vast numbers of people are changing their behaviour, discovering new forms of ownership, lending and doing business that are distinct from, and contrary to, the current system of state-backed corporate capitalism. In this groundbreaking book Mason shows how, from the ashes of the recent financial crisis, we have the chance to create a more socially just and sustainable global economy. Moving beyond capitalism, he shows, is no longer a utopian dream. This is the first time in human history in which, equipped with an understanding of what is happening around us, we can predict and shape, rather than simply react to, seismic change.

Capitalism is the only complex system known to us that can provide an efficient and innovative economy, but the financial crisis has brought out the pernicious side of capitalism and shown that it remains dependent on the state to rescue it from its own deficiencies. Can capitalism be reshaped so that it is fit for society, or must we acquiesce to the neoliberal view that society will be at its best when markets are given free rein in all areas of life? The aim of this book is to show that the acceptance of capitalism and the market does not require us to accept the full neoliberal agenda of unrestrained markets, insecurity in our working lives, and neglect of the environment and of public services. In particular, it should not mean supporting the growing dominance of public life by corporate wealth. The world’s most successful mature economies are those that fully embrace both the discipline of the market and the need for protection against its negative outcomes. Indeed, a continuing, unresolved clash between these two forces is itself a major source of vitality and innovation for economy and society. But maintenance of that tension depends on the enduring strength of trade unions and other critical groups in civil society - a strength that is threatened by neoliberalism’s increasingly intolerant onward march. Outlining the principles for a renewed and more assertive social democracy, this timely and important book shows that real possibilities exist to create a better world than that which is being offered by the wealthy elites who dominate our public and private lives.

In this letter to his teenage daughter, one of the world's most famous economists uses vivid stories to explain what economics is and why it is so dangerous. What is money and why does debt exist? Where do wealth and inequality come from? How come economics has the power to shape and destroy our lives? Economics is not a technical science, it is an epic drama: a battleground of ideas, a war between the powerful for our allegiance. In this universally accessible book, Yanis Varoufakis describes how this drama first emerged and has since come to dominate the fate of human societies worldwide. In answering all of the big questions about money and debt, power and inequality, he shows how economics has sought to solve the problems of our world but turned out to be a major cause of many of them. Drawing on history and literature, science fiction and personal memories, this intimate and inspiring book shines a light for readers of all ages on some of the most bewildering questions and important challenges that humanity faces.

Incisive grassroots account of the new global revolutions by acclaimed BBC journalist. The world is facing a wave of uprisings, protests and revolutions: Arab dictators swept away, public spaces occupied, slum-dwellers in revolt, cyberspace buzzing with utopian dreams. Events we were told were consigned to history—democratic revolt and social revolution—are being lived by millions of people. In this compelling new book, Paul Mason explores the causes and consequences of this great unrest. From Cairo to Athens, Wall Street and Westminster to Manila, Mason goes in search of the changes in society, technology and human behavior that have propelled a generation onto the streets in search of social justice. In a narrative that blends historical insight with first-person reportage, Mason shines a light on these new forms of activism, from the vast, agile networks of cyberprotest to the culture wars and tent camps of the #occupy movement. The events, says Mason, reflect the expanding power of the individual and call for new political alternatives to elite rule and global poverty.

After 1989, capitalism has successfully presented itself as the only realistic political-economic system - a situation that the bank crisis of 2008, far from ending, actually compounded. The book analyses the development and principal features of this capitalist realism as a lived ideological framework. Using examples from politics, films, fiction, work and education, it argues that capitalist realism colours all areas of contemporary experience. But it will also show that, because of a number of inconsistencies and glitches internal to the capitalist reality program capitalism in fact is anything but realistic.
