About this Cambridge Elements series
The Reinventing Capitalism series seeks to feature explorations about the crisis of legitimacy facing capitalism today, including the increasing income and wealth gap, the decline of the middle class, threats to employment due to globalisation and digitalisation, undermined trust in institutions, discrimination against minorities, global poverty and pollution.
The series is intended to be a collection of authoritative literature reviews of foundational topics on renewing capitalism. Contributions to the series aim to be both forward-looking as well as descriptive of recent developments. Being grounded in a business and management perspective, the series incorporates insights from multiple disciplines that promise to substantiate the causes of the current crisis and potential solutions what needs to be done.
Subjects cover the history and development of various forms of capitalism; the relationship between capitalism, socialism, and democracy; the role of “moral sentiments” in the modern economy; capitalism and the future of corporate governance; globalization in a disaggregating world; and entrepreneurship and innovation in the modern economy.
