Oliver James - The Selfish Capitalist (Origins of Affluenza) (2nd Hand Hardback)
The scientific companion to the bestselling "Affluenza".
This book provides hard evidence that Free Market Economics causes mental illness: that prevalence of mental illness in the English-speaking developed nations which are neo-liberal is twice that of the relatively unselfish capitalist mainland Western European nations.
The Selfish Capitalist provides more detailed substantiation for the claims made in Affluenza. It looks deeper into the origins of the virus and outlines the political, economic and social climate in which it has grown. James points out that, since the seventies, the rich have got much, much richer, yet the average person's wage has not increased at all.
A rallying cry to the Government to reduce our levels of distress by adopting a form of unselfish capitalism, this hard-hitting and thought-provoking work tells us why our personal well-being must take precedence over the wealth of a tiny minority if we are to cure ourselves of this disease.
