The still expanding human biomass and mindlessly pursued economic expansion are straining against the planet's physical limits. Oil! Energy! Ecology! Growing vulnerabilities in hyperlinked national economies! The transformation of the current global system, "mixed economy/weak multilateralism," into a radically new one, "two-level economy/strong multilateralism," looks like the only way to avoid drifting toward extinction.Charismatic leadership and rational arguments cannot see us through such a transformation. Remember 1914?1945? That was the price of going from the first global system, "laissez faire/metal money," which ruled the world during most of the 19th century, to the current one. Only another chaotic interlude, another Darwinian showdown among forcefully supported alternatives, can overcome the ominous macrohistoric hurdle on the horizon.The physical nature of history's unfolding supports this theory. The development and transformation of global systems is a thermodynamic evolution. Change in the network of billions of interconnected minds is its central process.

Book Description iUniverse, United States, 2006. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.The post-Marxian, new historical materialism described in this book breathes new life into our comprehension of the world. A 200-year perspective on modernity tells us that an all-embracing physical phenomenon holds humankind in its grip. History has recorded two distinct global systems thus far: laissez faire/metal money, which spanned most of the 19th century and lasted until the outbreak of World War I, and mixed economy/weak multilateralism, which began after 1945 and exists today. The period between the two systems, 1914-1945, was a chaotic transition. This evolutionary pulsation is well known to students of thermodynamics. It corresponds to the behavior of expanding and complexifying material systems. The exhaustion of oil and other natural resources is pushing the world toward a third global system that may be called two-level economy/strong multilateralism. It will be impossible to get there without a new chaotic transition. No repeated warnings, academic advice, moral advocacy, inspired reforms, or political leadership can provide a shortcut around it. But if it took 1914-1945 to make a relatively minor adjustment in the global order, what will it take to make a major one?. Seller Inventory # AAV9780595410798
