The Civilized Market As the twentieth century closes capitalism has triumphed over its enemies. But is it about to be strangled by its friends? The Civilized Market is a provocative critique of many of the stale myths of capitalism. Business has been the undoubted engine of progress, but the capitalist system is in danger of being overwhelmed by the problems of its own and the world’s growth. It has to reassess what it does and how it does it. It has to re-examine its purposes and its place in a civil society. This iconoclastic book weaves history, law, philosophy, ethics, economics and science with practical experience of business and a rare intellectual power. No-one who reads it will ever think about business in the same way again.About the Author:
Ivan Alexander One of capitalism’s sharpest observers is also one of its most successful exponents. He has run highly successful businesses in Singapore, Indonesia, California. New York, Dusseldorf and London.
