Attempts to explain the radical reshaping of the realtionship between the economy and society over the last 20 years struggled against the inadequacy of the traditional tools posited on market streamlining and flexibility. Bruno Amoroso reconstructs the pattern connecting community, human needs, modes of production, institutions and markets. In the light of the unsustainable costs of a globalization of the three-quarters of the planet, he proposes an alternative approach founded upon a polycentric system of cooperation and solidarity--the only one capable of transforming capitalism in the 21st century.
