Description: A comprehensive examination of the development and impact of capitalist culture. From capitalism's European roots more than 500 years ago to the present, this text examines the problems caused by its expansion, inequality, environmental destruction, and social unrest. Global Problems and the Culture of Capitalism provides any reader with the anthropological, economic, and historical framework to understand the origins of global problems, why globalization and the global expansion of the culture of capitalism has generated protest and resistance, and the steps necessary to solve global problems. Up-to-date information throughout the text helps students maintain a current view of the rapidity of global change. Learning Goals Upon completing this book, readers should be able to: Gain insights to how our culture has come to be dominated by the requirement for perpetual economic growth.
