Richard Sennett on the New Capitalism
What are the differences between earlier forms of industrial capitalism and the more global, boom and bust version of capitalism that is taking its place? In recent years, reformers of both private and public institutions have preached that flexible, global corporations provide a model of freedom for individuals. But as Professor Richard Sennett explains with this latest economy model come new social and emotional traumas that only a certain kind of person can prosper from.
Professor Richard Sennett, Professor of Sociology at the London School of Economics and Bemis Professor of Social Sciences at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology talks about his new book in BBC 4 Radio (link below).
