AUD $24.99

The history, theory and impacts of this world-dominating economic ideology - in a large format, graphic guide edition.

Capitalism shapes every aspect of our world, beyond just our economic structures; it moulds our values and influences the way we write laws, wage wars, and even conduct personal relationships.

From its beginnings to the present day, Capitalism: A Graphic Guide tells the story of capitalism's remarkable and often ruthless rise, evolving through strife and struggle as much as innovation and enterprise.

This non-fiction graphic novel explores the key developments that have shaped our modern world, from early banking to the founding of the USA, the Opium Wars, financial crashes and the rise of big data. It also introduces us to the leading proponents and critics of capitalism - including Adam Smith, Karl Marx, Theodor Adorno and Milton Friedman - providing both a theoretical and practical understanding of this fascinating subject.
