Connexity : how to live in a connected world by Geoff Mulgan ( Book )
10 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 468 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The central issue Connexity addresses is the fundamental conflict that exists between the freedoms enjoyed by many, mainly in the Western world, and the growing economic interdependence of so many more worldwide. Mulgan, who is the founder of Demos, a liberal think tank based in London, and a member of Tony Blair's Policy Unit, writes, "Our problem is that freedom to behave as we would wish, without regard for our effects on others,runs directly counter to the other striking fact of the contemporary world: our growing dependence on other people. The world may never have been freer, but it has also never been so interdependent and interconnected. Only a small proportion of the world's population could now be self-sufficient. The rest of us depend on complex systems to deliver us water, food, justice, energy and health
The locust and the bee : predators and creators in capitalism's future by Geoff Mulgan ( Book )
7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The recent economic crisis was a dramatic reminder that capitalism can both produce and destroy. It's a system that by its very nature encourages predators and creators, locusts and bees. But, as Geoff Mulgan argues in this compelling, imaginative, and important book, the economic crisis also presents a historic opportunity to choose a radically different future for capitalism, one that maximizes its creative power and minimizes its destructive force. In an engaging and wide-ranging argument, Mulgan digs into the history of capitalism across the world to show its animating ideas, its utopias and dystopias, as well as its contradictions and possibilities. Drawing on a subtle framework for understanding systemic change, he shows how new political settlements reshaped capitalism in the past and are likely to do so in the future. By reconnecting value to real-life ideas of growth, he argues, efficiency and entrepreneurship can be harnessed to promote better lives and relationships rather than just a growth in the quantity of material consumption. Healthcare, education, and green industries are already becoming dominant sectors in the wealthier economies, and the fields of social innovation, enterprise, and investment are rapidly moving into the mainstream--all indicators of how capital could be made more of a servant and less a master. This is a book for anyone who wonders where capitalism might be heading next--and who wants to help make sure that its future avoids the mistakes of the past."--Provided by publisher
Politics in an antipolitical age by Geoff Mulgan ( Book )
7 editions published between 1994 and 2007 in English and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the last years of the twentieth century, many of our established political institutions seem to be in crisis. Parties are declining and falling apart. Governments appear unable to lead or to resolve outstanding problems. Radicals feel that old routes to change are blocked. In this important new book, Geoff Mulgan offers a wide-ranging and powerful analysis of the crisis of contemporary politics. He shows that what was once thought to be a problem peculiar to the Left has now spread to affect the whole of the political system, calling into question the future role of parties, politicians, and national governments. Mulgan argues that an entire era of political institutions and ideologies - stretching back some two hundred years - is now coming to an end, bringing confusion and disorientation to traditional political movements and governments around the world. Politics has transcended its origins in national institutions and spread into new domains of social life, from the global arena to the bedroom. At the same time its central motivating power has waned with a return to ethical and personal sources of meaning. In place of the old politics based around states and markets, a new politics based around the quality and reciprocity of relationships is slowly emerging, bringing with it radically new definitions of the links between past and future, governors, and governed, men and women. Politics in an Antipolitical Age is a major contribution to current debates and should be widely read
