This is probably worth a listen if you want to expand your horizons and have a lot of time on your hands.
I would not say that I have a particularly strong leaning either left or right, but I felt that this was paper-thin. I have not journeyed (too) far into this audiobook as I found it tiresome from early on. It makes confident statements about the negative aspects of capitalism without really explaining the rationale behind its apparent evilness. We then find ourselves given a short, positive alternative without explanation.
It doesn't feel as though the writer has gone to lengths to justify his perspective of the world, nor to deride the alternative.
Imagine the general musings from a trade union agitator-slash-conspiracy theorist that people politely ignore in the local pub.
