For decades, it has been easier to imagine the end of the world than the
end of capitalism.In the decade leading up to the 2008 financial
crisis, booming banks, rising house prices and cheap consumer goods
propped up living standards in the rich world. Thirty years of rocketing
debt and financial wizardry had masked the deep underlying fragility of
finance-led growth, and in 2008 we were forced to pay up.The decade
since has witnessed all kinds of morbid symptoms, as all around the rich
world, wages and productivity are stagnant, inequality is rising, and
ecological systems are collapsing.Stolen is a history of finance-led
growth and a guide as to how we might escape it. We've sat back as
financial capitalism has stolen our economies, our environment and even
the future itself.
Now, we have an opportunity to change course. What happens next is up to us.
