Suggested Reading on the Commons: The Value of Nothing

Nov

The latest book in our suggested readings on the Commons is Raj Patel’s The Value of Nothing: How to reshape market society and redefine democracy.

This short, timely and inspiring book reveals that our current crisis is not simply the result of too much of the wrong kind of economics. While we need to rethink our economic model, Patel argues that the larger failure beneath the food, climate and economic crises is a political one. If economics is about choices, Patel writes, it isn’t often said who gets to make them. The Value of Nothing offers a fresh and accessible way to think about economics and the choices we will all need to make in order to create a sustainable economy and society.
