Capitalism has become the universal social and economic order of our time. The capitalism of today, however, differs from that of previous eras- with intensifying globalisation, flexible organisations, and new forms of class divisions. GlobalisationMoreCapitalism has become the universal social and economic order of our time. The capitalism of today, however, differs from that of previous eras- with intensifying globalisation, flexible organisations, and new forms of class divisions.

Globalisation brings new possibilities, but also new risks, ranging from degradation of the environment to the concentrated control of the media. On the Edge comprises original essays by, among others, Polly Toynbee, Richard Senett and George Soros. They chart the contours of contemporary capitalism, analyse the role of the business firm, and consider whether the new capitalism is compatible with social cohesion and social justice. They discuss capitalism both as a form of culture and as an influence on daily life, and ask if capitalism has any viable rivals at the turn of the millennium.
