Possessive Individualism

A Crisis of Capitalism

Daniel W. Bromley

  • Explains the dual sources of current world disorder-a culture of "possessive individualism" and the emergence of managerial capitalism
  • Explains the evolution of four stages of capitalism-the current stage being responsible for severe economic inequality and political dysfunction around the world
  • Offers solutions based on: (1) renewing our commitment to the idea of loyalty; and (2) reconstituting the private firm as a public trust
