The author of this book asserts that the phenomenon of the economic meltdown in 2008 isn't an accidental occurrence; rather, it is a result of the entire social system which is driven by contemporary culture as crystallized around the internet. This book examines the personal damage done to lives, aspirations, and social and physical security due to the globalization of economic processes. The author assesses the chances for an improved globalization with a human face, by shifting the value emphasis and priorities, to bring forth a new culture that proclaims the priority of human happiness over the exclusive accumulation of economic wealth.
