Summary
  • This book suggests that the primary purpose of current production and distribution of products and services from the global capitalist system is not to satisfy human needs but to create profit for the owners of capital, which in turn has devastating consequences for the environment and for vulnerable people in both developed and developing countries. The wider dynamics of capitalist systems of production/​consumption and inequality are also explored in relation to economic and socio/​cultural perspectives. With this in mind, the essays address three key themes: relations between technologies, inequalities, and exploitation; issues surrounding technologies and development; and the nature of technologies and their associated opportunities for the future. -- Publisher description.
