Globalization and Technocapitalism PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Globalization and Technocapitalism free pdf "Globalization and Technocapitalism" considers the global reach of a new capitalist era, exploring the nature of 'technocapitalism' as grounded in new forms of accumulation, commodification, and corporate organization. As technological creativity, corporate research, and talent flows become more important than ever, this book explores the manner in which globalization acquires new contextual features that will become central to the macro-social dynamics of the twenty-first century. It thus sheds light on the resultant growth in global inequalities and more intrusive forms of global domination that are grounded in emerging sectors, such as nanotechnology, biotechnology and its diverse fields, such as genomics, synthetic bioengineering, bioinformatics and biopharmacology, and related advances in computing and telecommunications. A rigorous examination of developments in contemporary capitalism as driven by the forces of globalization, "Globalization and Technocapitalism" will be of interest to scholars working in the fields of social and political theory, international political economy, political philosophy, science and technology studies and globalization.
