ECONOMY OF THE MODERN

Economy of the Modern comments on the ambivalence of the technological advances of the 20th century. The enthusiasm over the mastering of nature and the dynamics of economic recovery in Europe after the Second World War are juxtaposed with the social reality of total commodification, corporate power and stock market speculation.
