First published in 1998, this author illustrates clearly how, on the threshold of the new millennium, the world is entering a post-economic era. On the basis of a comprehensive analysis of modern socio-economic trends, the author brings forward a new paradigm for understanding contemporary economic processes that change the substance of our civilization.
