As you read British commentator Paul Mason’s prescription for a post-crash economy, you may find yourself thinking that it’s intriguing but idealistic and completely unrealistic. His goal is worthwhile: to create a system that would avoid the volatility that rocked global markets in the financial collapse of 2008. Mason promotes ideas that will be familiar to those vested in left-of-center economic thinking: a universal basic income, the return of privatized monopolies to the public sector and the breakup of big banks. getAbstract recommends his provocative take on these issues.
