Peter Murphy has done it again. This time he has put his razor-sharp, analytic and synoptic mind to work on our global challenges: what kind of social order do we have when all forms of routine production are automated? In clear, humorous and biting prose he challenges us to think afresh about how we live and work today and what we might hope for tomorrow. The new era of ‘creative capitalism’ is as dynamic, volatile and disruptive as the labour societies of industrial and post-industrial capitalisms.
Peter Murphy’s lively and insightful book is fundamentally optimistic about what is nonetheless an alarming trend...An excellent contribution to a debate that will be vital in ensuring that we profit from auto-industrialisation rather than sink under the weight of post-industrial parasites.
