Capitalism and the Social Relationship examines the changing external environment of organizations. It explores the contradictions within the global capitalist system and their consequences; it assess and finds ways to create new knowledge for managers/leaders to reorient themselves in appropriate restructuring of organizations to better serve their stakeholders. The particular benefits offered by the book are: (1) a systematic discussion of capitalism as a system with the recent crises as a starting point which provides a vivid example for readers, (2) an explanation of why capitalism as a global system is at a crossroads, (3) a discussion of the capitalism 'dilemma' as part of the external environment of organizations and its impact on internal structures and relationships, and (4) the connection between fundamental economic outlook and its impact on managerial and organizational perspectives.
