A HISTORY OF THE WORLD IN SEVEN CHEAP THINGS A Guide to Capitalism, Nature, and the Future of the Planet

by | Read by Simon Mattacks

Contemporary Culture • 6.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

The authors tell the story of economics, people, nature, capitalism, and more as they explore the seven cheap things that have shaped the world we live in: nature, money, work, care, food, energy, and lives. Narrator Simon Mattacks reads at a fairly fast pace, keeping the information moving but also injecting energy into it. The mix of technical terms, names of people and places, and phrases in various languages don't slow him down him a bit, and his narration is engaging. The authors discuss why and how each of these things was made "cheap" and also look at ways to understand the world--and the planet's resources--in the twenty-first century. This mix of economics and ecology presented in Mattacks smooth, calm voice makes for a great listen. E.N. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2018]
