This is a wonderful book for our culture and times when Wal-Mart is in every town and city across North America.
They have a corner of the market. But many believe that they are just another boxed store that people should try and avoid, if they can. This is especially the case in small towns.
We all have the power of choice. We can choose where we shop and where we don’t shop. We can choose where we buy our groceries and where we shop for other things.
In this book, Tom Slee unpacks what it means to believe in the power of choice. Pointing out that individual choice has become the lynchpin of a neo-conservative ideology, he calls Market Think, Slee urges us to re-examine popular assumptions.
He draws on game theory to argue that individual choice is not inherently bad. Nor is it the panacea that corporations and governments claim it to be.
This is a great treatise. This book will make you think about choice in a whole new way.
This is a book written by a writer, researcher, activist, and software professional. He lives in Waterloo, Canada.
This is a book that I will read and reread many times in my life.
