Capitalism: The six part series

Capitalism is an ambitious and accessible six-part documentary series that looks at both the history of ideas and the social forces that have shaped the capitalist world.

Blending interviews with some of the world’s great historians, economists, anthropologists, and social critics (view the complete list of participants), with on-the-ground footage shot in twenty-two countries, Capitalism questions the myth of the unfettered free market, explores the nature of debt and commodities, and retraces some of the great economic debates of the last 200 years.

    Just tuned in around 12:15pm – can someone tell me the author and title of the book on popular capitalism (I think – she spoke a lot about Marx and how class is usually ignored in political discussions)? Very important I think.
