John Holloway on the Multiple Crises of Capitalism

I have just discovered sociologist John Holloway and his approach to going “against and beyond” capitalism, expounded in two books, Changing the World Without Taking Power (2002) and Crack Capitalism (2009) [note: “crack” as in break]. Though he is not a Buddhist or a religious person (that I know of), his writings resonate with engaged Buddhism by elucidating means to create compassionate and humanistic social relations outside the logic of money, profit and exploitation. Dr. Holloway will certainly be a great influence on my thinking going forward.
