This treatise introduces the figures of shareholder, stakeholder, index tracker, bondholder and options trader as cosmopolitan financial actors in order to describe and explain the development of global capitalism with regard to a series of more or less different capitalisms.

A typology of capitalisms is introduced for its "diversity in uniformity," illustrated by the Ferris Wheel of capitalism. This treatise deals with the modern essentials of cosmopolitan capitalist economy: free trade and mobility of capital, direct investments, migration, global labour arbitrage.

He has an excellent command of standard econ
