Howard Bloom ponders the questions raised by the Great Crash of 2009: Is global capitalism on its last legs? Is the era of American leadership over? Has the West begun a decline into a new Dark Age? Does American civilization deserve to survive? In The Genius of the Beast: A Radical Re-Vision of Capitalism he insists that global society has only begun to realize its full potential, and he describes the crisis as an opportunity for the whole human race.
