Raj Patel: 'Nothing cheap lasts forever'
Date created :
In recent times, a plethora of books have been published urging us to hurry up and do things or change our habits: "101 Things to Do Before You Die" or "750 Everyday Ways You Can Help Clean Up the Earth". Our guest Raj Patel has co-authored "A History of the World in Seven Cheap Things: A Guide to Capitalism, Nature and the Future of the Planet". It looks at how our desire to get the best deal and spend as little as possible is having a negative impact on the world we live in.
Raj Patel's book "A History of the World in Seven Cheap Things" has just been published in French as "Comment notre monde est devenu cheap".
