That’s a very sweeping claim. Presumably you have ernie ball cobalt bass strings done a search and found nobody making any other assumption. Was the search very thorough? Did it include Kevin O’Rourke’s work? I haven’t read Power and Plenty, but it’s hard to believe that a history of the last thousand years of world trade was written under the assumption that capitalism is the system to be understood, the only (possible) system.
If I were to recommend two books it would be The Economics ernie ball 7 string Anti-Textbook (I don’t get commission despite constantly promoting this excellent book) and Capitalism and Its Economics: A Critical History. The latter is by Pluto Press which has Troskyist origins, but the book itself isn’t so in-your-face ideological. Anyway all books are ideological, its always good to know the ideology before reading them.
