The title and reviews led me to believe this was a revolutionary new concept of capitalism without capital. Some kind of gift economy or as yet unimagined world changing piece of genius. But it’s just about intangible vs tangible assets.
Constant repetition of a single point. Tangible assets are tangible. Intangible assets are not. Tangible assets can be locked away. Intangible assets cannot. Etc. Scalability, IP, spillovers, yada yada.
The waffle about how we define and measure GDP and other intellectual concepts is a bean counter’s wet dream. Not my cup of tea.
There are sporadic analyses of companies and countries that make for interesting listening as they shed a tiny light on the concept.
The author excellent describes how intangible assets have become more important in the economies of developed nations, and how individuals, businesses and public institutions might respond to the challenges.
The layout is clearly structured and the authors are very knowledgeable in economics and related fields, and the audiobook is narrated by the always excellent Derek Perkins. Highly recommended
great book for those who work in intangible area I.e. patents, trademarks, art, music, etc.

Would you consider the audio edition of Capitalism Without Capital to be better than the print version?
No. Print might work better because of the complexities of the subject
Who was your favorite character and why?
There were no characters. This is a book about economics. You need to refine your algorithms in your software.
Which character – as performed by Derek Perkins – was your favorite?
?? The dollar? Money? What on earth do you mean?
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Only an idiot would make a film of this book. Who thought up this question?

You need to work on your software. Your questions are stupid.
