In his 2015 book, Milanovic concludes that there is no longer any social 
or economic basis for class struggle of a socialist revolution.  So we 
must look for ways to make capitalism better and fairer. “Global 
inequality may be reduced by higher growth rates in poor countries and 
through migration.” Now in his new book, Capitalism Alone, Milanovic 
returns this theme and his ‘way out’.  Again he starts from the premise 
that capitalism is now a global system with its tentacles into every 
corner of the world driving out any other modes of production like 
slavery or feudalism or Asian despotism to the tiniest of margins.  But 
also capitalism is not just only mode of production, it is the only 
future for humanity.
