Hiperconsumo Contínuo e o Fim da Classe Média num Planeta Hiperurbano

Authored by Emanuel Dimas de Melo Pimenta

Sociedade Low Power é um impressionante livro escrito pelo arquiteto e filósofo brasileiro Emanuel Dimas de Melo Pimenta. Ele representa mais de oito anos de pesquisas sobre a metamorfose planetária em diversos países. As mudanças econômicas, as estratégias geopolíticas, a profunda transformação dos valores humanos, a educação, ética, cultura, os crescentes conflitos entre o Estado e a Nação, as novas tecnologias de hipercomunicação, o fim da privacidade, o fim da classe média, a emergência de uma sociedade estruturada no entretenimento contínuo e no hiperconsumo - Pimenta analisa todos esses fatos e muito mais, mostrando como eles constituem uma nova abordagem estética, um novo salto civilizacional. O livro tem uma introdução escrita pelo jornalista ítalo-suíço Corrado Bianchi Porro, um dos mais importantes especialistas suíços em economia, e um prefácio escrito pelo legendário jornalista americano Jon Rappoport.
