What accounts for the stupendous growth of the modern economy?

The Capitalist Creed

Personal Project, 2017

I’m interested in the way the world works. How we, as human beings live and what makes our way of life possible. In his book, ‘Sapiens, A Brief History of Humankind’, Yuval Noah Harari beautifully explains the principles of our capitalist economy in series of simple cycles.

Seeing an opportunity to apply my creative skills as a designer and illustrator. I created five illustrated cycles describing the key mechanisms behind capitalism, emphasising the differences between modern and pre-modern economies.

The magic circle of the modern economy - premodern and modern economies
