Book event for "CAPITAL AND ITS DISCONTENTS: Conversations with Radical Thinkers in a Time of Tumult" by Sasha Lilley.

Capitalism is stumbling, empire is faltering, and the planet is thawing. Yet many people are still grasping to understand these multiple crises and to find a way forward to a just future. Capital and Its Discontents cuts through the gristle to get to the heart of the matter about the nature of capitalism and imperialism, exposing capitalism's vulnerabilities at this conjuncture and what can we do to hasten its demise. The book is a series of incisive conversations with eminent thinkers and political economists including David Harvey, Ellen Meiksins Wood, Mike Davis, Leo Panitch, Tariq Ali, and Noam Chomsky who probe deeply into the roots of the global economic meltdown, the role of debt and privatization in dampening social revolt, and consider capitalism's dynamic ability to find ever new sources of accumulation whether through imperial or ecological plunder or the commodification of previously unpaid female labor.

Sasha Lilley is a writer, radio broadcaster, and co-founder and host of the critically acclaimed program of radical ideas, Against the Grain. She is the series editor of PM Press political economy imprint, Spectre.
