Sasha Lilley on Capitalism, Occupation, and The Discontents
Wednesday, December 7th: 7pm
Three years into the deepest economic crisis since the Great Depression, the discontented are finally re-occupying public space to challenge the vast inequalities of wealth and power in this country and around the world. How did we get here? Can we turn the clock back to a kindler, gentler form of capitalism? Or do we need to challenge the system entirely? And what are the challenges that we face, following decades of defeat and the narrowing of the radical imagination? These are some of
the issues that Sasha Lilley poses in "Capital and Its Discontents: Conversations with Radical Thinkers in a Time of Tumult"
Sasha Lilley is a writer and radio broadcaster. She's the co-founder and host of the critically acclaimed program of radical ideas, Against the Grain. Sasha is the series editor of PM Press’ political economy imprint, Spectre, and is the author of "Capital and Its Discontents".
