Fredric Jameson claimed it was easier to imagine the end of the world than the end of capitalism. Was he right? Can new alternatives to the current paradigm emerge to conquer the world, or is capitalism the only realistic economic system?
In this video debate on The End of Capitalism, political theorist Robert Wade, economic advisor to President Bush Pippa Malmgren, and anthropologist Pnina Werbner pitch their alternatives at this year’s How The Light Gets In festival, curated by The Institute of Art and Ideas @iai_tv.
The End of Capitalism was hosted by Zed Books to coincide with the launch of our new Critique Influence Change series, which brings together pivotal texts from the past thirty-five years of Zed Books. Paradigm-changing when first published, these books have retained and grown in their relevance.
