The European Green Deal will remain a fantasy unless ...

Thu 6 Feb, 2020

The European Green Deal will remain a fantasy unless we replace the growth-and-redistribution formula of economic justice with one focused on fighting precarity; in this way environmental justice will become compatible with social justice.

With Vula Tsetsi

On the anti-capitalist upheaval

Thu 6 Feb, 2020

I speak about my book Capitalism on Edge: the massive economic insecurity (precarity) is what ails the 99 per cent, not inequality and stagnant wages.

With Vula Tsetsi

On subverting capitalism

Thu 6 Feb, 2020

We do not need to endorse any grand utopia in order to mobilise the anti-capitalism wave that is growing now; we need to break away from the straightjacket of the choice capitalism or socialism.

With Vula Tsetsi

This is not populism

Thu 6 Feb, 2020

We should drop the label 'populism'. The anti-establishment parties and movements express a new agenda of four concerns: physical insecurity, cultural estrangement, political disorder, economic instability.

With Vula Tsetsi

The urgent policy changes now

Thu 6 Feb, 2020

I speak on the sources of precarity and what we can do against this.

With Vula Tsetsi

Socialism and capitalism are similar

Thu 6 Feb, 2020

We must drop the obsession with growth and focus instead on stability so that people can think big again.
