Postcapitalism: A Guide to our Future (Lord Patten Lecture on Social Renewal)

Paul Mason, Economics Editor, Channel 4 News

Date/Time: 6th October 2015

Venue: Curtis Auditorium, Herschel Building

Our world and, capitalism itself, is in the process of seismic change; the key question is: what comes afterwards? Many are adapting the way they behave and live their lives in ways discrete from, and contrary to, the current system of state-backed corporate capitalism. In the face of an uncertain future, journalist and broadcaster Paul Mason shows how, from the ashes of this crisis, we have the chance to create a more socially just and sustainable global economy.
