Talk: “Capitalism, Crisis, and Utopian Aspirations,” with Sasha Lilley, author of Capital and Its Discontents
Capitalism is stumbling, empire is faltering, and the planet is thawing. Yet many people are still grasping to understand these multiple crises and find a way forward to a just future. Into the breach come the essential insights of Capital and Its Discontents, which cut through the gristle to get to the heart of the matter about the nature of capitalism and imperialism, capitalism’s vulnerabilities at this conjuncture—and what can we do to hasten its demise.
Sasha is the author of Capital and Its Discontents: Conversations with Radical Thinkers in a Time of Tumult (PM Press, 2011). She is the cofounder and host of the critically acclaimed program of radical ideas, Against the Grain. As program director of KPFA radio, the flagship station of the Pacifica Network, she headed up such award-winning national broadcasts as Winter Soldier: Iraq and Afghanistan. Sasha is the series editor of PM Press’ political economy imprint, Spectre.
