What comes after Capitalism? And are we there yet? In his urgent and clear-eyed new book, PostCapitalism: A Guide to Our Future, Paul Mason argues that we are on the verge of a profound change to how we do business and function as societies. New ways are emerging: from parallel currencies to time banks, from cooperatives to self-managed online spaces. We now have the chance to create a more socially just and sustainable global economy – but will we seize it?

The Economics Editor at Channel 4 News, Paul Mason is an award-winning journalist, broadcaster and filmmaker whose books include Why It’s Kicking Off Everywhere: The New Global Revolutions, Live Working or Die Fighting: How The Working Class Went Global and the novel Rare Earth. Paul will be in conversation with Katy Shaw, Principal Lecturer in Contemporary Literature at Leeds Beckett University and the author of Crunch Lit, a new book looking at how authors have responded to the financial crisis and credit boom.

This event is presented in partnership with Guardian Live.
