Paul Mason, ‘Can Robots Kill Capitalism?’ video

by Adam David Morton on February 13, 2017

This guy [Trump] probably knows where Stoke-on-Trent is, where UKIP is trying to beat Labour in a highly contested byelection. I would not be surprised if in his office, they are discussing what is happening, in this tiny beleaguered town that Adam comes from, right now

— Paul Mason, University of Sydney (6 February 2017).

Neoliberalism is broken. In a unique collaborative event that brought together the Department of Political Economy, the School of Social and Political Sciences at the University of Sydney, Sydney Ideas and the Greens Political Education Trust, this was the central and starting message of Paul Mason’s talk ‘Can Robots Kill Capitalism?’.

In this talk Paul Mason outlines how, from the ashes of the recent financial crisis, we have the chance to create a more socially just and sustainable global economy.

Watch the video below and engage further with the critique of neoliberalism in your everyday lives, your intellectual protests, and your readings of Paul Mason’s latest best-selling book PostCapitalism: A Guide to Our Future.
