PostCapitalism: Envisaging A Shared Future

CATHEDRAL FLOOR EVENT
Tuesday 3rd November 2015, 6.30pm - 8.00pm
St Paul's Cathedral, London

This event, organised in partnership with Penguin Books, will discuss the thesis in Paul Mason's recent book PostCapitalism: A Guide to Our Future with a keynote speech from the author, responses from panel members and an audience Q&A.

Held under the historic dome of St Paul's, the evening will explore the possibility that we are on the brink of profound social change that will require an entirely new paradigm that looks beyond the usual structures and relationships classified by contemporary capitalism. What role will innovations in technology have on our economic life, and how might they change the way we relate to one another in society? Will this result in viable alternatives to capitalism emerging in newly claimed spaces of enterprise and collaboration, and what might the transition look like in practice? Who will benefit from these changes, and who might get left behind?

Speakers:

Paul Mason, Economics Editor for Channel 4 News (keynote)

Ann Pettifor, Director of Policy Research in Macroeconomics (PRIME)

Phillip Blond, Director of ResPublica

Chaired by Elizabeth Oldfield, Director of Theos
