Paul Mason, one of the world’s most renowned economics journalists, states in his latest book Post Capitalism: A Guide to our Future that capitalism has reached its limits and is changing. At the heart of this change is information technology: a revolution that – as Mason believes- has the potential to reshape utterly our familiar notions of work.
What notion of work and labour division will this ‘revolution’ bring about? How can information technology create such a change? And how can this ‘sustainable global economy’ he describes be made a reality?
Paul Mason will speak about these questions and discuss his theory.
