The Vast Majority: Financialized Capitalism and Prime Minister Jeremy Corbyn?? with Grace Blakeley

November 14, 2019

Two of the most pressing questions facing humanity are as follows: 1. What exactly has changed and what has stayed the same about the global capitalist economy in the 21st century? 2. Are we gonna have a Prime Minister Jezza in the UK before Christmas?

Micah posed these questions and others to Grace Blakeley, a socialist economist, economics commentator at the New Statesman, and research fellow at the Institute of Public Policy Research (IPPR). She's also the author of a new book, Stolen: How to Save the World from Financialization.

She came through Chicago on the American leg of her book tour, and sat down for a discussion about the book and UK politics in front of an audience at Volumes Bookcafe.

Thanks to Volumes for hosting the event. You can buy Grace's book Stolen: How to Save the World from Financialization here: https://repeaterbooks.com/product/stolen-how-to-save-the-world-from-financialisation/
