Pandemic Capitalism

Pandemic Capitalism looks at this mess from a systems lens and makes the case for a transition to a future that's more sustainable and just than the outcomes we currently endure.

Pandemic Capitalism

Our economic system isn't working for most of humanity. Governments have long kicked the can on major problems with band-aids, rather than undertake the required investments and deliver necessary systems change. The coronavirus has laid the folly plain.Pandemic Capitalism features essays on the possibility offered by Universal Basic Incomes, couched in the context of the global pandemic. In this age of growing precarity, and a growing threat of significant job loss due to technological advances in automation and artificial intelligence, we need to look at new ways of sharing the spoils of our increasingly productive economies, while also getting production back within planetary limits. Pandemic Capitalism looks at this mess from a systems lens and makes the case for a transition to a future that's more sustainable and just than the outcomes we currently endure.
