Speaker: Paul Mason, journalist and author of the best-selling book PostCapitalism: A Guide to Our Future

Since the smashing of labour’s collective bargaining power under neoliberalism, how is the transition to a postcapitalist society to be enacted? Are we currently witnessing the zombie state of neoliberalism in its death throes? What is the role of technology and automation, as well as human agency, in shaping the future?
