‘A landmark work’ Brian Eno

Imagine a world with no banks. No stock market. No tech giants. No billionaires.

Imagine if Occupy and Extinction Rebellion actually won.

In Another Now world-famous economist, Yanis Varoufakis, shows us what such a world would look like. Far from being a fantasy, he describes how it could have come about – and might yet. But would we really want it?

Varoufakis’s boundary-breaking new book confounds expectations of what the good society would look like and confronts us with the greatest question- are we able to build a better society, despite our flaws.

‘One of my few heroes. As long as people like Varoufakis are around, there still is hope’ Slavoj Zizek

Is Capitalism Broken?

‘We need to organise politically to defend the weak, empower the many and prepare the ground for reversing the absurdities of capitalism.’

– Yanis Varoufakis

‘Capitalism over the past twenty-five years has been an incredible moral good.’

– David Brooks

The Munk debate on capitalism

There is a growing belief that the capitalist system no longer works. Inequality is rampant. The environment is being destroyed for profits. In some western nations, life expectancy is even falling. Political power is wielded by wealthy elites and big business, not the people. But for proponents of capitalism, it is the engine of progress, not just making all of us materially better off, but helping to address everything from women’s rights to political freedoms. We seem to stand at a crossroads: do we need to fix the system as a matter of urgency, or would it be better to hold our nerve?
