Event description

Description

This talk will examine Paul Mason's book Postcapitalism: a Guide to Our Future. Mason discusses some of the changes that are taking place under capitalism: the massive growth in IT, co-operative production, the possibility of free and abundant goods. Is the emerging information economy compatible with a market economy? What will be the impact of the automation of semi-skilled jobs? Mason proposes Project Zero: a gradual transition to a post-capitalist society, where more and more will be produced for free, but there will still be money, banks and markets. Is this really a viable alternative, and is it preferable to a money-free and class-free world based on free access?
