… what could life in Australia be like after the failure of capitalism?
That’s the title of my latest piece in The Guardian . It’s had quite a good run, but of course, plenty of pushback, mainly along the following lines
- General objections to any kind of utopian thinking, even the very modest version in my article
- Political impossibility
- What about Stalin/Venezuela ?
What I haven’t seen, interestingly, is any suggestion that continuing expansion of financialised capitalism (aka neoliberalism) would produce a better outcome. Feel free to discuss this and other issues
