The Toronto book launch of Socialist Register 2020 – Beyond Market Dystopia: New Ways of Living (edited by Leo Panitch and Greg Albo).

Connecting with and going beyond classical socialist themes, this volume of the Socialist Register combines analysis of the severe contradictions of neoliberal capitalism with plans for new strategic, programmatic, manifesto-oriented directions for alternative ways of living. Fourteen original essays locate such utopian visions and struggles in the dystopian present.

  • Amy Bartholomew: Beyond the ‘barbed-wire labyrinth’: migrant spaces of radical democracy (4:48).
  • Michelle Chen: A new world of workers: confronting the gig economy (31:40).
  • Stephen Maher (58:17) and Sam Gindin (1:09:44): Class politics, socialist policies, capitalist constraints.

Chaired by Leo Panitch and Greg Albo. Recorded in Toronto, 22 January 2020.
