Technology and Post Capitalism

This panel, featuring Paul Mason, David Harvey, Aaron Bastani, Alice Bell and James Meadway, is what first interested me in Mason’s concept of Postcapitalism. David Harvey provides a much-needed stodgy old Marxist counterpoint to Mason’s techno-utopianism. The overall contribution of the panelists is to sketch outlines of contemporary socioeconomic, technological and ecological forces, trends and tendencies — and the policies that might support them — pointing towards a transitional model that is neither neoliberal nor traditionally socialist.
