‘Possibilities for the Post-Capitalist Era’
with Harry Shutt
Saturday 13th February - 5pm to 6.30pm
“Dissident economist” Harry Shutt predicted the recent economic collapse as early as 1998 with his book ‘The Trouble With Capitalism’. In the second edition of this remarkably prescient publication, he argues that the on-going crisis has arisen as a result of fundamental economic problems, stemming from the growing redundancy of both labour and capital since the 1970s. In doing so, he exposes the sham of laissez-faire economics, showing that state power and capital are increasingly being used to prop up capital while pretending that the aim is to roll back the frontiers of the state.
His latest book, ‘Beyond the Profits System: Possibilities for the Post-Capitalist Era’, moves beyond the predictions explored in ‘The Trouble With Capitalism’ to offer a radical yet realistic way forward in light of the catastrophe.
The author will be discussing his theories and publications, answering questions and signing books. Do join us at Housmans for what promises to be an extremely interesting event.
