World capitalism in the early 21st century - Neil Faulkner
Dr Neil Faulkner Neil Faulkner FSA is an archaeologist, historian, and activist. He works as a writer, lecturer, and broadcaster, and he directs field projects at home and abroad. His many books include A People’s History of the Russian Revolution; Creeping Fascism: Brexit, Trump, and the Rise of the Far Right and A Radical History of the World. He will argue that the current global crisis is multi-faceted, with economic, social, geopolitical, and ecological dimensions, and insoluble without the dispossession of the 1% (highest earners) and democratic control over society’s resources. He will further argue that the alternative is barbarism, and that this possibility is already apparent in the tidal wave of nationalism, racism, and fascism now sweeping across the world.
