Vulture Capitalism with Grace Blakeley

20 March @ 6:00 pm 7:00 pm

Vulture Capitalism

The acclaimed economic commentator and journalist wants to explain why everything we know about capitalism is wrong. Her new book Vulture Capitalism casts a merciless light on some of the world’s biggest corporations from Amazon to Boeing, revealing dark truths about late-stage capitalism.

Find out why free markets aren’t really free, how record corporate pro­fits don’t trickle down to everyone else, why we aren’t empowered to make our own choices – and what we can do change this.

“A galvanising takedown of neoliberalism’s ‘free market’ logic, one rooted as much in history as it is in current events. Blakeley’s argument is well researched, clear, and devastating. Most important of all, she charts a path forward based in hope, democracy, and liberation.” Naomi Klein, author of Doppelganger and The Shock Doctrine

Grace Blakeley is an author, journalist, and commentator.  Her writing has appeared in Tribune and the New Statesman. She is the author of Stolen, The Corona Crash, and Vulture Capitalism, and edited Futures of Socialism. Find out more at GraceBlakeley.co.uk.
