«Είναι η Παγκόσμια Σταθερότητα άπιαστο όνειρο;» Μπόλτον vs Βαρουφάκη στο 2020 Ηolberg Debate, Σάββατο 4μμ

, 04/12/2020

Τι χρονιά κι αυτή! Ένα πραγματικό annus horribils που σημαδεύτηκε από μια καταστροφική πανδημία, από την κλιμακούμενη κλιματική καταστροφή, από το φάσμα ενός Νέου Ψυχρού Πολέμου ΗΠΑ-Κίνας, και βέβαια από τύμπανα πολέμου στο Αιγαίο και την Ανατολική Μεσόγειο. Κι ενώ ποτέ δεν ήταν τόσο απαραίτητη η πολιτική παρέμβαση σε παγκόσμιο επίπεδο, ποτέ δεν ήταν τόσο καταρρακωμένοι οι παγκόσμιοι […]

Review of ADULTS IN THE ROOM, both the film and the book by Anjan Basu in The Wire

, 24/11/2020

Travelling around Greece in December 2012, we often reached a museum in the early afternoon only to find it closed. The museum was working only in the mornings, we were told. In breathtakingly beautiful Delphi, an irate security guard screamed at my daughter who wanted to buy the tickets to the museum. He was pointing […]

Live discussion of ANOTHER NOW with Zoe Williams – A GUARDIAN LIVE event this Monday at 19.00GMT

, 21/11/2020

In Another Now, Varoufakis imagines a post-capitalist democracy. Set in 2025, through three contrasting characters – a banker, a feminist and a technologist – he paints a radical and thought-provoking blueprint of how democratic socialism could work today, in a world without billionaires, stock markets or tech giants. Can we truly critique capitalism without genuinely considering the […]

Anjan Basu reviews ANOTHER NOW for The Wire

, 01/11/2020

What would a post-capitalist society look like, if it was to avoid replicating the failed Soviet model? In which, important ways, will its economic and social institutions be dissimilar to modern capitalism’s? Will the market have a place in that society’s scheme of things? If the answer to this last question is yes, and assuming […]

Don Milligan reviews ANOTHER NOW in Prometheus

, 01/11/2020

Yanis Varoufakis’s dispatches from an alternative present must be read, reviews and precis will not do. It’s a tough read, not so much a novel, as a meditation on the technical and social impasse we appear to have arrived at. The potential for instituting real change provided by the pandemic is being squandered; investors are […]

ANOTHER NOW reviewed by Luke McCarthy in The Monthly

, 24/10/2020

Politics in a time of pandemic are grim. In the face of such global catastrophe, one that has only exacerbated the extractive, sclerotic nature of our existing economy, those on the left are burdened with the question: is there an alternative? And, if there is, how can we get there? These are the very questions […]

ANOTHER NOW – An intimate introduction (video&text)

, 08/10/2020

Why did I write ANOTHER NOW? As a critic of capitalism, I have long been painfully aware that critics of capitalism have no real answer to the hard question: “If you don’t like capitalism mate, what’s the alternative?” So, I decided it was time to take on two hard but pressing tasks: First, to describe […]

Diary entries on Brexit, defending refugees & writing postcapitalist fiction – THE NEWSTATESMAN

, 28/09/2020

Reading the newspapers last Monday, I was reminded that negotiations with Brussels are always an occasion for second-rate theatre. Ultimatums are usually issued by EU negotiators facing UK governments that talk enthusiastically of red lines and sovereignty. But now, if the Telegraph is to be believed, it is Boris Johnson who has given the EU […]
