  • A propos de Think dinner: Capitalism on Edge

    World renowned expert and Full Circle member shares her insights and knowledge on capitalism, precarity, and exposes possible compelling solutions. Ask questions, challenge ideas (your own and other people’s) and get to know the members, over a light supper.

    Albena Azmanova claims that what ails the 99% is not inequality, but wide-ranging economic insecurity that has not spared the well-educated, the highly skilled, and well-paid individuals. An epidemic of precarity enabled the Covid-19 pandemic. Think about it, even the most affluent, scientifically advanced, and politically sophisticated Western societies are having such trouble coping with a virus that is neither completely unknown nor too deadly. Albena's book aims to contribute to the struggle for a better world. As U.S. economist James Galbraith put it, Capitalism on Edge is "the big-think book of our time".
    Come debate Albena's big idea.
    (Your ticket includes a one course meal and drink)
