LIMITATIONS AND POSSIBILITIES OF DESIRE FOR A BETTER FUTURE
by Professor Andrew Samuels
How will the post-virus future be different from the past when it comes to economics?
The market-driven unfair distribution of wealth, whether nationally or internationally, underpins most other expressions of privilege, such as ethnic and gender disadvantage and discrimination. Many people want significant changes, as does Andrew. But will we truly see such changes?
What are the obstacles to our desire?
In a talk which uses a psychosocial focus, Andrew challenges a few fundamental economic assumptions. If these are unaddressed, it will undermine any possibility of change.
So: A depth psychological engagement with class, money, inherited wealth and sacrifice, with an experiential guarantee to put you in touch with your ‘inner billionaire’.
