Events of the past few years serve as stark reminders of the inequalities that lie at the heart of global capitalism.

While the incomes of 99% of the world’s population have fallen since the start of the pandemic, the fortunes of the ten richest men have doubled. The carbon emissions of the richest 1% more than double those of the poorest half of humanity. How do we make sense of the unequal and ecologically unsustainable ways of life generated by capitalism? Is it possible to envision and build alternative futures that ensure prosperity for all?

In this webinar series, prominent scholars from within the social sciences and humanities will be invited to present their research and to reflect on these urgent questions. Students and the public are encouraged to participate and join the discussion.

Presenters: Alfredo Saad-Filho (King’s College London), Carlota Pérez
