Raj Patel: A Guide to Capitalism, Nature and the Future of the Planet

Nature, money, work, care, food, energy and lives—these are the seven things that have made our world and will continue to shape its future. But at what cost? Throughout history, rebellions and uprisings have prompted fresh strategies to make the world cheap and safe for capitalism. And while technology and commerce have modernized and transformed society, our planet has paid a hefty price.

In this program, Patel will issue an urgent call for innovative and systematic thinking to help reclaim our world and save us before it’s too late.
