Anitra Nelson - Beyond Money

THURSDAY, 25 AUGUST 2022 FROM 17:00-19:00 at New International Bookshop at Victorian Trades Hall

RSVP here: https://www.facebook.com/events/465849558337075?ref=newsfeed

Join Anitra Nelson in conversation with NIBS volunteer Lucy about their new book Beyond Money: A Postcapitalist Strategy. Nelson’s book is a truly radical engagement with the ways in which money shapes our lives and maintains its grip on our theorisings of a better future in all its anti-racist, feminist and anti-capitalist forms, and how necessary it is to conceive of a world beyond money in order to conceive of a truly better future. Anitra is a powerhouse in thinking about degrowth and about Marx, this is due to a truly thought-provoking and interesting evening.
Join us at NIBS for a drink at 5pm, with the conversation starting at 5:30pm and allocated time for discussion. Copies will be available to purchase on the night.
If you can’t make it in-person, you can join us via Zoom, link to be added closer to the event.
Read more about the book at the Facebook link above.
What would a world without money look like? This book offers a lively thought experiment of a world without money. Nelson shoes how money drives political power, environmental destruction and social inequality and argues for it to be abolished, rather than repurposed, to achieve a postcapitalist future. Grounded in historical debates about money, Nelson draws on a spectrum of political and economic thought and activism, including feminism, ecoanarchism, degrowth, autonomism, Marxism and ecosocialism. Looking to indigenous rights activism and a defence and advance of commoning, an international network of activists engaged in a fight for a money-free society emerges. Beyond Money shows that, by organising around post-money versions of the future, activists have a hope of creating a world that embodies radical values and visions
