Capital's Vengeful Utopia; Unpayable Debts from Above and Below

Lio Podcast 2020 New5


Capital's Vengeful Utopia: Unpayable Debts from Above and Below by Max Haiven, from L'Internationale Online on Soundcloud.

In this podcast, Max Haiven unpacks the paradigm of unpayable debts as a methodology of oppression, "considering the current order of financialised, neoliberal, racial capitalism as a kind of utopia for capital” and calls to a process of radical imagination towards a different economic structure. The recording is based on an article with the same name, which is featured in L'Internationale Online's ePub Austerity and Utopia.


Self-recorded by Max Haiven in London in April 2020, during lockdown.
