Postcapitalism 2015: Rethinking, Crisis, Culture, and Politics (Leeds Beckett University)

November 6, 2015

Post-Capitalism 2015: Rethinking Crisis, Culture, and Politics
6 November 2015, Leeds Beckett University

The beginning of the twenty-first century has been turbulent and traumatic, with a global Financial Crisis, a prolonged depression, and deep cuts in public spending under the aegis of ‘austerity’. How can we emerge from this period as a fairer, more equal society?

This one-day event aims to engage participants in dialogue about the future of capitalism at a transformative moment, one in which current models have failed and new ways forwards must be forged. Programmed sessions will consider strategies, opportunities and innovations towards a sustainable and more equal post-capitalist society.

Across the day, delegates will engage in dialogue and participate in a unique combination of cutting-edge talks, interactive events, workshops and boot-camps including:


  • Paul Mason (Economics Editor, Channel 4 News).
  • Prof Alex Nunn, Leeds Beckett University.
  • Dr Stephen Kinsella, University of Limerick.
  • Dr Peter Knight, University of Manchester.
  • Prof Nicky Marsh, Southampton University.


  • CeaSar.
  • Post-Crash Economics Boot-Camp.
  • OPEN-Economics.
  • AHRC Show Me the Money.

Screening and Producers Q&A
Film – Boom Bust Boom: Python’s Terry Jones versus the Credit Crunch.
The full programme will be made available in October 2015.
The event is supported by the Centre for Culture and the Arts at Leeds Beckett University alongside Penguin, Waterstones, OPEN-Economics Leeds and the Post-Crash Economics Society.
