Black-E Theatre

TWT_052 Hegemony Now - How Wall Street and Big Tech Won the World

Is political struggle about values, ideology, or interests? What are the politics of digital platforms? Is the ‘long 90s’ over? Are we still living in a neoliberal world? Who won the Twentieth Century, and how do we win the Twenty-First? These are the questions we’ll be discussing as part of the launch of Jeremy Gilbert and Alex Williams new book How Big Tech and Wall Street Won the World (And How We Win it Back).
