In a rare visit from the USA, Michael Albert, author of ‘ParEcon: Life After Capitalism’, ‘Realizing Hope: Life Beyond Capitalism’ and co-editor and co-founder of the influential US publication ‘Z Mag’, delivered an introductory overview of the theory and practice he has developed over 30 plus years of activism.
