<nettime-ann> life after capitalism (Modified by Geert Lovink)

From: newsletter {AT} droppingknowledge.org

three free voices on life after capitalism

This was the week of the world forums. The World Economic Forum 2007 in Davos started on January 24 and will last until Monday 28, 2007. This annual meeting is characterized by growing business participation. This year 800 of the 2,400 participants are chief executives or chairmen. The participants will address this year’s theme “The Shifting Power Equation”.

The theme of the 7th annual World Social Forum this week in Nairobi was “People’s Struggles, People’s Alternatives”. The World Social Forum is expanding democratic spaces for those seeking concrete, sustainable and progressive alternatives to globalization. 

Both conferences triggered us to think about the question: “What’s after capitalism?” Take a look at how some of our participants at September’s Table of Free Voices answered the question. Then share your own thoughts on the subject on www.droppingknowledge.org

Anthony Arnove is one of the most fearless of the younger generation of American cultural commentator and activitists.

Over 100 more answers to this question can be found in The Table of Free Voices Archive. Also be sure to check out how Table participants answered questions like “Why is it socially acceptable to hoard wealth while so many go without basic needs?” or “Does our wealth depend on the 3rd world being poor?”
