Two brilliant and influential minds look beyond capitalism, and chart a roadmap for a planet ravaged by pandemics, a climate crisis, and wars. 

Frank Barat, who has co-authored books with such luminaries as Angela Davis and Noam Chomsky, sits down with renowned author and academic Vijay Prashad, to explore topics such as debt cancellation, a wealth tax, austerity, the pandemic, the arms industry, the climate crisis, socialism, working-class social movements and much more.

Barat and Prashad take an honest look at the challenges involved in overcoming the grip the neoliberal world order has on the planet; and the ability of the wealthy elite to continue to carry out policies that are destroying the lives of millions. Yet, they don't leave the reader in despair, Barat and Prashad, masterfully show us a path towards hope and liberation by highlighting the often ignored worker's struggles and victories that are taking place around the world in countries such as: India, Kenya, Peru, Tunisia, and Argentina.
