The Support Economy: re-inventing capitalism

Tuesday 29 April, 6pm
Old Theatre, Old Building

Is it time for a new capitalism? Managerial capitalism has outlived the mass society it was once designed to serve and cannot meet the needs of today's people. But the chasm now separating individuals and organisations represents the opportunity to forge a new 'distributed capitalism' for a post-modern society. Can we invent capitalism truly suited to our times?

Shoshana Zuboff, critically acclaimed author of In the Age of the Smart Machine, and James Maxmin, advisory director to Mast Global, will be speaking on The Support Economy: re-inventing capitalism on Tuesday 29 April at LSE.

This lecture is free and open to all with no ticket required.
