Another Now - Dispatches from an Alternative Present

Author(s): Yanis Varoufakis

Adult Non-Fiction

What would a fair and equal society look like?

Imagine it is now 2025 and that years earlier, in the wake of the world financial crisis of 2008, a new post-Capitalist society had been born. In this ingenious book, world-famous economist Yanis Varoufakis draws on the greatest thinkers in European culture from Plato to Marx to offer us a dramatic and tantalising glimpse of this brave new world, where the principles of democracy, equality and justice are truly served.

But in setting out what would be needed to forge such a society, he identifies a painful but important truth- that the greatest obstacles to making such a vision a reality lie within each of us.

This book offers answers to some of the most pressing questions of today. It also challenges us to consider how we might answer them in our lives.

It is a book to return to, time and again, for ideas and provocation, for solace and inspiration.
