Daniel E. Saros on Digital Socialism and the Abolition of Capital (Part 1)

Part 1 of the in depth interview with Daniel E Saros.

 

While many are unsatisfied with capitalism and critique it in highly sophisticated ways, there are few concrete proposals for a socialist mode of production that could replace the capitalist one. Daniel E. Saros has developed such a proposal in his book "Information Technology and Socialist Construction – The End of Capital and the Transition to Socialism" which we discuss at length over the course of two episodes.
