BEYOND DIGITAL CAPITALISM. NEW WAYS OF LIVING: SOCIALIST REGISTER 2021 BEYOND DIGITAL CAPITALISM. NEW WAYS OF LIVING: SOCIALIST REGISTER 2021
Edited by Leo Panitch and Greg Albo

As digital technology became integral to the capitalist market dystopia of the first decades of the 21st century, it refashioned both our ways of working and our ways of consuming, as well as our ways of communicating. And as the Covid-19 pandemic coursed through the world's population, adding tens of billions of dollars to the profits of high-tech corporations, its impact revealed grotesque class and racial inequalities and the gross lack of public investment, planning and preparation which lay behind the scandalously slow and inadequate responses of so many states.
