Capitalist Realism: Is There Still No Alternative? with Alex Niven
Show Notes

To celebrate new Zer0 Classics edition of Mark Fisher’s Capitalist Realism, Adam and Will spoke to Alex Niven about his new introduction. Alex joins us in reflecting upon the historical context of the book in the midst of New Labour's Thatcherism, the student riots, and the global financial crisis, as well as exploring the key concepts of the book such as Market Stalinism, Depressive Hedonia, and the spectre of the Marxist Supernanny of postcapitalist desire. As Austerity and neoliberalism try to find a second wind in the midst of global crisis, we ask, how do we envision the emancipated future?
