On 10th October from 6.30pm – 8.30pm in the Pearce Institute (Billiard Room), we have a chance to spend an evening with the economist and author, Michael Albert.

Michael will be talking about his new book Practical Utopia: Strategies for a Desired Society (preface by Noam Chomsky and published by PM Press), about building a participatory society and economy in today’s world and connecting that to what is going on in Scotland

Michael Albert has been politically active since the mid 1960s, in the civil rights movement, Vietnam War protests and alternatives to capitalism, including Students for a Democratic Society, Zcommunications and PARECON.

He co-founded South End Press in 1977 & later co- founded ZMagazine & www.zcomm.org.

With Robin Hahnel, he has developed their ideas around participatory economics based on the key values of Self-Management, Justice, Solidarity, Diversity, Efficiency and Sustainability.

He has published, campaigned and communicated his work globally.
