Star economist and author of Adults in the Room, Yanis Varoufakis returns with a compelling vision of what a new post-Capitalist society might look like.

Another Now: Dispatches from an Alternative Present

What would a fair and equal society look like? The world-renowned economist and bestselling author Yanis Varoufakis presents his radical and subversive answer.

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, Yanis Varoufakis draws on the greatest thinkers in European culture from Plato to Marx, as well as the great thought-experiments of science fiction, to offer us a dramatic and tantalising glimpse of a brave new world where the principles of democracy, equality and justice are truly embedded in our economy.

Through the eyes of three characters – a liberal economist, a radical feminist and a left-wing technologist – we come to see what would be needed to forge such a world but also at what cost. This transformative vision forces each of us to confront the profound questions and trade-offs that underpin all societies: how do we balance freedom with fairness? How do we unleash the best that humanity has to offer without opening the door to the worst?

Another Now offers answers to some of the most pressing questions of today. It also challenges us to consider how far we are willing to go in pursuit of our ideals.
