Our prevailing vision of social progress is fatally dependent on a false promise: that there will always be more and more for everyone. Forged in the crucible of capitalism, this foundational myth has come dangerously unravelled. The relentless pursuit of eternal growth has delivered ecological destruction, financial fragility, social instability and the biggest global health crisis in a century. What should we do when our myths desert us? How are we to adjust to a new economic normal? What does life after capitalism look like?
