Michael Albert speaking engagements in Dublin for Oct 11th, 12th & 13th
Title: Alternatives to Capitalism and the IMF Bailout: Parecon – Participatory Economics
Time: 20:00 – 23:00
Address: Central Hotel, Exchequer St Dublin 2
Today's capitalist system has brought with it war, economic crisis, ecological decay, massive wealth inequality, alienation, authoritarianism and social breakdown. Are these problems inevitable, or could they be overcome in a different system? And if so, how? These issues, perhaps for the first time in history, have become a matter of survival.
Michael Albert, co-author of 'ParEcon: Life After Capitalism', co-founder of ZCommunications and leading US social activist will present 'Participatory Economics', a vision for a type of democratic economy based on equitable co-operation that is put forward as an alternative to capitalism and also to other 20th century systems that have gone under the label 'socialism'. It includes new institutions that seek to foster self-management, equity, diversity and solidarity. Parecon is a direct and natural outgrowth of hundreds of years of struggle for economic justice as well as contemporary efforts with their accumulated wisdom and lessons.
Title: Social Media and Revolution: Znet/Zsocial and The Alternative to Corporate Facebook/Twitter
Time: 13:00 – 14:00
Address: University College Dublin Check http://www.michaelalbert2011.info/ for room details
Michael Albert, co-founder of ZNet - one of the world's largest radical media websites, will discuss the role of social media and revolution in the light of the so called ‘facebook and twitter revolutions’ and will explain future projects including; ZSocial, a social network intended as a progressive alternative to corporate facebook/twitter and a tool for activists and organisations striving to build a better world
Time: 18:00 – 20:00(approx.)
Title: From Here to There: Building an Alternative Society
Address: Lecture Room 3106 Arts Building, Trinity College Dublin, College Green, Dublin 2, Ireland
Michael Albert, co-author of 'ParEcon: Life After Capitalism' will expand on the concepts Participatory Economics and discuss how a better world, based on the core values of solidarity, equity, diversity and self-management, can be achieved and explain a new project initiated by ZNet building on current attempts around the world to establish a new international organisation for a participatory society (IOPS).
