Contemporary Capitalism Part 1: Welfare to Debtfare.
Contemporary Capitalism is a 4 part series of talks, each part critiquing an aspect of how capitalism affects society today.
The talks were originally held in Dubzland studios, north inner city Dublin, in late 2012, and were organised by the
Provisional University, a group of researchers and social activists. [www.provisionaluniversity.wordpress.com]
The series was edited for broadcast by artist and Near FM volunteer Craig Cox. [www.craigcoxart.com]
Part 1 is given by Mick Byrne and discusses the financialisation of social resources in Ireland, and how financial institutions have become landlord like, with particular focus on housing.
